    Or use a good, established and mature browser like FF or Chrome, and uBlock/Adblock

    Thanks for the heads-up, WIKIMAC. :thumbsup:

    I grabbed the source code from the repository. Going to see what's involved in building it. :)

    This is not a valid and constructive response. I am a Chrome user and like it so much even over FF so I'd think a good idea for you to elaborate a bit.

    :tea: It's just butt hurt people making comments especially when Firefox has lost relevance.

    A good browser should come with a feature to disable webRTC too. On Chrome there's no such feature, but uBlock origin takes care of webRTC. Unfortunately it doesn't block webRTC on Opera

    It is truly amazing what kind of advice is sometimes given here.... CHrome! :w00t2:




    PS: I do not want to be misunderstood, so let me add this:
    Please, feel free to use any browser you like, I simply have a habit of doing research about any software that I install on my computer. There are plenty of websites that will tell you more than you actually want to know about the available browsers. If someone recommends Chrome, it simply means he has NEVER done any research in it.... He recommends it, because HE uses it and he thinks that is enough .

    I don't believe that all these mods are worth the effort and definitely not suspect since they come with exploits that were patched in the original browser. I don't think you can beat FireFox with the extensions for Ublock0, Disconnect, Ghostery, and Privacy. That pretty much stops everything bad and maybe some good once in a while. :biggrin:

    Google Chrome...

    Sends the name of the file you're downloading to Google for whitelist checking; stores your IP address associated with the file for a few weeks.[1]

    Every URL you even begin to type in the address bar is sent to Google, in whole or in fragments, for auto-completion purposes.[2][3]

    Connects to Google every 30 minutes to download a list of malicious URLs, so the fact that you even have Chrome open is transmitted to Google.[1]

    Asks you to login to your Google account, so your browsing tabs, history, etc. is stored on Google servers.[4]

    Connects to websites in the background before you are even finished typing them in, without your explicit instruction.[5]

    Contains an RLZ identifier, an encoded string sent together with all queries to Google.[6]

    Summary: There is nothing, nothing, you can do in Chrome that isn't transmitted to Google through some channel.

    Oh and BRAVE was viral marketed all over the web for about a week, if you read their website you will find out it is essentially ADWARE. They replace ads with their own or you can pay website owners with bitcoin in some convoluted scam they are trying to pull. Really they just want to become an ad network.

    It hard to stop google tracking your browsing, but you can use chrome and make it easier for them.
    I'm ff because of plugins, but need something lighter. Their to heavy on resources.

    FF is very fast for me. I use it as one of my main browsers together with IE.

    I'm using Windows 7, so gradually I will use FF as the only main browser as IE is abandoned (no more IE12, ...).
