    If you're going to let a company spy on all your Internet activity, why choosing Google Chrome over Microsoft Edge? I mean Windows 10 is already spying on all your computer activity, Edge comes preinstalled, why bothering installing Google Chrome and let yet another company spy on all your Internet activity?

    If you're going to install a 3rd party browser, why not install Firefox and configure it properly?

    Of course they would ditch Edge for Chrome. How else will they all entangle their data sales. If they chose FF or else, I think I'd faint.

    I think most people care ZERO percent about privacy these days. And I think much of the blame is due to smart phones. The fact is: most people use their smart phone for just about all of their interaction with the internet. And those devices have TOTALLY unbridled operating systems and web browsers. You have to share every aspect of your existence (location, contacts, ad infinitum) simply to install a free game app. It's scary to me how quickly our entire society has been conditioned into accepting all of this as "normal."

    I couldn't agree more. But that can change if your Identity is hijacked or your credit card info stolen.


    I would change one word here...

    Change "ad infinitum" to "ad nauseum". :D

    I just got rid of my cell phone. I still carry it around with me (911 calls are free) I put the money I save each month into 220 mb/s internet.
    A better investment, I think. :)

    You're one smart lady. On a tangent, maybe 15 years ago I went to a buddy's house and he said, "I want to show you this cool website. But I need to go to the store first." So we went around the corner to the store and came back 20 minutes later. The web page still hadn't loaded on his dial-up modem! LOL. So I had to tell him about my cable internet connection. :biggrin5:

    as long as mozilla and 3rd party firefox forks do not adopt chrome we are good.

    i value my browser as it is right now, customized to the max.


    btw since edge is now chrome does that mean it has no sidebar? because chrome doesn't.

    Edge is not becoming Chrome. It's becoming a Chromium-based browser. There is a difference, namely the Chromium engine is not the Google spying.

    If you want privacy, there's another Chromium-based browser named Brave that might be worth checking out.
