I choose to remove edge from wim file using DISM
Yes, that would be the best plan, avoid edge like the plague...
WTF Do YOU know what Chrome does?? Its adjust Windows registry, and collect ALL YOUR DATA
I wish I could say all of how much this is wrong but you caused my mind to literally spasm.
yup chrome is a spyware tool,
there is a fork of chrome called iron chrome,
supposedly they remove all google tracking code,
the problem is they haven't posted their source code in years,
so i wouldn't trust it much either
They are freaking out about the browser and the whole OS is doing the same!
i would say remove it, but if you're not going to, try this...
not sure if it will be effective though since you have to allow edge through the firewall to use it,
you might have to craft a crafty rule to use http/https and block everything else
Can you tell me what are the edge package names ?
I fancy testing removing Edge
you better stay away from Edge and Chrome...
O god you better stay away from one of the most popular browsers out there. I mean it could send things back to google or Microsoft given your choice.
Attention forum please be more realistic or hell research a little before posting.
Iron is Snake Oil, it just sets privacy settings inside the browser and stops you from changing them.
You can block Chrome phoning home for the most part via extensions like uBlock/uMatrix. What the updater task does, I haven't looked, and that would be an exception.
There is Opera, but I don't know if this nice browser is sending statistics to anyone.
Firefox seems to be the best at not spying on you.
For any browser, 'private browsing mode' box (this is false security). Running "NO SCRIPT" but you need to check it's default settings for sites, is another great add-on.
But even the fox can allow data out.
Best settings are go to In the browser address bar type about:config and press enter.
Saving lots of information of your previously visited sites.
Type: network.prefetch-next into the search bar Right click on the option and select Toggle to change the setting to False.
Referer logging is used to allow websites and web servers to identify what sites you previously visited.
Type: Network.http.sendRefererHeader into the search bar, and set the entry to 0.
With Geo-location Firefox will try and tell websites where you’re located Type: geo.enabled into the search bar, Right click on the option and select Toggle to change the setting to False.
Mozilla has a feature called 'DOM storage' in recent versions of Firefox which can be used to track you.
Type: dom.storage.enabled into the search bar, Right click on the option and select Toggle to change the setting to False.
**Prevents WebTRC connections from revealing your true IP.
Type: media.peerconnection.enabled into the search bar, Right click on the option and select Toggle to change the setting to False.
yeah it was, too bad they spent years developing the "cloud"
(instead of making it a better browser and making it run faster),
so you can have your browsing history and favorites in the "cloud" ,
now it takes screenshots of every site u visit?
lol who needs that $h1T? not me for sure,
i'm hoping someone will do a syncless, privacy oriented firefox fork
how about IE hhhh
Not sure why anyone would need cloud to save history or favorites folders, but to each his own. Can I ask where you got this info or how you know so I can check it out, and it this only if using cloud ? Thanks for any help.
they say you need to create your cloud account for it to be stored there , firefox/options/sync/
but all the sync services are running by default, why?
and it's set to sync everything and your momma,
i kid you not, just type in sync in about config and see what it syncs
Well, golly gee fella, thanks for your outrage.
Btw, I use Cyberfox. Genius.
Realistically, is there any way to secure privacy without using the latest technology. Connected to the internet, using smartphones, ATM machines, paying with credit/debit cards, driving newer model cars, the list is endless. Not to mention surveillance cameras are everywhere. The only way to remain private is to pay cash, stay off the internet, don't use smartphones, drive older cars and live in rural areas where there might not be any cameras around. In the end this is the world we now live in.
