A tale of two browser companies:
1. Google purchases your credit card history from Mastercard to link ads you saw to offline purchases. https://www.theverge.com/2018/8/30/17801880/google-mastercard-data-online-ads-offline-purchase-history-privacy
2. Firefox goes full anti-tracking https://blog.mozilla.org/futurereleases/2018/08/30/changing-our-approach-to-anti-tracking/
@davatron5000 Google's tracking effots are one of the reasons, I recently switched from Chrome to Firefox for all my personal surfing and non-developing work.
@eay Yah. I have Canary but just for Dev Tools when necessary.
@davatron5000 Mozilla is far from the company I thought they were, but moves like this make me happy they are still around and trying to push that envelope.
fingers crossed they keep up this steam.
@davatron5000 dang. Okay. This is it. I'm doing the switch.
@davatron5000 Brave is a good alt too. Chrome without the NSA. It’s a fork of Chromium.
And still a lot of people will use chrome. I switched about a year ago and I am still very happy with it.
