Google is doing their best to get even more people to ditch Chrome and switch to better and faster browsers such as Firefox and Brave https://9to5google.com/2019/05/29/chrome-ad-blocking-enterprise-manifest-v3/
And Firefox is making it easy to switch from Chrome https://www.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/switch/
@inditoot hmm I don't think there's any proof of that and it is open source. also the crypto part is optional from what I've seen
@bob yeah, it's not an ideal situation. i spend most of my computer time within a browser so i really need to use one and firefox is the sanest option that i can see right now.
@markosaric I was so going to boost your post, but then you mentioned Brave and "better and faster" in the same sentence ;)
@turion 😀 than Chrome but not than Firefox
@markosaric Fair point.
@markosaric you realize this will impact Brave (which is built on Chromium) too, right? Firefox may keep their webRequest API implementation but it would be a lot of work for little reward for Brave to maintain it out of the upstream Chromium distribution.
@da yeah i'm aware it's built on chromium but don't really know how it will affect them. adblocking is a big part of what they do so they must find a solution
@markosaric Brave’s own adblocker is built-in to the browser and not implemented as an extension. It does affect other extensions you want to run on Brave, though.
