Even mainstream media is noticing that Chrome is spyware:

@yogthos web developers who target only Chrome have their own share of responsibility for not giving users a choice of which browser to use.

@steko @yogthos If a website or a webapp does not allow me to use FF, I do not use such website. Same with paywalls.

@SeventhMagpie @yogthos I do the same, but we are a minority. And sometimes you don't have a choice. So we need to be more vocal about the dangers with a Chrome monopoly

@yogthos that the WP posts such an article (and not for instance the NYT) might also have to do with the WP belonging to Amazon, an arch enemy of Google.
