“Privacy Badger is a browser add-on that stops advertisers and other third-party trackers from secretly tracking where you go and what pages you look at on the web.” The Electronic Frontier Foundation has released Privacy Badger 1.0 for Firefox and Chrome.
“I hope this post has helped clarify how browsers store your passwords, and why in some cases you shouldn’t let them. However, it would be unfair to end the post saying that browsers are completely unreliable at storing passwords. For example, in the case of Firefox, if a strong Master Password is chosen, account details are very unlikely to be harvested.” Having read Jordan Wright’s post, I for one am ditching Chrome on all of my devices.
Another reason for me to stop using Chrome is this long-standing bug in Chrome for Android.
“For many Chrome is just a browser. For others who use a Chromebox or Chromebook, it’s a full-time operating system. The general consensus is that Chrome OS, the platform used on these devices, can only browse the web and run either extensions and web apps; something any browser can do. Simply put, the general consensus is wrong and the signs are everywhere.”, suggests Kevin Tofel.
