I looked for an existing thread to tag this on to but couldn’t see one that fitted that well.
I am concerned about the way that many browsers report your activities, your location and anything else they can glean about you for commercial purposes. Some companies provide browsers, search engines and other “free” software and services for that specific purpose. Microsoft and Google seem to be battling to be the one who locks you into doing all things their way with their systems that provide the richest source of personal data.
Then there are web sites that want to keep data about what you browsed or bought. Also there are social media platforms that do the same and in many cases these are linked up behind the scenes. I am hoping that by getting away from Microsoft & Google (including Chrome) a different browser would also help limit that kind of data collection too.
So my question is which browser(s) that do all the basic functions well and are stable, secure and easy to use also protect your privacy well?
I know there are review sites that produce reports on such issues but I was after personal recommendations from users. Why did you pick the one you have? How do you know it helps protect your privacy?
