This popped up in my podcast feed... Techmeme Ride Home (great podcast by the way, 15 mins of the most relevant tech news for the day)


The podcast references the post below - apparently there was a fairly large chunk of Google Search API docs present on github, I'm not certain it was a leak, but needless to say, it's out there, and while the original has been pulled down, it's available via other means.


It's always been suspected that Chrome has fairly robust telemetry capabilities, and this pretty much confirms it - every click, every bookmark, google knows - and if you're logged into Chrome, well, it's directly traceable back to you...
 
I've taken your advice, and reverted back to IE 3.0! Thank you!
 
@Viktor Jaep - noticed in your .sig, google nest wifi pro's on the mesh - would be fun to chat privately to compare things on the Nest WiFi platform - feel free to PM me on that...
 
never used them , thanks
 
Getting back on track - Firefox is likely the better choice for cross platform - Linux, Mac, and Windows, and all support similar capabilities...
That's my primary browser. It's snappy and speedy. Happily, also most popular plugins work with it as well. I'm super happy with the switch to Firefox (on Windows and on my Android Pixel as well)

i use FF on all devices ESR most of the time , it just works and is easy to customize
 
Firefox caught fire and died on me years ago. Never tried to revive it.
