Goodbye, Chrome: Google’s web browser has become spy software

Our latest privacy experiment found Chrome ushered more than 11,000 tracker cookies into our browser — in a single week. Here’s why Firefox is better.

@privacytools I use alteenative derivatives of Firefox to avoid further contamination with their "funny" ideas about making money vs. privacy.

There are lots of browsers, many of which are Mozilla branches. Pale Moon, for instance. Others include:
Basilisk
K-Meleon for Windows
Comodo IceDragon
Iceweasel
GNU IceCat
Tor Browser
Classilla
SeaMonkey

@Limax @smithy @privacytools quite a few of them are not xul-based though, and thus lack the flexibility of the "old" extension framework

@ginsterbusch @smithy @privacytools

The only one from that list that I use is the Tor browser. Some neat alternative browser are Qutebrowser (Vim-based controls) and Falkon (which is a minimalist browser with built in ad-blocking).

@Limax @smithy @privacytools I am full into Pale Moon. Also got a Seamonkey based fork which in turn tries to be an alternative take on Thunderbird.
