      Firefox allows far more control over your privacy than does Chrome (or even Chromium on which Chrome is based). Not jut because it doesn't come with Google stuff embedded, but also because it allows complete control over things like webRTC (which can leak info about your IP address, hardware), whereas Chrome/Chromium and related browsers don't have this control.

      aIternativeto It's faster than Chrome, and even though it still has a little bit of telemetry, it's way less than Chrome. And unlike Chrome, ALL of the telemetry can be disabled with some tweaks.

      100% Compatibility with Google Chrome extensions and websites. Brave is privacy centric, and committed to changing how online content is funded. With Brave users have the option to opt-in to unobtrusive, infrequent, privacy-respecting ads which pay the user a few dollars each month, enough to donate and support content creators online.

      OPdrill Vivaldi is a lot more customisable than Chrome, Vivaldi has a lot more features than Chrome, Vivaldi is more privacy focused and it's based on the Blink engine (also known as Chromium) so switching to Vivaldi is very easy + it supports Chrome extensions.

      The new version of Opera implements the same web kit used by the Chromium project (and hence Google Chrome). Although this removes many of the features that used to give Opera a unique flair, the browser now boasts excellent compatibility with all modern web languages.

      termoyer It's one of the best browsers in terms of privacy. It routes your traffic over around 3-5 tor-points before it reaches the intended server. So your IP and other browser information is not directly visible to anyone.

      Top positive comment  over 2 years ago

      JohnFastman If you want to use a browser's Incognito mode (called Private Browsing in Firefox and Safari), you don't want where you go to be recorded in files stored on your computer. Microsoft Edge DOES store info about where you've been, even if you've been there using its InPrivate mode. (http://betanews.com/2016/01/30/stop-using-microsoft-edges-inprivate-mode-if-you-value-your-privacy/). Switch to an open source browser. There are plenty of good ones.

      Compared to Firefox (from where it was forked on), Waterfox looks pretty dated and some extensions refuses to be installed due to this -- depending on what extension you want, you may have troubles.

      TerrifiedTyphlosion If you haven't left Google Chrome because you think other browsers can't compete with its speed (which, in my experience, hasn't been completely true), try Waterfox out. It comes with the added bonus of being far more privacy-oriented than either Chrome or Firefox.
      Positive comment almost 2 years ago

      bird I think Waterfox is promising, especially with the developer plans to retain support for extensions that use old technology that Firefox 57 will remove.
