iridium: good option to remove EVIL from chromium

about Iridium Browser · · Helpful Not helpful 12 Helpful Report as spam

google ads layers of evil to chromium to produce chrome.

chromium has some evil in it still

iridium offers evil-free versions of chromium for numerous popular platforms -- most notably NOT mobile.

iridium is best with uBlock Origin (adblock extension) & tampermonkey (adblock enhancing features).

When you allow third parties to whore your privacy for their profit you become their bitch. AdBlock. It is your right to privacy.

Still uses a "chrome/google" login, so not much better in that. Otherwise, above average, maybe good, but not excellent. Info still stored at Google; activities still tracked in part.

can't stand the google look it has; i prefer vivaldi
however after comparing both side by side the speed is the same for iridium as for vivaldi (with no addons)
if you value security you might use this, if you like the style of vivaldi, there you go (but might 'leak' your ip address)

So, you're saying it's as SLOW as Vivaldi (which is dreadfully slow, many people complain) but also has a basic look like Chromium (which can also be slow without tweaks such as those found in Chrome, Iron, Edge, etc.)
So, if you prefer a dreadfully slow browser that's your problem.

i said i prefer vivaldi over iridium
i use the new Opera GX, very fast and pretty nice interface, good browser
i use mainly for videos because it does not cache on the drive the data, the portableapps version of Firefox
.
so what are you talking about?
