    The bug that prevents users from closing Edge is for those that think they are going to opt out.

    Pale Moon was good when it first launched then when they decided they wanna sway away from Firefox and have their own code (Gecko), it broke many things, lots of extensions don't work properly and numerous sites don't work. For example I use Zen Desk for work for our ticketing system. If I would login with Pale Moon, I would login successfully but then it just displays a blank page. I opened a thread on their forum but the developers don't give a crap really. It's like, use it as is or leave.

    Now I use Google Chrome for personal use and Vivaldi for work. Vivaldi also has a sync feature, all extensions from Chrome work and it is the fastest browser I have ever tried to date it's insane how snappy and instant webpages load win Vivaldi.

    More browsers than Vivaldi don't trust Google's new move:)

    Vivaldi, Brave, DuckDuckGo reject Google's FLoC ad tracking tech bleepingcomputers.com

    Makers of Vivaldi and Brave web browsers have rejected Google's new privacy-preserving proposal called FLoC, which is meant to replace third-party tracking cookies across websites on browsers, including Chrome.

    How do I know if my browser is included in a FLoC cohort?
    You can check if your web browser has been selected to be a part of the FLoC trial experiment by following the instructions provided at EFF's AmIFloced.org.

    Google Chrome just got a big upgrade that will speed up your browsing tomsguide.com | Today

    HTTPS by default = faster load times

    The shift to encrypted web connections by default is perhaps the most important change introduced in Chrome 90.

    From now on, if a user types in a regular web address such as "foofoo.com" into the address bar, Chrome will first try to connect to that domain using the encrypted HTTPS protocol instead of the older, plaintext HTTP protocol. (The "S" in "HTTPS" stands for "secure.")

    Google says this change will speed up loading times of websites (like Tom's Guide) that support HTTPS because before yesterday, HTTP was tried first and browsers needed to be redirected to the HTTPS protocol.

    Here's an animated GIF that Google made to demonstrate how this works.

    I can't imagine web browsing without it. When I have done it for very brief periods of time (i.e. on a clean install, or using someone's computer that doesn't have it,) I am always dumbfounded at how much absolute rubbish is on web pages that I am totally oblivious to. It's amazing how much trash it blocks that you never had a clue existed for the dumb-dumbs that are not using it.
