(And please don’t ask me “so which browser should I use?” There are no great alternatives. We live in a sewer courtesy of Silicon Valley. Use Safari if you’re locked into an iDevice, use GNOME Web if it works well enough for you, Ungoogled Chromium if you have an afternoon free to figure out how to install it, and use Firefox otherwise but go through all the settings and turn off the data grabbing defaults – something they know most people won’t do.)

PS. Brave? No. See Basic Attention Token.


@aral Well there is a very in depth article series made by Mike Kuketz (@kuketzblog) which checked out 12 browser (until today) regarding privacy settings and browser behavior.

Unfortunately the article series is in German only. But it gives a very detailed description of how a browser reacts and what settings to choose if you want to keeps it from calling home or somewhere else (if it's possible).

The series starts here (for those interested and understand German):

· · Web · 1 · 0 · 2

@aral Also this is not meant as criticism on you or your statement. I was just impressed who detailed it was written and the browsers were analyzed. That's all. I hope it was ok to drop this here.
