Google’s Chrome Bait & Switch

Now that Google dominates the browser market with Chrome (in other words: enough people have taken the bait), it is time for Google to flip the switch and make even more money:

This comment by one of the developers of uBlock Origin (the best ad blocker) is also worth reading.

I don’t know what makes people buy into Google’s tracking & profiling cult in the first place* and I’m not trying to pat myself on my own shoulder here, but Firefox has been my primary browser for a really long time. 😉 I currently use Opera (Chromium based) as my secondary browser, primarily for social media (ie. I do not log in to Facebook & Twitter with Firefox, at all). That setup works well for me and I don’t think I’m missing anything on Firefox (yes, the font smoothing looks different – big deal).
