The problem with Chrome is privacy. I hate being tracked by Google, its creepy and rude and an invasion of my privacy.

Re: Microsoft Edge: Most Hacked Browser

Yeah Google is the all seeing. Here are some surprises from Google. You can type a post in ABX and before you submit it you can close all your browser windows including the one you are typing on. Then you can go reload your pages from browser history and it will open your ABX window with all the text you had typed. Also, you can go to some nefarious sites and Google will mention I can visit that site incognito lol. Google store is tied into a lot of businesses online. When you see Google pop up with that free $1000 insurance question after you buy something it is their way to track your CC purchases. I look at it as the glass half full, I would rather Google tracking me than someone else.

Re: Microsoft Edge: Most Hacked Browser

Your ISP knows everything not just google or MS....if you want privacy then don't go on the internet...wish it wasn't like that but what can you do? The worst thing to do is have a smart phone, its recording device, gps, camera....not good! For me I don't care anymore the convenience of Google for me at my age is worth it!

Re: Microsoft Edge: Most Hacked Browser

The worst that can happen is financial ruin and that could have happened before the internet with your credit card. In fact it is much safer nowadays to realize someone making unauthorized use of your banking accounts. Here are some good things to remember.
  1. Cut down on credit cards so they are easier to monitor balances.
  2. Do not post pictures of yourself online.
  3. Do not type something incriminating or libous

Everybody buys online, you cannot do so without a credit card so you end up exposing your identity.
