^ Where the “iot” refers to me being an idiot :lol:, for not reading up on what “google-chrome” appears to be storing about me (while all this is stored encrypted with my own pass-phrase on their servers.). And _not_ necessarily to Google.com itself. 😉
Anyhow… The following links are the ones I wanted to point out…
- How they (claim to) protect your privacy:
- And it gets even better:
So what do I have to say (for now): Well… For one, since I already do have the tendency to strip off useless clutter from copied links (right-click link and choose copy), since that’s a way for some of those “social-media-sites” to track your online movements.
This is why I use two ‘chromium‘ browsers now. 😀 The first would of course be good old “google-chrome”. The “second one would then be iron” in which I paste my ‘stripped’ links (from ??? ) and have somewhat more privacy (save for ip-address and useragent). All in all, a win-win situation. 😉
As a last: I like to see where I’m going and seeing urls “auto-magically” change (Yes I know, I could press ESC) upon clicking them, does cause me to have some concerns! Hereby not necessarily claiming the aforementioned “social-media-sites” to be irresponsible, due to the linked article! But what’s to stop anyone from “exploiting” this!? <- In short: Give me back my transparent Internet! 😆
That’s all folks!
