    This is true. Google probably knows better than me what I'm doing for the rest of this week.

    But so far, we have 3 or 4 members getting it, and they are from europe. I would like a second advice before i have some hair implanted.

    I hesitate to confirm you should have a mirkin implanted if you are in Croissantland: perhaps don't look up the translation of that hair implant

    Yes it is. Just ask an older woman with a big smile on her face.

    Another recommendation for the Brave browser- it's built on the Chromium browser engine (like Chrome), but doesn't have all the Google spyware nonsense nailed on.

    I use it all the time, and if you use Chrome it's similar to fly.

    Well, based on the input I see from people, you would think Google is the hacker/harbinger of death in the digital world..... And well... Chrome is Google, so.....

    I dunno. Dont have much to hide so I dont sweat it much.
    Chrome worked well for a while back in its early days, but for the last couple of years.... No love for it. I used to jump through hoops and go to Chrome, Firefox, for whatever reason.
    I just use whatever works and delete whatever I need to.

    Paranoia may destroy ya. :cool:
