I’m now free of Google Chrome! I toyed with Brave but I’ve settled on Opera. As well as all the usual browser features it has some additional ones – ad-blocking, unlimited and free VPN for private-private browsing, a nice screen-shot editor. And it seems just as quick or even quicker than Chrome.
I’ve also stopped using Google search and switched to DuckDuckGo. It’s probably not as good as googling (duckduckgoing will never catch on!) but I’ll see how it works out. DuckDuckGo has some advantages – see graphic on the right.
Moving away from Google Mail may be a step too far, but at least Google will know a lot less about me.
