It’s been a while since I’ve trusted Da Goog. The problem is, the beheamoth makes some fantastic applications that are practically impossible to replace.
For me, Google Chrome(the browser) is not one of them, however that might not be the case for others. So I present to you the Iron Browser. It’s Google Chrome stripped of all the aspects of the application that exist simply to identify and track you.
The two reasons I never even tried Google Chrome as a browser is because it was made by Google and it didn’t block ads. If I was hurting for a browser, I would rest on my laurels and try it if it had the ad blocking ability, but you’re going to have to build a pretty whizz-bang browser to unseat Firefox with my favorite addons. Nonetheless, with the the stripped “features” and the addition of ad blocking, I’ll give it a shot when it’s available for linux.
