There is no privacy on the internet regardless of the browser used.  ;D

Not quite true... ;)

 :-\ Well, ok, everybody ! I'm guessing one browser is no better than the next.

it's not a joke ::)
1 Chrome is sandboxed by default
2 every attempt to break Chrome has failed so far

This thread was about Privacy

So I though he was talking about Privacy

But he was talking about Security instead and I didn't notice it  :o

Hi bob3160,

Are you reacting to Logos? Well, because this is his opinion. I am well aware of the fact that privacy is non-existent on the Internet and they will do anything it will never return because of the gigantic sums of money involved. I have just been analyzing with Fiddler 2.1 what goes on and the trackers won't let go. Install Ghostery add-on for instance, which became a commercialized add-on and they can earn a bit more on your profile. Another thing criminals are robbing left and right from click-fraud through automated clicking botnets and click-farms. They are even more aggressive as spammers because one click can sometimes even bring them 7 fraudulent bucks (that the genuine adfirm is missing),

Cybersecurity is more of an attitude than anything else. Avast Evangelists.

Use NoScript, a limited user account and a virtual machine and be safe(r)!
