Browsers

Post by Achtung Englander » Sat Oct 24, 2020 12:01 pm

I am finding (with old age) I no longer care about brand loyalty anymore when it comes to tech. I just want efficiency or best value for money.

So when it comes to browsers, I no longer care about using the same one for ages. Having used Opera for over a decade I began to pissed with its inability to sync. I have used Chrome and Firefox (gone off them) and recently started using Brave. I found Brave is good in some parts (deletes all adverts) but some pages fail to load properly. So I decided to boot up Edge and give it a go. After installing some extensions like advert blocker, URL reader and Grammarly and playing with settings a tad (got rid of all news from the splash page) I am really surprised to find its functional, clean and fast. This, from Microsoft. Who would of thunk it !

Everything except Firefox and Safari are Chromium these days, Opera included.

Not sure where to ask this but I think it's a problem with Chrome. Recently any audio I play using the chrome browser on my phone degrades into shit once the phone either locks the screen or if I open a new webpage. It only started a few weeks ago and I can't figure out why :?

Anyone else noticed the same thing? It's a OnePlus phone using Android and only seems to effect Chrome. Why don't I use another browser you ask?, because I find Firefox on phones to be utter shite.

I don't tend to think too much about browsers, I use Firefox locked down with a bunch of privacy apps (Privacy Badger, AdBlock for YouTube, Facebook Container, Privacy Possum) and just get on with it. It is a bit more of a faff as it does not remember my browsing habits, and I have to click through a lot more GDPR data gubbins as a result, but my security is better as a result and that's the aim of the whole thing.

Fixed the problem by just doing what I should have done at the start, uninstalled and reinstalled Chrome. I'm actually ashamed it took me do long to think of that :oops:

Does Privacy Badger only work with Firefox then? Have it on my laptop and it's great.
