A recent study ranked several popular browsers in terms of privacy. Microsoft Edge was tied for last in the study due to its tracking of people's hardware. The study highlights that over time these identifiers could be used to identify people.
The study by Leith breaks popular browsers into three groups, stating, "We find that the browsers split into three distinct groups from this privacy perspective. In the first (most private) group lies Brave, in the second Chrome, Firefox and Safari, and in the third (least private) group lie Edge and Yandex."
LOL I thought the same thing before I tried it since it is made by Germans. I used Google, Brave, Firefox, IE, Etc. After I set up Yandex my way the others can't touch it, BUT I hear ya on the NO WAY that was my opinion before I dove in
Germans? LOL read up. Give you a hint, what country does Interpol warn is the origin of much of the hacking activity? THIS IS NOT GOING TO TURN INTO A POLITICAL ARGUEMENT OR THE THREAD WILL BE DELETED. The Internet if a great place to research all the resources mentioned in this thread.
For that matter, I rarely take peoples' word for resources that are potentially sketchy in nature. Stay safe, this is the Internet, you know?
