    Nothing new. And nothing shocking.
    As long as u you use Internet, phone.... You could be spyed.

    So use traditional sealed snail mail, piegeon, horses... For communication.

    So if u are scared of being spyed, use stone edge, not modern edge technology

    Alternatively just talk rubbish over modern edge technology.

    Then spy would be totally confused

    Crims just talk in code, so doesn't really matter.

    Don't forget that Google is an Ad company. Here is an alternative for Chrome that's built on Chrome. It has worked well for me.

    You will have to investigate the settings to gain a better appreciation for it.

    Check out the memory footprint of having ET (279.5 MB) on the browser. Almost as small as cached tabs that I closed previously.

    No relation to the resemblance between the icon and my avatar.

    Unrelated but funny thing:

    If you "google" netflix.com on Edge, the first hit showing is hulu.com

    I use Opera by the way, and there is a Waterfox browser too.

    Not a tangent at all. I think our collective behavior can disincentivize Google and FB. Yes, I would have gone Waterfox if I was proficient in Web development because of the tools.

    Cool stats from the Brave homepage which I kept as default. 1+ month use.

    You can also make digital money by clicking on ads that you enable within a specific notification area. Doesn't earn enough to give up the day job.
