    Yes right now they don´t care about us but what if for some reason you become someone important in the future? Then they will have plenty of info about you that they can use against you for they own reasons. Also did you know that if you type certain keywords like "bomb", "hate America" or "islam", you´re automatically flagged and tracked by NSA because you can be a terrorist!...

    Also did you stop to think what can happen if someone rises to power in certain countries and decides to use their spying tools, like NSA and others, to enslave us??? Because sooner or later companies and governments are going to be able to know and control everything we do!

    I think everyone should be worried by this sort of stuff but i know, only conspiracy crazies like me worry about things like this because companies only want money and governments dont´care about nobodies and so on...

    Sorry about the rant, it´s just my opinion about crap like this...

    I've not met anyone yet who use Edge.

    It's a very good browser and i actually think Chrome is crap now, but it's cra pi'm used to and i'm lazy.

    As for privacy, no such thing on the internet for anyone, but W10 has nothing to do with government snooping, they will do that no matter what you use.
    Can't say i like it, but if tech is more important to me then it can't be that important to me lol.

    Ubuntu isn't that bad, as long as you don't mind Canonical and Amazon snooping..... I've actually considered installing it on the system in my specs to dual boot with Win8.1. I'm waiting for Ubuntu Touch to make it's way to the US, then I'll likely switch from Windows to some variant of Ubuntu on my desktops. I've got 1 sitting here for my son that will be running Edubuntu when he finally gets it.

    If they really make zero difference on or off and people can prove that in a court of law there will be a lawsuit that Microsoft surely doesn't want.... anyways, I'm using it either way because there's no other option out there for a gamer so if Microsoft and the government really are spying on me via my computers then they are going to be soooo bored looking at my daily life. :3eyes:

    I can vaguely remember reading something about MS acknowledging this, and blaming it on a bug (as usual)

    If they claim it's a bug, and that it will be fixed, I doubt any courts will care

    Remember Google collecting people's WiFi data "By accident"?

    Google was also ordered by courts to delete the data....which they failed to do in a timely manor.

    I don't see how the browser stats can be accurate. I know in my IE with my tracking protection list, Google analytics gets blocked. Actually I don't see how any of it can be accurate since most people have analytics blocked in some way. Chrome would be the least likely to block it so maybe that accounts for it's large lead?

    Still waiting for a proper add-blocking addon or third party utility worth its salt to do this.

    Edge simply can not be used to play something like twitch stream without constant interruptions from adds that you can block with Firefox addons.

    If you watching a stream on a TV/second screen the difference is basically TV without commercials or tv with.. take your choice.

    If they ever really did delete it

    Removing it from the servers they were ordered to remove it from, but keeping important data somewhere else sounds more likely for Google

    Google was caught with the data they were ordered to delete, after they were supposed to have deleted it. Of course, we all know Google isn't going to delete data they think they can make a profit from.

    I hate Chrome....Huge memory leak, and it loads a bunch of programs at boot. If you don't start Chrome and look at drive read/writes, Chrome is a top offender. Also, it is a pain in the arse to move its temp files to a different drive.
     
  20. Quite true, it's even worse that way, because ppl think they are secure.

    Ubuntu is great Operating System, I use it as an main OS, that problem is only related to Unity ("default" official Ubuntu distribution), other official Ubuntu distros, such as MATE, GNOME etc., do not have that problem, and it could be fixed by one command line/few click :).

    If you do mind, you can turn it off very easily, and for real, unlike in Windows ;).

    I use Chromium (based on Chrome), and i do not have any problems with it, it works far better than Firefox, even tho i do prefer Firefox, Chromium simply works far better with 0 bugs/memory leaks, i think it is availalbe on Windows, and it is basically Google Chrome strupped off from spywere, open sourced and changed default icon color, great browser.
