Delete Chrome. Now.
Google is using its exceptionally powerful position to make *the browser itself* analyze your browsing behavior and serve that on a plate in the form of "cohorts" to anyone interested.
They are transforming Chrome into a "browsing-history-passport" - right now.
If you care about your intellectual freedom even a little bit, you must put Chrome out of your life as soon as possible. Support others doing the same.
@tn5421 @setthemfree I don't know, please add information if you read the code and find out how users are enrolled or how to disable #FLoC in chromium builds for #Fedora.
@tn5421 @setthemfree Can you find the code for their build? Something like https://src.fedoraproject.org/rpms/chromium/blob/acf081f1d3990da5dccc231dd57c1b65b30bf560/f/chromium.spec
@yegorpetrov Tor itself does nothing to help here, though, does it? The Tor Browser is just Firefox, which doesn't have the problem in the first place.
You can run Chrome over Tor, and still be tracked.
@WAHa_06x36 alright. But I was saying that in this case it’s much more safer to use tor instead of chrome
Number one rule of a safe psychological experiment:
You tell people they are being experimented on.
Hell, I didn't need to be told.
When Chrome was first released, the fact that it was made by Google made me follow King Arthur's advice and RUN AWAAAYYYYY.
@setthemfree AFAIK, it seems like the trial is highly reliant on Google services, and they mention that the trial is enabled if you have Chrome Sync on (which I'm pretty sure is now forbidden for use on any third-party Chromium browsers), so I don't think certain Chromium-based browsers (Vivaldi, Edge, Opera, Brave) are likely to be affected. Correct me if I am wrong.
@setthemfree (The worrying part is that some code may still be left over, which means that they could be affected after all...)

firefox isn't a single bit better than chromium. research, it's all shit. mozilla corp is for profit and owned by same people on the end.
our only choice are forks now
and recently I found
FireDragon Librewolf fork 🐉https://forum.garudalinux.org/t/firedragon-librewolf-fork/5018
@akeno @jeremiah @Tim @setthemfree @fcgreg Changing circuits gives "Error: IP in X-Forwarded-For header is blocked: 220.127.116.11". Also, that msg is in the body of the HTTPS-fetched page, so no mitm would be able to insert that error. It must be coming from unixsheikh.com. Not sure what the error msg means.
"I am sorry about this, but I'm currently not self-hosting and my hosting provider blocks an IP address if it has been used in some malicious way (according to them) within a certain amount of time. This is not specific to Tor or VPN services, but in general."
@akeno @fcgreg @setthemfree @Tim @jeremiah i appreciate the explanation. Your hosting provider is bullshitting you. They blanket block all Tor IPs at all times. No matter when I check, it's always blocked, even if I try different exit nodes. Even more obnoxious: they also block archive.org, so Tor users are also blocked from seeing a mirror of the site. So I can't see that faq link you just sent either.
@akeno @jeremiah @Tim @setthemfree @fcgreg A VPN is far less anonymous than Tor. It's naive to think a VPN service doesn't see both sides of the route +fingerprinting. "deploy your own" is even more foolish, as the other endpoint is no less yours than your origin. It's also a pushover move to access the website over a VPN-- you are dancing for an oppressor, bending over backwards to help them get your attention. Fuck that.
@setthemfree why is nobody using hardened Firefox (although, fuck Mozilla, that's a valid excuse. they suck)
