I just installed it. Setting it all up now. I wish it had an option to import bookmarks from Opera. There might be some way to do that indirectly. I guess I will look into that tomorrow, but so far I like what I see. I may be switching back to FF. Haven't used it in a while.

Yep, but Google is the type of company that would do that in such a way that nobody knew about it. Like Facebook, they are like ticks. You don't feel them bite you like you would a mosquito. They crawl up under your nut sack or armpit and suck blood (your personal data) out of you, painlessly and without notice. Then they sell it. And make millions per day from it.

I haven't run across too many negatives yet, for FF on computers. The beta version of this new FF for my Android phone has a few functions, or lack thereof, that I'm not too crazy about, but overall I'm pretty pleased and am glad to have switched over from Opera, which I worked ok, but isn't great. Chrome is a great browser, but I try my best to get as far away from anything Google that I can. Now, if the switch to email were easier....... Why did I ever make my main email Gmail, years ago, when the very, very clever evil Google marketing tricks fooled me and drew me into their evil web? Finding a non-tracking, non-invasive email provider, then switching over everything to it is a major PITA.

I long ago came to terms with the fact that Google does and will likely forever know everything about me. As a tech guy in this day and age, I think that is pretty much par for the course.
It is scary that things have become that way. If you use technology, there is no way to avoid those blood-sucking ticks entirely. I just try my best to give them as little as possible.

I never, ever leave the location turned on, on my phone. I use a regular GPS instead, if possible. If I must know my current location and I only have my phone (often in the woods, and rarely on the street), I turn on location, find where I am, then turn it off and figure out how to get where I want to go.

I rarely ever use Google as a search engine, unless I must find something and can't find it with another engine. I refuse to ever again have a Facebook account. All of those ticks are gonna get some info from me, but I make them work for it, and give up as little as feasible. Just like with the IRS. :mrgreen:
