    Do they have strict anti-fingerprinting like Brave?

    Oh wait, no, that would go against Google's core business model. More likely they are implementing "strict fingerprinting".

            all i see is outsourcing or compelling other devs or firms to fix intentional backdoors.

            is it normal to have so many issues about "insufficient policy enforcement"

              If you think that's bad. Wait until you see Chrome on Windows. https://www.reddit.com/r/chrome/comm..._and_why_does/

              Google is scanning ALL THE FILES on your computer. Not only Chrome or Windows files. Heck not even just the main drive. It scans everything that the system can access. Well that sounds a lot like spyware/malware... a program that installs another program on your computer that you do not know about and runs without being told to run. Google Chrome does exactly that and yet nobody is freaking out about it. No official posts about it from Google. Just a silent backend process that's enabled by default. https://www.reddit.com/r/chrome/comm...tool_scanning/

              We know that Microsoft have been pulling this crap since Windows 10 telemetry was introduced (automatic upload of files to Microsoft cloud), but Google via an app not an OS. What the **** Sundar Pichai???

                ^^^ Even more reason to use Firefox, seriously guys, there's no excuse. Firefox is just way better. Ignore the benchmarks on this one.

                  The Shared Element Transitions API is cool but I'm waiting for the Shared Telescope API which will allow devs gazing at the stars.

                    That makes me glad that, when I need Chrome, I'm running Ungoogled Chromium in Incognito Mode in Flatpak with manually narrowed permissions so it can only see its own downloads folder, separate from those used by things like my Flatpak'd copies of Deluge and JDownloader. Amnesia and blindness to the greatest feasible extent by default.
