    How about something useful, like hardware accelerated video on Chrome, like the one they had and self-sabotaged it? Oh right, you want us to buy a Chromebook for that, never mind.

      Without hardware accelerated video, every Chromium-based browser is a no-go.

        Oooh, yeah, sounds like fun, especially on top of today's big googly news:
        "The United States government has reportedly been issuing secret “keyword warrants” to Google for those who look up certain phrases and names, triggering worry over privacy in addition to concern for innocent internet users, who could unknowingly and erroneously become involved in major criminal investigations. The controversial practice, used in secret to search for criminals for years, was revealed on Tuesday in “accidentally unsealed” court documents" https://www.msn.com/en-us/money/othe...ses/ar-AAPd2E0
        Yes, we need a browser and a search engine that collects all our online activity so that federal law enforcement can dig through it like digging through a trash dumpster to create crimes to charge us with.

          That's why Firefox might be more suitable for u.

            I think this is not only browsers, but services. You can have the most airtight browser, but if the server you are interacting with is compromised, all your security falls apart. And today is very hard to not use something from the big providers. And if you do, you are locking yourself out of a lot useful stuff.

            And forget VPNs, those were exposed as fake privacy a while ago.

              I don't see how. Where is the source for that?

                Seriously?! Just about every high-profile VPN has indeed been exposed as logging everything that passes through it, as a starting point. @ddg for any of a dozen stories on the topic in the last year or so.

                  It seems that Hardware Video Acceleration is fixed under current Ozone x11 in Chrome 96. (tested with raw built chromium 96 )

                    Remember that starting 2022, Chrome Web Store only lets publish Manifest V3 extensions, that kills AdBlocks and many other extensions.
