Mozzilla Firefox is your Internet Knight Use it NOW !

Human-like routines !!!!!

And it’s a little disappointing to see how much people don’t care about their data and activities on the Internet, or maybe they care but don’t realize how much they depend to do things usually. People love their browser and don’t want to change from Google Chrome is so modern but it’s time to do it and now!

Google Chrome is now your favorite browser 64.3%. of market share in November 2019.

Ok that a fact in 2019, but some people certainly remember they used IE for more than a decade… I agree that Google Chrome is a great and powerful browser.

I used Google Chrome at the time where everybody was on IE, more than 10 years ago, it’s a fast browser, the password manager and sync services between devices are just great but exist on Firefox too, Chrome can autofill my signups and forms but Firefox too, Chrome is really more than a browser feel like a mini operating system in itself, but all this eco-system is really free?

You don’t have to Pay for using Google Chrome but yes you are paying by every utilization you made you pay with your personal data, they are spying, snooping and stalking you.

Google is not reading your email don’t be afraid, Google is very trustworthy with your data. It uses all your data to serve you ads and nothing else. It handles your information in a very professional manner.

The data is stored securely and only computers access it to determine what kind of ads are more suitable for you.

Just one question to ask yourself “do I want Google to have my data ?” even trustworthy they are there’s proven records that this data can be used in different ways than you could expect the Facebook-Cambridge Analytica scandal and the attack on Facebook in September 2018 left 300,000 and 50 million users vulnerable respectively.

And our own Google Plus social network has admitted of a flaw that exposed 500,000 users to third party.

What does Google keep of you?

You will find the privacy notices about Chrome, and what its browser sends back home, is a very public document.

Here are some highlights, and explanation:

The fact of using Google Chrome is that your gateway to the Internet is also Google’s gateway to your private data. The pages you visit, your searches, the time you spend on particular sites, everything is sent to Google. Even when Google does everything to protect your information, it still puts you in a very vulnerable position.

If you have Instant enabled in your settings or from the about: flags section, we can assume that every character you enter in the address bar of Chrome is sent, scanned and returned, but “Instant Search” is not enabled by default, I’m on, you were scared

Bookmarks and other synchronization data: Like your Gmail, Docs and other personal effects, Google keeps the data you want to synchronize between browsers on its own servers, but promises to be a “manager” of this data, as indicated in their general political confidentiality.

• Crash reports and usage statistics, if enabled: If you checked a box during installation, or in your settings, to give Google notes and details on Chrome and how you use it, here’s the kind of thing you’re allowing them to have a peek at:

How do you protect yourself?

I’ve been really surprised by some discussions with IT professionals and responsible for large companies and their view and understanding related to opensource privacy and really shocked by the word used, the imagination around opensource.
A major party of the security tools or products developed for security purpose are based on Linux that is an overall opensource OS.

So why you have to choose Firefox why you have to support and help the Mozzilla foundation that is a non-profit organization, simply because there are not collecting your information to resell it to the ads, by the way, we should pay them a monthly fee for protecting us from this.

Your first step to the liberty for surfing on the web is to use and abuse of Firefox.

If you read me a bit you know that I am supporting the open-source project like Mozilla Firefox, the code is accessible on Github and you can have a look at it and see how it works and what exactly it does.

Mozilla Firefox respects your privacy and your internet browsing does not send your private info to its servers or any third-party partners. It sends some statistical data which is non-intrusive, anonymous and is used only to improve Firefox.

By default, Firefox is enabling a panoply of features like Tracking protection to make sure that websites do not track your online activities across multiple sites, something that Facebook does very intrusively.

Related to Facebook you can have an adds called Facebook container that will protect yourself from Facebook tracking you on the internet.

HttpsEverywhere, uBlock Origins and Privacy Badger are some extensions that improves your security on the Internet.

Protect the Web

Mozilla starts in 2011 a nice project called Firefox OS, unfortunately, and certainly due to a lake of marketing the opensource free mobile OS disappears it continue to exist under the name B2G OS.
This is the type of project us “human” we should definitely support and again I don’t understand why people are not interested to use this type of product developed in a way to protect them.

You don’t want to be tracked SO Use the Firefox browser, support the opensource project that here to help you and protect your personal information on the web.

Last but not Least Firefox beats Chrome, yes it does!

Firefox last version is beating chrome in certain areas but is a little slower than Chrome on load times we are discussing of milliseconds, damn, in another term, you will never see it we are discussing of 2 or less millisecond.

Chrome is eating your system memory, what happens when memory became hard to release for a system, is swapping, and here your performance will decrease as fast as possible, Firefox consumes 30% less memory that will let your system running well.

You will find benchmark comparisons of the browser, make sure that the best way to test and check the responsiveness of the launch speed of a browser is to use it and do not rely on a pseudo-test often performed with a hidden marketing intention.

Firefox has an improved engine which very effectively addresses this issue. Firefox consumes 30% less RAM than Chrome. This means that you enjoy a much more responsive web interaction and a better overall web browsing.
