Google gets its way, bakes a user-tracking ad platform directly into Chrome

The will keep coming
gets its way, bakes a user-tracking ad platform directly into
Chrome now directly tracks users, generates a "topic" list it shares with advertisers.

You will have seen a popup at some point if you are still using Chrome telling you that they want to enroll you in their privacy-preserving plan.

Treat the idea with the scorn it deserves. They are in fact trying to get you to agree to their tracking program.

You'll probably be using Firefox already if you care about that kind of thing though I guess.

I have Tor, but it isn't suitable for all things. Neither is FF Klar/Focus and IceCat. I found that Chrome was required for boarding passes for Westjet. It is in Insular (FOSS version of Island- isolated from all apps). So we make do with imperfect combinations. I also recommend Blokada from F-droid. No ads on android and blocked 200k trackers in a year.

Another reason why we should stop using Google Chrome: They launched their advertisement Topics API:

There are better alternatives out there! If you want something Chromium-based:

- Ungoogled Chromium (): Basically Chrome without all the Google Bullsh1t

While the "Ad Privacy" pop-up does ask whether you want to enable the "Ad topics" feature or not, it is not obvious that it enables 2/3 of the options regardless of your first selection. You must manually go to the settings and disable the 2 other tracking features yourself, there is no direct button to opt-out. Most users will easily miss this.

This, of course, is by design to ensure that the feature will get traction and ensure Google's continued ad revenue. We're well past "don't be evil".

When travelling using my ICE vehicle, I'm tracked by government ANPR cameras, my mobile phone provider, and by my bank as I make purchases along the way. The vehicle itself has no direct contact with its manufacturer.

I'm aware that this is not the case with Tesla EVs which are in frequent communication with their maker.

Which, if any, brands of EV have similar levels of privacy to ICE, with no contact with the factory
