can't you just use google without logging in? meaning the most google can see is your ip?
Well, according to the tweet in OP, which had this screenshot:
you can use it without logging in but i'm sure they can still track you. not as well but i reckon it's still possible.
I’ve had some experience with dual boot in the past and I had some trouble with Grub (I think this is the name). Maybe a VM would be nice. I have a laptop with a Ryzen 7 and 8gigs of ram.
Most of the generic information about your device is easily know by ALL apps you use; What phone model, computer model, phone specs, computer specs, etc. This isn't so harmful as the apps just use this information to make the app experience the best they can on your device.
I wouldn't recommend using DDG browser, but would recommend if you really want to try it DuckDuckGo; Download Brave Browser for iOS and set DuckDuckGo to your default search engine, you will get the better usability via Brave Browser (Which is secure itself) plus the extra security of your searches not being indexed by Google.Having used DDG browser on iOS for a couple days, it has weird behaviour on GAF and I don’t think I can keep using it long term. It likes to hold the scroll bar position across page changes, so if I click to go to page 2 of a thread it stays at the bottom of the page instead of scrolling to the top.
It has the same bad gif behaviour that Firefox does, which is to say it loops the first few frames about 5 times before running through the whole thing and doesn’t always finish before I starts again.
It also doesn’t have a reader, which is something I quite like using these days.
I'm quite glad that you were embarrassed to be using Edge, because I was also very embarrassed for youI'm only using DDG serch engine, and ... Edge... (I think Edge chromium is great...) for the last 2 years and I rediscovered what I loved about internet, I can make a search and from there space on different stuff, with google everything ended up always inthe same argument or group of sites, I like to learn new stuff and having a not tailored search engine was the best choice I could have done.
I've tried Brave in the past, but I can't remember what made me stop using it. I'm really fussy with browsers, but there aren't too many viable options on iOS. I'll probably give it another go, but so far Safari is the only one that can manage GIFs on GAF correctly. At least Safari blocks more by default these days, even if iOS browsers don't have the customisation features that I'd hope for in a browser (see above).I wouldn't recommend using DDG browser, but would recommend if you really want to try it DuckDuckGo; Download Brave Browser for iOS and set DuckDuckGo to your default search engine, you will get the better usability via Brave Browser (Which is secure itself) plus the extra security of your searches not being indexed by Google.
