How good is Firefox in terms of privacy? I've read that it has lots of spyware. What's /g/'s opinion on this?

Just use your own user.js

It's been compromised by sjws

Use either https://github.com/intika/Librefox or Firefox with ghacks' or pyllyukko's user.js. Icecat and Waterfox are fine. That site calls 'checking for updates' a botnet, so take it with a grain of salt.

Don't use the neocities website, it's obsolete by several years and is run by an absolute retard.

you can change your user agent, just follow the firefox privacy tips on the archlinux website.
Also, use the privacytools.io tips

What about firefox forks? Well, do they integrate security updates regularly?

Never use chrome. That piece of shit is compromised as hell.

Brave is for faggots.

do Not use privacytools

This guy lists brave as privacy tool meaning he either got payed to do so or is a retard.

>disable the option automatically update the search engines
>some time passes... (a day or a week)
>Amazon and Google in the search engines list again

I even tried to use pyllyukko userjs thinking that there might be an option to counter it but they still come back again... Doesn't anyone have this problem? I really hate this meme browser.

Search engines are updated every browser update.
>>
>>69318064
So what's the point of giving that option?
I don't want Mozilla messing with my search engines wtf
>>
>firefox
What's to stop me from copying a profile from SWIM's computer and logging into all their accounts? Is their a juicier/more compromising target on a computer?
>>
>>69318097
Mozilla makes money with those predefined search engines, so you wont even edit them like in Chromium.
