Reducing the dispersion of the personal data when using a web browser

A browser should be a very simple tool, just a way to access the web. In recent years, however, in some cases, it has become a tool for doing a lot of different things (like a small operating system) and also for analyzing personal preferences.

Google built Chrome for these purposes. Years ago, Google realized that the browser is the window on the world, an opportunity to monitor the navigation directly from the access point, an opportunity to know what people like and what does not. The big chance to collect data from users all over the world.

My browser is Firefox because it takes care of my privacy, it’s opensource and it’s ahead in technology. You should use it too.

Sometimes I need WebKit, the rendering engine behind Chrome. So, if I need it, I use Brave. Its interface is pretty similar to Chrome but there is no telemetry installed to analyze things like which sites I visited or which video I watched.

Brave is an innovative browser because it is part of a project that attempts to revolutionize advertising on the web by eliminating intermediaries and centralization. In addition, it integrates a Tor browser, a tool that allows an extremely high level of anonymity when used properly. If you want to start resuming your data, I would say that you can change your browser in a few seconds.

I have also started a new project at home: a Pi-Hole. It stops tracking and malicious DNS, also advertising. The first I tested it on an old Raspberry Pi, the second I moved it on a LXC container on a ProxMox hypervisor, but this is another story for another article.
