Is your browser tracking you? Brave and Mozilla Firefox offer privacy solutions
What browser do you use? Depending on your browser choice, websites may be tracking you wherever you go online. Popular websites can include up to 24 pieces of tracking content from companies such as Facebook and Google. In the fight for Internet security, both Brave and Mozilla Firefox offer free to use solutions. We go over some of the benefits of both browsers.
Gone are the days of making jokes about Internet Explorer. The recent browser war is primarily dominated by Google Chrome. According to statcounter, Google Chrome accounts for a worldwide market share of 64.92%.
However, despite Chrome’s widespread usage, other browsers are more focused on digital privacy.
In the battle of the browsers, what do people care about the most? A 2019 survey by Brave Software revealed that users have become more aware of data tracking and online privacy, and are looking for a browser to reflect this. Brave Software states: “82 percent of users wish the Web were more privacy-oriented and 79 percent of users worry about their privacy on the Web at least occasionally.”
Luckily, there are options available. Let’s take a look at Brave and Firefox, two browsers that aim to do better than Chrome in the privacy department.
