If anyone is still holding out, Firefox is really good these days and has a lot of amazing privacy features built-in
A switch has silently been flipped in millions of instances of Google Chrome: those browsers will begin sorting their users into groups based on behavior, then sharing group labels with third-party trackers and advertisers around the web. eff.org/deeplinks/2021/03/go…

I'm quite impressed with how well the web works these days with Firefox's HTTPS Only Mode enabled. Like, I don't even noticed it, everything just works

The built-in content blocking also works really well. Even if you set it to Strict, it rarely disrupts anything

While you're at it, it might be worth switching to @DuckDuckGo as your default search engine. I've been using it for a few years and I honestly very rarely fallback to searching Google anymore

i find this to be mostly true also...though today i got caught up because @thehill uses a link shortener that doesnt support https though the actual site does.

I used it for a while but then had to disable it for school because for some reason pythontutor.com redirects you to http regardless of what you do

whats even stranger is that if you do connect via https they've got a certificate, so it's not like the site just doesn't support https they have a certificate and redirect you to http anyways
