    Tips for the week:

    In every browser – go into settings, then into privacy and security and check options.  In Edge, review your tracking options.  Do you want to move it to strict?  Do the same for Chrome and Firefox (or whatever browser you use)

    On Edge, check out the settings Here;  In Chrome here; Firefox here.

    What tracking and security are YOU comfortable with?

    (and a kind request – I need 48 more subscribers and then the Youtube channel will have a “normal” url rather than the one it has now.  If you can help me out by subscribing I’d appreciate it)

  • Is Firefox in danger?

    From Zdnet: 

    After looking at the numbers, I really don’t know how long Mozilla can make it. Oh, the revenue stream is there for now, but with fewer and fewer Firefox users can Mozilla count on it tomorrow? The company also had, at the end of 2019,  $785 million in cash and investments. But, with its ever-shrinking market share and vastly smaller development teams, you have to wonder how long Mozilla can keep going with its current leadership and plans.

    Cuts alone of infrastructure and its best developers won’t save Mozilla. And, with Firefox’s ever-shrinking market share, it won’t be able to count on future hundred-million-dollar annual advertising deals to save it. For Mozilla to continue to matter it needs new management and a new strategic plan.


    So?  What browser do you use?  Do you think Firefox is near death?
