Ya I feel is Google or YouTube are pushing ads even MORE than ever before then they NEED to be on top of the scam ones to not let people fall victim to them. The whole reason I have my parents use AdBlock programs is for the sole purpose of protecting them from falling for scams and scareware and fake alerts.

I was checking out browser security and came across this which I found interesting just how much your browser can tell about what you do.

I got a little different info.  For cover your tracks, my FF says it's strong and says it's 64-bit.  But Edge says it's weak on ads and trackers and strong on fingerprinting.  But thinks it's 32-bit when the browser is using the 64-bit version..

The privacy one thinks I'm using a 32-bit laptop.  I guess it can see my battery backup?

And just when you thought that reformatting your hard drive would save you from a nasty virus, think again.

What is crazy is how persistent Microsoft is with forcing users to use a Microsoft account with Windows 11.  When news gets out about how to get around that so users can create a local account, Microsoft patches that trick too.

Ya I think more and more people will move to other OS at this rate. Just how far can MS push its users?

If you can find the current statistics, you'll find that a lot of users have abandoned Windows 11 and most of them have gone back to Windows 10.

MS won't be put off by that. Look what they did to get people to leave Windows 7 behind.

And they will do it to Windows 10 users too once Windows 12 comes out.  It's a predictable cycle the MS has done time and time again.
