Study ranks the privacy of major browsers. Here are the findings

Upstart Brave browser gets the highest ratings. Chrome, Firefox and Safari fall between.

Microsoft Edge received the lowest privacy rating in a recently published study that compared the user information collected by major browsers. Yandex, the less-popular browser developed by the Russian Web search provider Yandex, shared that dubious distinction. Brave, the upstart browser that makes privacy a priority, ranked the highest.

Brave files GDPR complaint against Google 

Brave has filed a GDPR complaint v Google for infringing the GDPR “purpose limitation” principle. Enforcement would be tantamount to a functional separation of Google’s business.

The purpose limitation principle requires that organizations must scrupulously ring fence data for specific purposes. These purposes must be made clear, and be very specific. However, Google’s purposes are so vaguely defined as to have no meaning or limit. The result is an internal data free-for-all that infringes the GDPR’s purpose limitation principle.

Brave to generate random browser fingerprints to preserve user privacy

“Brave’s new approach aims to make every browser look completely unique, both between websites and between browsing sessions.”

The Brave browser is working on a feature that will randomize its “fingerprint” every time a user visits a website in an attempt to preserve the user’s privacy. Brave’s decision comes as online advertisers and analytics firms are moving away from tracking users via cookies to using fingerprints.
