    Be careful with modern browsers if you seek privacy. Turns out that most browsers share 10,000 properties about the environment where they run and will give it up for the asking.

    Privacy on the internet is really hard and without privacy, security is hard too. Without security, privacy is hard.

    I'm one of those that are addicted to the modern browser (FF). So I guest doing what I can will not put a big dent in browser privacy, but I do feel more secure.

    I started using containers

    Seems like good practice.

    I think this to be a better choice for me.

    My default for Java is disabled, using a plugin for convenience.

    Won't play nice with noscript. Java global settings are not available.
