Great look at the state of web browsers from T.T. O’Brien:
Why haven’t internet users figured out how much tracking Google and Facebook do these days? Because there’s no visible pain involved in using Chrome, Facebook in Chrome, or Facebook and Chrome on iPhone, iPad, or Android smartphone. In an age where 2-million apps are available to download with little more than a click or two, browsers still rule. That’s wrong.
Browsers are the Corvair of the 21st century. Why hasn’t Ralph Nader turned over in his grave over what today’s browsers hath wrought. Oh. Wait. My bad. He’s not dead. Yet. Maybe he doesn’t use a browser.
Nader is on Facebook.
