Websites can write to Chrome’s clipboard without user permission

> something is wrong with them

Start with a solid argument, I see.

> the code has essentially become a mini-bone

Well yes, Chrome OS is a thing. That being said, all current browser codebases are the size of operating systems.

> also a monopoly

Where did Safari and Firefox go all of a sudden?

> and there is way too much going on with JavaScript

Both good and bad, the web would be a worse and much less interactive place without JS. Without JS, we’d be stuck with the 1995 web.

> security issues

As you said yourself, the codebase is the size of an operating system, so no surprises.

> bugs, etc constantly corrected

…Which is a good thing.

> too popular

It’s not a thing. People use what they want to use. Too bad for you that it’s not Deplatformingfox.

> Some people actually think chromium browsers offer the best security

It’s not about “belief”, mate. Belief belongs to the domain of religion.

That Chromium has a solid sandbox and real site isolation is not a “belief”, it’s a verifiable fact via open source code.

> Firefox, far from the security problems of browsers like Chrome

Yeah, because that’s not a valid target with 3% market share. Not because it’s well-designed (which it isn’t, that’s rubbish).

> Firefox, is far from the security issues of browsers like Chrome, Edge, Brave and Vivaldi.

Because no one uses it.

> Which browser is the safest to use? Firefox is!

Lol no. You can’t have it both ways. You claim that Firefox is secure because of its inadequacy (which is a shoddy argument in itself, but hey, let’s get to it), but when more people start using it, it will become a more attractive target for pirates, invalidating the mismatch factor.

> Firefox is the only FOSS browser maintained by well-paid developers

Obviously false. Chromium is open source. WebKit too. And Deplatformingfox developers are actually paid by Google.

> Google chrome is a proprietary browser where an ad tech company bloats the code.

So what? Chrome is just a closed source variant of Chromium, which is open source. What about ad tech? Where do you think Mozzarella’s money comes from? Did I miss the part where Mozzarella publicly spoke out against the ads?

> No thanks. Firefox is much safer.

Nice announcement. Want a job in the ad tech industry?

The quality of gHacks posts has deteriorated since they said goodbye to factual arguments for the most part.
