Ten years ago, we needed Google Chrome to break the Web free from corporate hegemony, and we managed to do so for a brief period. Today, its dominance is stifling the very platform it once saved from the clutches of Microsoft. And no one, beside Google, needs that.
I'm really sad to see Microsoft switch to Chromium as the basis for their new Edge browser. The web is getting very homogen and that didn’t turn out to be a good idea in the past. Try Firefox for a free web. I use it since a few years and it got great over time.
