Re: Chrome scanning your files - Chrome Cleanup Tool

This is why I use Chromium, don't want any surprises, don't get any either and no auto updates from Google, so I can decide when I want to update. Runs on bare essentials and all the browser functionality, without the additional crap from Google.

Re: Chrome scanning your files - Chrome Cleanup Tool

Not present in Chromium, such crap is only added in Chrome by Google.

From their Privacy Whitepaper, the clean up tool is only present on the Windows platform, so all you mac/linux/chromebook users can rest easy.

Re: Items in Local Files Blocked

You could also add a exception domain filter of your own instead of doing a site wide whitelisting, like this -

Adblock itself was bought few years ago by some mysterious buyer, so respecting user privacy is the last thing they will do. https://www.theverge.com/2015/10/2/9441319/adblock-acquisition-unknown-buyer or hand it over to uBO. hahaha, I doubt gorhill would touch that thing even with a 10 ft pole now.

since many will go to it while looking to install uBO
Googling uBlock and the very first result is the Extension/Addon from gorhill, not to mention, uBO's preview wiki page from wikipedia, that's more than enough to let newbies know what's what.

Re: EasyList mirrors - Different expires periods

Is there a reason why expires periods differ?
To NOT overwhelm the servers with rapidfire requests with shorter periods.
