Sometimes I wonder if Electron (it's ease of use + horrible memory resource issues) is really just a ploy to drive users to running apps in browser tabs, all to benefit ChromeBooks and ChromeOS. #conspiracytheory
If you use Chrome, Google can use a network protocol for tracking and ad delivery that can't be seen or blocked by extensions. TL;DR: You really shouldn't use a web browser made by an ad company.
"AdBlock Plus, uBlock Origin, and other extensions cannot block QUIC requests. Recommended best practice is to disable QUIC from the chrome://flags/ URL."
In either situation I suppose it boils down to what I believe are altruistic benefits vs. my distrust for the cultural systems that exploit that for personal gain.
I'm also completely torn between wanting complete privacy and believing that aggregating people's data can contribute to societal good.
