Manifest V3 is coming to Chrome which means that ad blockers like UBlock Origin and Privacy Badger will stop working or be greatly reduced in functionality. This is good for Google as it continues to try and race blocking technologies with it’s tracker technologies, with V3 it loaded the deck so that it’s no longer an arms race, it’s a set of little fleas trying to take a small nibble from a huge giant.

I currently use Chrome for work because if the profiles it allows me to change between, but Firefox added profiles so I’ll be moving everything over to Firefox going forward.

Around the house, we already block a bunch of trackers at the network level due to how I have my routers set, but I’ll still have a talk with my wife about getting away from Chrome. The kids really only use their iPad/iPhone so they’re on Safari.
