Which internet browser should you use to protect your privacy and personal data, avoiding advertising tracking? The safest would be to surf armed with Tor Browser.
A tweet published by the Framasoft association – which campaigns for free software – drew our attention to the work of the site PrivacyTests.org which performs a benchmark and ranks the main internet browsers on the market on the basis of respect for the privacy of users. The last update dates from October 13 and we see, without possible dispute, the Tor browser dominating all the others on this subject.
Do you want to know which browser allows you to preserve your privacy?

Internet users concerned about respecting their personal data therefore know which browser to install to browse the web, even if other browsers are also emerging. This is the case of Firefox which clearly stands out from Chrome, Edge, Opera and even Brave, knowing that it still improves in this area once the private browsing mode is activated.
Safari doesn’t demerit either, which is hardly surprising considering that Apple has made privacy one of its main marketing arguments. Safari which, for example, is the only one – after Tor – to do well in fingerprinting (name given to this practice which aims to identify devices and users in order to better target them using backdoor methods, such as behavioral measures and habits).
Framasoft finally specifies that if Brave is the only browser to do well in tests evaluating the parameters of tracking requests, this advantage can be called into question by installing an extension that removes the tracking elements of URLs on another browser, such as Firefox. . Brave whose economic and technological model remains, according to Framasoft, too intrusive and worrying.
