The following is a compact and easy to understand list that shows alternate and preferably open-source software for privacy conscious persons, to mitigate the amount of personal information collected by corporations.
AVOID USING GOOGLE CHROME
Google makes billions of dollars a year off of targeted advertising.
Additionally, Google LLC is liable to hand over, and has been handing over personal internet data to the NSA, according to the PRISM Act , which forces internet companies to hand over personal data.
Instead use these :
A vastly customizable browser with tracker protection and ad blocking. Don't forget these config tweaks.
An open source Chromium fork, with built-in adblocking and various other privacy improvements, like support for DNS-over HTTPS and others found here.
A chromium based, open-source browser with various privacy enhancements. Disables some Google services and telemetry, and also deletes all site data after exit.
Web extensions that add additional privacy.
