Delete Chrome. Now.
Google is using its exceptionally powerful position to make *the browser itself* analyze your browsing behavior and serve that on a plate in the form of "cohorts" to anyone interested.
They are transforming Chrome into a "browsing-history-passport" - right now.
If you care about your intellectual freedom even a little bit, you must put Chrome out of your life as soon as possible. Support others doing the same.
Gumtree (and Facebook Marketplace by extension) is such a mixed bag. I've had some great experiences with it. But lately, some extremely poor ones. Tried to buy several graphics cards, and got an extremely poor response from sellers. I actually went to pick one up and the person didn't show. Today I gave in and bought the thing I wanted from eBay. I think only use it if you have to.
Sometimes you get really good responses from companies when you email them. My email to viewsonic wasn't a win, but they did say they were very sorry to hear about the broken monitor. And I emailed Mailbird about suggesting new features and they said thanks and responded positively. It does help if you carefully word your emails. But it's also great that they do respond, and sympathetically 🙂
