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.

@welshpixie but yeah, the european discussion on tech often assumes you can't live without certain things like amazon and alexa, online buying that arrives on the same day, or even getting a new smartphone every year. it's all so alien, and in a sense sounds to me straight up disrespectful of a majority that has no idea what that is.
