Aren't these just the rendering engines?

I don't think they are related to the other parts of the browser that send all your doings to the mothership.

But it does not have that nasty little program. I searched before I posted.

You are welcome.

(Not me mind you. But it could occur to someone with more drones and less self restraint. Just the sort of sortie to launch from some evil lair, for instance.)

Small fry. Needs a larger scale evil scheme.

I only recently started using Chrome some of the time. There are some sites that don't seem to work with IE or Firefox (my long-time main browser.) Given all the bad karma reported, I guess I'll put Chrome in the last resort category again.
EDIT-after Retina commented: The first time I started using Chrome, all the additional files it seemed to be downloading irritated me so much that I terminated it with extreme prejudice. This started with Revo Uninstaller Pro, followed by registry sweeps with jv16 Power Tools, and maybe some other search-and-destroy actions. That may be the best course this time, too.

Or just don't bother with those fussy sites.

If sites want our viewership they should be more compatible and less of a special snowflake.

I use the old EdgeHTML Edge forever. If MS completely removes the UWP Edge in a version of Windows 10, I'll roll back to the previous version immediately.

Been there, done that. Had enough other probs that I changed to Chromium on Linux.

While we're Google-boxing (UK readers take note) I recommend using DuckDuckGo as the default search engine
