I have taken the time to read the Board Guidelines (https://archive.arisuchan.jp/infornography.php#guidelines
) and under "Please use a browser that respects your privacy and security" it says that "Google Chrome is literally a botnet".
After a bit of digging I was unable to find trustworthy information that confirms this. Sure, Chrome wants the ability to auto-update itself whenever it likes without any action by the user, is not fully open source and is made by Google, one of the biggest companies in the world. But having the ability to be a botnet doesn't mean that it actually is a botnet.
Can you give me a source on this?
I should add that I personally use Firefox, Google already has way too much data about me. I do not want to add even more by using their browser.
