    "keeps changing my settings"

    May 2, 2012  |   By kannuc

    Pros

    seems faster than previous versions but ...

    Cons

    changes my home page to MSN on every restart even though I keep changing it back to my custominzed MyYahoo page; on every internet visit (that could be twenty plus times a day) it gives me a pop up asking me to manage my add-ons - have tried adding and taking away - but the useless screen pops up everytime, won't let me go back to a previous version just to get rid of this BS; keeps adding bing search and other similiar stuff, even though I won't use it. I'm moving to another browser

    Summary

    Question is - which browser, don't want to use Chrome for the same reasons I don't use Google, too much tracking so just don't trust them. Have tried Gozilla but its got problems too. So just as I've changed to DuckDuckGo search which gives me google plus others without the tracking, will use a browser that combines others
