Hi Hutch,
I could not find your address to send this message privately.
I am an old member of Masm32 from the USA.
Thank you for the Masm forum.
I'm getting kind of old and can not keep up with things
like I used to. Thought you might help me with a little
I am sure you are aware of the stunts that Google is pulling
these days. Like all big companies they change things without
giving folks the option to NOT accept them. Shades of Microsoft's
behavior. I like Gmail and it doesn't seem to be giving me any
AS much trouble that replacing GOOGLE is going to cause me, I wondered
if you would be kind enough to advise me as to another browser. One
that I can import my goodies from Google to that browser. Many years
ago I have used FireFox and didn't like it. I need some help with
picking a decent BROWSER so I won't have to browser hop to find one
that doesn't screw its users.
If you have to time I would appreciate your help.
Jack Shankle

The new Firefox - (
Meet Firefox Quantum.
Fast for good.
Download Firefox — English (US)

As much as Quantum is a new and improved version of Firefox, it is still, at its heart, the classic Firefox. That means you’re never going to have quite the same level of Google integration you get from Chrome, though you can import your Chrome settings and bookmarks flawlessly. For some people, that alone is what matters.

If that doesn’t bother you or you’re more interested in a private browsing experience, Firefox Quantum offers the most secure online browsing experience of the big options right now. It feels fast and performs well in simple benchmarks and with its own robust set of add-ons, there’s nothing we’ve come across that other browsers can do that Firefox Quantum can’t.

With that in mind, we think Firefox Quantum is definitely worth a look if you’re a little tired of Chrome, Edge, or Safari. It’s certainly a comparable experience to any of them, and is noticeably better in some areas. If you still aren’t convinced, here’s one last benefit of choosing Quantum: There is always an inherent advantage of less popular browsers since malware authors tend to write viruses for the most common software. That’s an added level of security that Firefox probably won’t be advertising anytime soon.

My choice is Slimjet, either the 32 or 64 bit portable version, works like Chrome but without the Google telemetry (spyware).

Thank you Hutch,
I am now using Slimjet and it is working fine.
I left Google on the computer but now never use it.
Don't know if I should get rid of it or if removing it
will effect Slimjet
