This is hot off the press from computerworlduk.  Again, Peppermint gets it right! ;)

Best browsers for privacy

By Christina Mercer for computerworlduk

Quote
For most users, Firefox checks all the boxes. While it is by no means airtight (nothing is), you can build it out with enough protections in place to minimise intrusions to your browsing and so Firefox and the stripped down Firefox Quantum gets our vote. -- Christina Mercer

What are the specs on the Compaq? I used to love Compaq computers.

No, you can't turn people off of Windows, they have to come of their own accord. Hell, even I use Windows sometimes, mostly for certain games.

I sleep until 7am on Sundays, which for me, is like sleeping in.

I get off work at 7AM. Not on Sundays, though, because I don't work Saturday nights. ;)

I'm not a fan of electron apps (massive/slow), or appimages/snaps/flatpaks, or Chromium based browsers for that matter .. so I'm afraid Beaker is unlikely to be my cup of tea, no matter how interesting the concept.

Dunno how to answer this .. you CAN'T just remove everything with "GNOME" in its name because we have some gnome stuff OOTB.
