I have used Wireshark for years to snoop my network traffic to see what is bottlenecking or what is trying to phone home that shouldn't be. Great tool. If you haven't used it before, you should download it and give it a spin. It's educational.

Yep, definitely a useful utility. Its sick how Google Chrome handles your browsing history. Even Anti-trackers and Adblockers won't do. Google Chrome is just infested. Brave is the way to go even though it is also a Chromium-based browser but without the internal bloat

I quit using Safari a long time ago and have been using Brave exclusively on all of my devices.

Its thanks to this forum, that I started using Blaze. When I was using Chrome and FIrefox (yes you heard right Firefox), I noticed that it would take longer for YouTube videos to load because the YouTube server constantly tried to send me personalized ads and was never ad-blocker friendly. Also, its been over 20 years and sh!tty Firefox is still a memory hog and freezes intermittently.
