Angry Chrome didn't ask your permission to spy on you

The Electronic Frontier Foundation (EFF) has a warning about Google's new Spy Addition to Chrome known as FLoC ... and how you may already be secretly Testing it Out for Google!

https://www.eff.org/deeplinks/2021/0...-terrible-idea

In order for you to KNOW if your Chrome is already secretly spying on you ... the EFF has developed a web page called "Am I FLoCed?" at https://amifloced.org/ which checks your Browser for a FLoC ID Code.

Web Site Owners: your site will automatically be included in FLoC calculations if it accesses the FLoC API or if Chrome detects that it serves ads. You can opt out of this calculation by sending the following HTTP response header:

Code:
Permissions-Policy: interest-cohort=()
I Switched from SeaMonkey to Firefox YEARS AGO and Nothing could EVER persuade me to Install Chrome on my system!!!!!
