Another question if I may please. I am wondering if there are any apps available to convert other languages to English. Maybe with an on-demand access button to convert whole pages (url). I see many such apps on Google, most if not all are for only selected text. I don`t want to go clicking willy--nilly and pickup a bad thing....On-line converting scares me....Thanks,,,Much appreciated any and all advice....jim

Hehe well chrome tracking for adverting purposes as everyone else ;) 

Google is still the best search engine in the world regardless what the review says.

The most useful in chrome is the account, once created you can use your personal settings on any computer.

The only think you need to do is set additional security with text messages. 

Regarding personal information I believe everyone was registered at lest once in social media as FB and etc.

So whatever you use you will never achieve full privacy on internet :)

Yep,,,I believe you are spot on. Wish I could remember what issues I (thought) :) I might have had with Chrome. Probably self inflicted. Maybe try again,, Thank you for your reply/advice...Jim

No you were right,Chrome tracks you extensively..if thats not an issue for you go ahead and use it...if it is,use one of the Chrome derivitives that have the same functionality but without the tracking..link below.(Better browser IMO)

 

https://www.chromium.org/getting-involved/download-chromium

 

Afterthought,just noticed an addon for Firefox also

 

https://addons.mozilla.org/en-gb/firefox/addon/s3google-translator/?src=cb-dl-featured

 

Google is still the best search engine in the world regardless what the review says.

 

Well it is if you think the no of hits is the main criteria..which it gets for sure..it does track you mercilessly,what i tend to do is use Startpage (gives you filtered Google results,but doesnt track you at all,nd go to Google if i get the need for absolute max no of hits on something.

Yes,think your right,a lot of people dont realise that you sign up for .ning site or similar and that can  automatically gets you an FBI dossier.

Imaging doing that as an agent...you,d be thinking,God i signed up thinking id be in Mission imposible nd here i am lookin at facebook all day.:-)

Why use a third party website when you could go directly to Google Translate?
