Safe internet browsing
Some recommendations for safe internet browsing.
Use Firefox web browser. Google's Chrome is also good, though Firefox is more customizable.
By blocking up to 30 external sites from loading content into each page you visit, it will reduce the time it takes to load pages and make it harder to track you as you navigate about the web. Try it and be shocked at how many sites track your every page load. Including banking sites!
Also, FlashBlock add-on for Firefox is essential. It stops auto-playing video and audio, replacing them with a triangular "play" button that allows you to start when you're ready. No more surprise loud noises on page loads, including annoying advertisements.
If you're concerned about being tracked on the Internet, you may wish to consider using a search engine that does not track or "bubble" you. For example, Google, while they provide amazing services and have been an upstanding Internet citizen, track every single search you've ever made. And match it against your Gmail profile, phone number and address (if you use their Maps, Navigation, or Android contacts), for example.
DuckDuckGo is an oddly-named but pleasant search engine that does not track you.
