uBlock Origin, uMatrix, Privacy Badger and Decentraleyes here.

Paranoid? I can't tell you... they're watching me.
If you have uBlock Origin you dont need UMatrix, they overlap :) The other two are great as well and I recommend Facebook container too from Mozilla. Its a shame Chrome browsers don't have the ability to block CNAME-unlock network requests that are a nasty way to track, as Firefox has the correct API to block them with uBlock Origin, not sure about Brave.

I've totally switched to Linux Mint now, not even dual booting anymore, as it all works well for me.

Welcome to the club. I've been exclusively using Linux since about 1996. Some work stuff does require me occasionally to use Windows, but that's a very rare event.

Thanks for that goldberg,

I've totally switched to Linux Mint now, not even dual booting anymore, as it all works well for me.

I'll make a note about VueScan should I ever need it in the future though.

Hi sparky,

Noticed that you reported having a Canon scanner for which there is no longer a W10 driver.

Some years ago Hewlett Packard stopped supporting my scanner.

Then I discovered Vuescan ( https://www.hamrick.com ), and ever since have managed to delay sending yet another item of unsupported hardware to landfill.

Vuescan supports a huge number of scanners including all the main brands and models, is well-supported, and new scanner support is added on a regular basis.

I've been a satisfied user of this product ever since, and can thoroughly recommend it.

Other than personal preference, in your experience, what makes it so much better than other browsers, Den?
its got the speed of chrome without spying of google! the only thing I don't like is lack of ability to email a page/link using your chosen email client(provider)it will only use your Microsoft email addresses or a 3rd party you use to verify your Microsoft credentials,in ie you only had to chose email page or email link to have your chosen client pop up to send message,the share page option in edge is cr*p in comparison,tried sharing a page with myself just to see if it worked,still waiting for page to come to my email addy after 3 weeks!
