For those who haven't seen, if you're using Chromium or a Chromium-based browser (with a few exceptions), starting in March you won't be able to sync your stuff with Google anymore... https://www.zdnet.com/article/google-cuts-off-other-chromium-based-browsers-from-its-sync-service/

This includes, ironically, the Chromium builds that are included with many Linux distributions: https://www.zdnet.com/article/linux-distributors-frustrated-by-googles-new-chromium-web-browser-restrictions/

This doesn't affect me much because I don't use Chrome much because of Google's privacy tactics. I do use Vivaldi but don't need to sync my bookmarks.

Oldiesmann

Vivaldi isn't affected by this. They have their own syncing service.

Cool! I really like that browser, especially the grouped tabs and that you can name them. It makes things a lot easier.

Oldiesmann

Grouped Tabs is available in Chrome now as well. Haven't played around with it much yet but definitely something I can see coming in handy for my work on SecondHandSongs (where I can sometimes have 5 or 6 related tabs open at once)

I use Chrome, but that is a sucky move.

Whats all this about grouped tabs? That's something new to me?
What is it/how does it work/ demo?
Does Edge have it too?
I reject your reality, and substitute my own.
