Many people that are concerned with privacy issues avoid using Google products.

I suggest you use Firefox as it appears to care very much about privacy issues.

What are these privacy issues?



No, they don't. There are some plugins like that Java one that have security issues, but most of them are fine.
Any extra code that you attach, gives an additional chance at security issues. Especially if you install an addon that the developer is no longer actively supporting, you might end up with issues that aren't even known until something goes wrong.

On the other hand, they are just so useful, so people use them anyway.

I find firefox slow, just looking for a fast alternative...

I just feel like I am helping kill freedom by giving in.

Yea, but do not use any plugin. Plugins harms the privacy.
So Chromium based browsers don't collect and send info to Google.

That's why I'm thinking of migrating all my mail from Gmail to Outlook.

It doesn't matter what browser your using or any added security feature you may use , if the powers that be in your country want to know anything about you they have access at the drop of a hat... But 99.9% of law abiding people need not worry, ever.. eMails or sites visited are ALL kept in logs by your ISP... Well here in the UK that is the law , cant speak for other countries...

And as far as I am aware all browsers use cookies , those cookies report back where and when you were looking at what & when...

Suggestion :
Go for a browser you feel comfortable with or maybe 2 or 3 of them... each have a different niche ..

I use Comodo Dragon , Torche both Chrome based & Comodo Ice Dragon Firefox based..
