Yes, but sadly, very often when Canadian TV develops something good, we Canadians don' t support it, and the producers go south for the money.
Too bad.
Each and every time, the "original" Canadian show becomes a Hollywood "shoot-em-up" "car chase" fiasco.
Excuse the bitterness.

Key there is "don't think" because will never be able to know for sure,
aside from getting a job at NSA/CIA, or GCHQ/MI5 for uk, or similar in other countries

That is just so funny on so many levels

Can you clarify this? I'm still new to a lot of this security stuff.

But I'm also really likin' this browser, regardless of political-data-privacy-stuff

no i can't, sorry.

i still wonder if the comparison to chrome is a case of
"from the frying pan into the fire"
or
"from the frying pan into another frying pan"
or
"from the frying pan into another, slightly smaller frying pan"
...

Probably "from the frying pan into another frying pan".

Anyway, IMO, we're being surveilled from the very moment we connect to the WWW, no matter how many actions we take to avoid it. Of course, people can choose what websites they use and the amount of information they share online, but your IP identifies you to your country's authorities anyway, so if they want to know your browsing habits and your interests/political views based on them, they will do it (and I'm fairly sure this happens in "big democracies" such as the US).
