Nobody wants anything to do with Google's new tracking mechanism FLoC

Nobody wants anything to do with Google's new tracking mechanism FLoC

Google is about to shake up the status quo on tracking with its newly proposed browser-based Federated Learning of Cohorts (FLoC) tracking mechanism, which it introduced as a replacement for the outgoing third-party cookies the advertisement industry still heavily relies on. But many privacy advocates like the EFF (Electronic Frontier Foundation) and search engine DuckDuckGo think FLoC could turn out to be even worse and more invasive than third-party cookies, and most browser makers were fast to join in on that stance. Almost all of them have vowed or at least hinted that they won't support FLoC in their products, including those based on Google's open-source Chromium rendering engine also used in Chrome.

Microsoft lets you try out Edge's newest features in the Canary build

If you love to live on the bleeding edge of software releases, and also prefer Microsoft's flavor of Chromium browsers to Google's, then I have good news for you.

Pick up a Motorola Edge for just $400 right now

Pick up a Motorola Edge for just $400 right now

Motorola released its flagship Edge+ phone earlier this year, but it was always a bit weird to have a plus model when a regular model didn't exist. Motorola fixed that with the cheaper Edge a few months later, which has now dropped to $399.99 at Amazon and B&H Photo. The phone was $500 for a short time last month (and again on Prime Day), but it's typically sold for $600.

Motorola releases Android 10 kernel source for the Edge+

Motorola returned to the flagship smartphone market earlier this year with the Motorola Edge+. The company still doesn't have the best reputation when it comes to software and updates, but Motorola has just released the kernel source code for the Edge+, making it easier for third-party developers to create their own custom Android builds.

Motorola commits to updating the Edge+ to Android 12 like it should have in the first place

Motorola commits to updating the Edge+ to Android 12 like it should have in the first place

Motorola has expanded the software promise for its latest Edge+ flagship phone. In a statement provided to Droid Life, the company has committed to providing "at least two Android OS upgrades" for the $1,000 phone. (You might have expected that to be a given when you drop a grand, but welcome to Motorola.) Given that it ships with Android 10, that means Motorola has now committed to updating the Edge+ to Android 12 someday.

Motorola Edge+ renders show off waterfall display and triple-camera array (Updated)

Motorola Edge+ renders show off waterfall display and triple-camera array (Updated)

Ever since Google sold Motorola to Lenovo, the brand's strategy has been subject to change. In the past, there were only three model lines, but now, it's hard to discern the plethora of often all-too-similar phones released under the Moto name. There also hasn't been a proper flagship for a while, but Motorola is apparently looking to change that. OnLeaks and Pricebaba have teamed up to share renders and specifications of an alleged Motorola Edge+, and it could shape up to be the brand's new front runner.

Microsoft is giving some Edge features back to Chrome

Microsoft is giving some Edge features back to Chrome

In late 2018, Microsoft finally gave up on its in-house browser engine for desktops, moving its Edge browser over to the now nearly ubiquitous Chromium: The basis of Chrome. The first releases landed a bit under a year ago, and now some of Microsoft's changes to Chromium are percolating upstream — that's a developer way of saying Microsoft is offering some of its tweaks back to Google, and it's integrating them back into Chromium where anyone running Chrome (and any other Chromium-based browsers) will also benefit from them.

With its Edge browser, Microsoft wanted to start with a clean slate and make people forget about Internet Explorer.
