I used to solely use Chrome.  It was my favorite brower.  Until I noticed it was sharing out my cookies and cache to other sites.  I started to notice that sites I went to or items I clicked on were showing up in Ads on other sites.  For example I looked at 3 or 4 different MicroSD cards on Newegg and noticed those same exact models would show up on Facebook Ads for NewEgg.  I cicked on a Gmail add once for Orb speakers and saw that popup on a Guru3D add.  I tried to stop this with Chrome but you have very few security options with it and few security Add-ons.  I swapped to Firefox which I was easily able to stop all the Ad sharing without having to totally stop using cookies or Java.
