Attempt to Curry Flavour Ahead of Supreme Court Ruling ?

Now the Scrotus is hanging on the republican side, and republicans running scared of their Dictator-In-Chief, this seem like the most logical thing Larry could do.

Let's see if this is to followed up by some of the turmeric man's tweets. After all, Larry is a great American and not nasty at all unlike Google who are run by some foreign sounding/looking guy... I mean, is he even legally in the USA ?

Firefox + Ghostery vs Brave Browser

Just tried brave browser on Linux.

Brave: Version 0.65.121 Chromium: 75.0.3770.100 (Official Build) (64-bit)

FireFox: Version 67.0.4 Ghostery 8.3.4

Linux: Ubuntu: 19.04 with kernel 5.1.3-050103-generic

On the sites I tried, Firefox was faster and more trackers were blocked (less requests were made).

Love Rust though.
