iMac update to BIG SUR

Lots of things changed, but so far I have sorted out the things I use.

There is a new sign next to the web page, I dont think it was there before, click on and it tells me -

Who are these people ? does anyone know? What does it mean?

Big brother WWW is always tracking your every click. Its what Cambridge Analytica did so well in the run up to the referendum, profiling those most likely to be gammons then targeting them with specific Leave messages. A very powerful tool.

The people who passed off a pair of gloves as *two* items of PPE may not be entirely honest.

All to complicated for me Terry, but it seems its for advertising what your interested in and Netflix to see what I am watching, nothing sinister is there?

Its nothing sinister Jan. Adblockers, browsers etc will constantly try and block trackers and ads if you have them turned on but every click you make something will be trying analyse it, you cant totally escape it and sometimes they can be relevant and useful. Dont worry about it.

I would have expected the program that monitors the trackers to pick up the ACTUAL website you're on, rather than the text on the page. Seems odd to me.

Not with you Jean it is on the web page.
Anyway as has been confirmed, nothing to worry about. I have an add blocker on Safari so that's probably why they are chasing them off.
