This is a review of the new Arc browser for Windows. I'm interested because I haven't tried Arc yet. The major downside, to me, is that Arc is built on Chromium, which means (because of the influence of Google) that advertising and tracking seep in around the edges (unlike Firefox, which is airtight). The major things, to me: "Arc's claim is that it will help you organize things better. By embedding URLs into a folder for a site, you don't find yourself looking for that extra URL. It's all there. The disappearing current work will make me a better organizer, I suspect. If I don't pin it, I lose it. I learned that lesson!"
