comment What are the benefits of using a proxy?
-1 The proxy hardly prevents sites from putting files on your computer. Cached content and cookies can still be stored on your computer regardless of whether a proxy is in use or not. Further, your language suggests proxies are inherently encrypted and secure which is a Massive (false) assumption.

comment How to revert Google Chrome context menu back to Windows style
-1 - Why would you recommend a user revert to an older release which is potentially vulnerable, given Chrome's regular security updates? Further, Chrome auto-updates and you've made no mention of how to disable that so anyone following your suggestion would have a current browser almost immediately anyway.
