WTF, the Firefox app just sent me a push notification ad that I didn’t opt into (advertising Firefox itself, no less, because clearly everyone who already has Firefox needs to be told about Firefox)!

Anyone know of another decent browser with cross platform (at least desktop Linux and iOS) syncing that isn’t owned by a surveillance/advertising company? Is there even such a thing?

@dale_price There are lots of Chromium-derivatives, but I've found the best approach is to fix Firefox with user.js or whatever, because then you're still supporting alternative browser engines. Going to a Chromium browser just contributes towards Google's monopoly, which nobody wants.
