I think I will make one change at a time starting with the Ad Blocker, and then tey playing with Chrome.
As to Images I have so many gigs in Picasa, that has the best image processing that I would like to stay with that, and Im uncomfortable with Google Photo having all my images in the cloud somewhere. Unfortunately Google no longer supports Picasa, and does everything possible to drive everything to Google photo, that compresses your images, or you can buy more cloud storage.
Google also terminated Google plus without a replacement or improvement. I cant say that I have confidence in Google for anything archival, that's what SATA arrays are for.
