    I would like to suggest a backup solution. Both Macrium Reflect or Aomei Backupper have a free and reliable version. ;)

    Try having data backups at least since you might have data. Also try having an adblocker like uBlock Origin.
    I wasn't first :(

    Thanks for the share:)

    Backup is a fundamental part of any secure configuration, it is necessary to save copy of your personal data also on external and offline support.
    Also, creating OS images is a good practice and, as already suggested, Macrium is a very good choice.

    Does the Secure/Caution tag been empirically proven to work for the public's benefit though?

    Hello,
    With Macrium Reflect free, it's easy to make system image with it (fast, images are compressed)
    And for data backup, SyncBackFree is light and full of options.
    I recommend Ublock origin as an adblocker. (light and performant).

    Agreed most of above gurus! Extensions: Pls consider Ublock Origin/Adquard (system wide) + HTTPS-Everywhere + Scriptsafe. About Password manager, it is not needed, if you have very good memory and pen + piece of paper. Otherwice, like keepass. Thanks,,,oh one more thing...oh well nevermind. Thanks for sharing.

    It doesn't really matter if it works, but at least people knows what is right or wrong. Then they do what they like. We educate , we don't enforce.

    I found Quick Javascript Switcher to be faster and easier though.

    With Chrome, I'm just using the native script permission to deny js for certain websites.

    Quick Javascript Switcher is just a way to quickly toggle those permissions per-site.

    Implement some type of system & data backup solution.
    Consider uBlock origin,Privacy Badger & HTTPS Everywhere in Chrome.
    Apart from that your config looks good! Thanks for sharing it with us :)
