    Google Chrome

    My email address is with Google. Can I establish another email address with Google on my PC? How does that work? If I can do it, I don't want the new email address to surpass the old one obviously.

    Yes you can. You can make as many email addresses as you want. If your current email address is glowpun(at)gmail.com. Make you new one: glowpun2(at)gmail.com.. and so on. To check your mail in glowpun2 address you'll have to go to the upper right hand corner, find my account and sign out of glowpun, then sign into glowpun2. Then to check glowpun's email you'll have to sign out of glowpun2, and sign back into glowpun.

    I didn't use the @ in the above examples because that would make a link to gmail.

    Also, you don't need to log into any Google account when you use the Chrome browser if you don't want to. And you don't need to use the Chrome browser to check any of the myriad Google email accounts you might want to set up.

    For example, I use the Windows Mail app to keep track of about eight email accounts...a mix of Google, Yahoo and a couple other email addresses. There are other email clients...including Google's Mail app for Android...that can do the same thing.

    In my case, I only use Chrome on my Win10 desktop...and I never sign into any of my Google accounts. That way my activity isn't connected to any of them. That's just another way I can minimize the tracking attempts by Google and web site owners.

    If you are like me and are not afraid of Google knowing what you are doing you can also open up several tabs and sign into each Gmail account at the same time. I have 1 account that pulls all of the Emails from all of my other accounts from Gmail, Yahoo, Outlook, AOL, etc.

    The same way you set up the first one. But why not utilize one of the many other free email clients to avoid confusion? Chances are you're ip service offers a free email account. Speak to their tech support.

    Google still tracks everything you do when you use chrome, or another browser with google as the default search engine. Even if you have turned on no tracking in the properties panels and are using addition tracking prevention packages, google keeps tracking you. Google is not your friend.

    I found google micro tracking cookies on my machine last week, even tho I don't use chrome, don't use google search, or any other of their products on this machine. Micro cookies are invisible to the user and require very sophisticated software packages for detection, not for the average user. Traced them to an advertising server located in France. The owner of the server had no idea the tracking cookies were being sent from their server. The platform (OS) of the client (you) is irrelevant.

    It is not fear, it is disgust with data mining.

    Cant use the internet without data mining really.. well you can if you are paranoid like ****, but that takes a lot out of the joy of the internet, so .. meh. At least Google is honest about what they do for the most part.

    Not too swift are you Pete. More than likely he already has an ip service. And more than likely his ip service does offer free e-mail accounts, included in the price he pays every month for the service. Really a terrible chore signing up for a new e-mail address and sending out notifications to those he wants to have that new address. Might even take 10-20 minutes of his time. Good to see you're using that empty noodle box as usual.
