Until it starts costing them money, at least. Once that starts happening, then I'm sure Google will suddenly start finding ways to keep advertisers' ads off of certain videos / channels.

Facebook did more or less the same thing, as I recall. A fix is always unfeasible until not having that fix starts costing them dollars...

Okay, yeah I know what Uber, Lyft, Waze, and Tinder are. But I suspect they're included in the list specifically to give credence to the idea these other unknown apps are "hot".

1 user to 50 users = 5000% increase!

But I'm sure there are no financial ties between these unknown apps and the people producing this "survey"...

Doesn't even require Safari - there's a password assistant built into the OS, even though it's not exposed as an application.

I still have (and use) a third-party utility called "Password Assistant", which was written by the guy behind the now-defunct website It provides a wrapper application which gives you direct access to the built-in password generator. It's extremely handy, even outside the web browser.
