ISSUE:

When opening Googies Chrome, the first tab by default is blank. (I don't need a start page).  Within seconds of opening Chrome, two more tabs open.

Each new tab opens a page to 

https://mybrowseraddon.com/webgl-defender.html?v=0.1.5&p=0.1.4&type=update

and 

https://mybrowseraddon.com/font-defender.html?v=0.1.3&p=0.1.2&type=update

and after about 5 minutes, a new tab opens with:

https://link.springer.com/book/10.1007%2F978-3-319-99828-2

BACKGROUND:

I have studied the fake Adblock Plus hijacker, and MBs response to hijacker "Tiempo en colombia en vivo" and neither seem close.

I have run a complete MB scan with no results.

I greatly appreciate the people that help out here - hats off to you,

Hello Outernaut and welcome to Malwarebytes,

Use the instructions at the following link to reset Chrome..

Does that help..?

Thanks,

Kevin...

That did not help. 

1 - I do not have a Google account. 

2 - I do not sync anything the other side of this modem.

3 - I do not need to store, sync, or otherwise share my -stuff- on another server (AKA "cloud"). 

4 - Don't even allow this site to inform the companies peeps that I am here.

Could it be my extra hard-nosed attempts at protecting my rights to privacy that somehow help Google dictate what I must have on my device?

Your expertise is appreciated. REALLY!

Thank you @kevinf80. I think having to tweak Chrome so much to get around things is the straw that can be fixed with another browser. 

I very much appreciate your efforts. MalwareBytes has been my saving grace, always will be.
