Brave Browser

Postby Executioner » Thu Mar 26, 2020 11:26 pm

Anyone here using Brave Browser? I've always been a FF user, but I noticed with Brave I don't need Ublock Orgin, PrivacyBadger, and AdGuard Adblocker. It seems to stop all this junk from getting through. With FF, I have to have all those extensions installed. Not only that, but it load a lot faster than FF and even Chrome. I do have the new Edge installed, but I don't trust MS. It seems that Brave really respects your privacy from the reviews I've seen on line.

I use Brave instead of Chrome as a secondary browser - just for Google stuff. I keep that browser open all the time with my calendar, contacts, SMS, maps and gmail so I can sync with my phone.

I still prefer Firefox as my primary browser, along with Ublock Origin.

I do not recommend the built in ad blocker in Brave - it is EXTREMELY aggressive and will break a lot of web sites, and is difficult to tweak. I disabled it and use Ublock Origin.

I use Brave mostly. I've found that it CAN be a little aggressive but not that bad. I also have FF handy on my other screen for referencing stuff.
