    Brave web browser

    I recommend people try out this browser as an alternative. I used to use firefox but requires a ton of plugins brave is pretty good out the box for blocking ads etc. Mobile browser is good also.

    disclaimer: I do not work for Brave

    Re: Brave web browser

    I use Brave as a Chrome alternative seeing as it it a Chrome fork (as far as I know) on my Android phone. The only thing I have found annoying is with Reddit. As it blocks cookies, I assume, I keep getting the show this in our app thing and have to close it on every post and strange lt there is a long delay in showing the actual post as well, almost like they have intentionally delayed it by like 5 to 10 seconds.

    Re: Brave web browser

    I have been using it for the past month and I love it. It's very fast with ad blocking and tracker blocking built-in. The newest version, which they released a few weeks ago, is based on Chromium and supports most Chrome extensions. Worth a look!

    Re: Brave web browser

    I use it as the default browser on android, where it works great for ad blocking.

    I used it on the desktop for a while, but it did have problems with a few websites which I now can't remmeber - I'll revisit it again now. A good plus is that it has lastpass built in.

    Re: Brave web browser

    Seems nice enough.
    I don't really use many plugins on any of my browsers anyway and lots of the stuff Brave has would similarly go unused, but fair play for offering us more options.

    Re: Brave web browser

    I've been using it for years now, love it. Still have chrome because some websites break with everything it blocks.

    I used them too, but Microsoft’s Chromium Edge browser is the best according to my own experience. light weight and consume less computing resource such as CPU and Memory
