Trying brave browser. So far so good. A few buts though.

Importing bookmarks, saved passwords and such works fine but you can't import stuff saved in the storage, which is a bummer.

Also, advertising it as a browser where you get paid/rewarded for viewing ads is a bit disingenuous. At a rate of 2 cents per ad (max 5 per day), it's like saying a breadcrumb is equivalent to half a slice of white bread.

Haven't been able to enable picture in picture mode, which is also a bummer.

An integrated torrent client inside the browser is kinda cool though!

That aside, it does run faster overall.

    Brave is alright, but remember that it doesn't actually care about your privacy. The guy running it is the same guy who wanted people to pay for netscape navigator bitd, colluded to suppress wages of employees at mozilla, and is all around a generally shitty person who ended up getting removed from the Mozilla because of his actions against the interest of his employees and society at large.

    @SortOfTested tbh I operate on the assumption none of the major browsers care about my privacy (defending it I mean).

    Remember that this is the browser that injected referral codes into the Binance sign-up form.

    @PrivateGER I remember reading about that but I didn't really get why it was such a controversy. Was it the fact it wasn't transparent about it or the referral link itself?

    When creating a new account on sites/services that have a referral system, isn't adding a referral code benefiting the referrer opposed as benefiting no one with no impact at all on the account created?

    I'm not familiar with Binance, is it different there?

    @nitnip Sure, it may not *cost* you anything, but I don't see how you could possibly trust a browser that claims to be privacy-focused pulling something incredibly intransparent like this.

    @PrivateGER again, trusting a browser is dumb. I only "trust" my extensions to block undesirable content work while "hoping" the browser isn't a dumpster fire and runs acceptably fast.

    I remember fucking firefox's memory usage increasing exponentially if you played a bit with the color palette while inspecting the html.
