Brave browser [solved]
« on: September 29, 2019, 09:26:33 pm »
Evenin' all,

I'm thinking of installing Brave. Anyone tried it/got an opinion please?

It sounds good, but I'm wondering whether it's one of those 'too good to be true' situations.

TIA.

Mike

I'm personally not a fan of their business model, to me it feels like an attempt to out Google Google and corner the advertising world.

It'll also fail

Personally I'm a fan of Firefox and DuckDuckGo, I'd rather use a browser and search engine from companies with proven track records of user privacy.

Besides which Brave is a Chromium clone, so is using Google technology to out Google Google .. do you think Google will allow this to work (or do you think Google will block or hijack it) ?

Yes. As I said, I wondered whether it was too good to be true.

Good points Mark, thank you. I also use FF and DDG. I'll stick with them. I hate google anyway..

Marking this solved now.
