    14 Anyone tried the Brave Browser?

    They have made a nice product and it benefits content creators. Please give it a try. I'm seeing if it really pays to use it. You should too. It's secure and respects privacy.

    Cheers...

    Been using it since becoming aware of it several months ago. I really like it. The auto ad=blocker is a Godsend, it even blocks youtube ads that appear before & after vids.

    I recommend it to anyone that wants seamless blocking. I have it installed on a Mac 10.13.6

    I tried it when it first launched but it didn’t support tabbed browsing or I couldn’t figure out how to open tabs instead of new windows. If they have changed that feature I’d be willing to try it again.

    I've been using it for several months also. Installed easily over windows 7. Love duck duck go search engine. Searching said to be really private.
    I do keep a copy of chrome in case....I don't think I've had to use it at all. What are y'all waiting for????

    Using it now. So far, so good.

    Looks interesting but if it's a Chrome port it's not going on my laptop. Uh uh........My laptop is google free.

    I use Opera and have been very pleased with it's smoothness, availability of good extensions and the fact it's not Google or Firefox. Duck duck go is a great search engine-no sponsored content, no "predictive search results". Type it in and that's what you get, not what someone wants to sell you.
    Konqueror is another good browser.

    I previously used Firefox and had periodic problems with upgrades and extensions.

    I tried it when it first came out and went back to FireFox in about 10 hours.......hated it. I'll stick with FF........for now. And you don't have to use Google on FF. You can use any search engine you want. Just add them to the search function in your options menu. We use Start Page and have for years now.

    As far as Chrome and any other Google gadget? No way........ No thanks. They try to install on my machine and get deleted/uninstalled quickly.
    As far as my IPad goes, I have Safari on it but really don't like that. I tried installing FF on it but so far no joy. Can't seem to get it enabled or whatever it takes. I don't use the Ipad much anyway other than to watch videos....... I HATE the onboard touch screen keyboard.........gag.......

    You guys can keep your touch screens. I like my old fashioned keyboard. I can use two hands on it and I don't have to look when I type.....

    Agree! It seems like like I've been using it for nearly 2 years ( but I could be totally wrong on the timeline) no problems at all
    I once was blind but now I see!...
    Acts 9:11 The Lord told him, “Go to the house of Judas on Straight Street and ask for a man from Tarsus named Saul, for he is praying. 12 In a vision he has seen a man named Ananias come and place his hands on him to restore his sight.”

    Is there an easy way of transferring bookmarks from Chrome to Bravo?

    I just looked at the Brave import options and Chrome is on the list.

    Love it. Used to use Firefox, but they went bonkers with upgrades. I'm not going back.

    Most browsers have morphed into Chrome.
    Pale Moon is the way to go. It is what Firefox should have been.

    I've been using Brave for a couple of years now, and also use it on my Samsung Galaxy S9 phone. Great browser, especially on mobile!

    Brave uses the Chromium browser engine which is open source. That doesn't make it "Chrome" per se and also means that everyone can see the code.

    Brave is a product of the a new company formed by the original Opera team.

    Opera was bought out by a Chinese led consortium led by a Chinese "search and security" firm. (OK OK - yeah that does sound pretty damn funny to me too.)

    So - pick your poison. I like Brave and FF and it takes little effort to reduce the amount of leaked data and overt collection. Try Startpage with the higher level of search privacy enabled, use a Pi-hole for DNS and a VPN and you are definitely on your way.

    I've been using Brave since it came out. Easy, fast, and no glitches!
    If at first you don't secede, try, try again!

    Instead of using dd go or whatever Ive been using search conservative as my default search engine. Not sure its anymore private than any other engine, but atleast you dont get liberal slanted articles as your first results.

    Didn't know Opera used the Chromium browser engine, thanks for the info.

    So Brave is another fork of Opera, like Vivaldi is?
