For anyone who is not aware:
Brave is a chromium browser (so it works the same way, supports all your extensions, etc) but has built-in tracker and ad blocking.
To top it off, you can choose to watch Brave ads (only if you want) and get paid for it.
@thesohaibkhan same, I’ve been thinking of switching to Brave for browsing and I also set up Proton Mail. Now I’m trying to work out how long it take me to phase out Gmail and google drive from my personal life. Feels like years 😬
@deepreneur in some situations its on you because you hit allow and well, they get the go ahead. Other than that I had a senior dev telling me about the stealing. I haven't gotten to know that but yes Google does collect your data without your consent on numerous occasions.
I like to use Firefox for the extensive use of extensions (haha). I use several browsers, but on mobile (iOS), Chrome doesn't allow the use of extensions.
I've previously used Opera before and ran into some bugs.
Safari is alright as a Macbook user but lacks the connectivity of a Google browser.
Recently switched to Firefox on all devices - Win 10, Mac and iOS. Using Facebook Container and Privacy Badger which are both great. If anything breaks or doesn't work for whatever reason I jump over to Chrome for that one site.
Also using Duck Duck Go wherever possible but sometimes you just can't beat Google for an answer!
