  • A few notes about the Brave browser

    Posted on November 30th, 2019 at 07:02 woody Comment on the AskWoody Lounge

    I just started testing the Brave browser and I’m impressed.

    Built-in ad blocking. Tracker blocking (AskWoody still has some Twitter trackers, which I’m running down right now). Easy setup with the search engine of your choice. Chrome add-ons work. Much to like about this one.

    The ad block seems to work with all of the sites I visit normally. Ad blocking shouldn’t make any difference with AskWoody because we’re ad-free, but the ad-laden sites I’ve seen in the past couple of hours render correctly – and quickly.

    I’ll be setting up Brave Rewards shortly, so y’all can leave micro-tips, should you feel so inclined.

    Give it a shot and let me know what you think.
