Day 42 of the series:

You may recall from my Plank article that I have several browsers on installed. One of them is NOT Brave. This is why.

@mike good stuff, definitely agree, have avoided brave since shortly after launch for similar reasons myself...

@mike I've used Brave for a long time and I have had zero issues with it. I build from src and don't enable the rewards program, zero ads.

@evertprants @mike Same. I use the binary though. I have no interest in the ad side of Brave, I turned that off.

It has built in tor browser, so if I want to check something that way fast, I don't have to use tor browser.

It's fast, use relatively OK memory. I only use a few extensions. The built in blocker stuff also very good.

@mike really liked this! I use Brave myself, but never really cared for the ad aspect of it. The affiliate link stuff kinda bothers me a bit as well

@Hawkjones My personal preference is , and I also have and installed. I'm not saying you shouldn't use if you like it, just giving the reasons why I don't.
