So now Mozilla will be enabling Hyperlink Auditing in Firefox soon. What is it with browser vendors wanting to erode the privacy of their users? Is there financial gain in it for them?

I've recently switched to Brave on my Android phone. It looks like it could be an option for my laptop and desktop PCs too.


Brave inc. is primarily an ad company, I don't think it's the answer you're looking for

@wuwei I'm aware that they operate a rewards system which is based on the use of advertisements.

I haven't opted-in to that and the browser itself has an ad-blocking feature which is working.

My concern is that Mozilla is a late arrival to this party and other browsers are already implementing the feature.
