If you think brave browser is a privacy respecting browser, you should read this thread in codeberg, made by the spyware.neocities.org team: https://codeberg.org/shadow/SpywareWatchdog/issues/40#issuecomment-165767 Summary: brave connects to some domains when you start it up (phones home), one of these domains is static1.brave.com, if you curl --head it, you get this:

> curl --head static1.brave.com HTTP/1.1 301 Moved Permanently Date: Mon, 28 Dec 2020 23:26:23 GMT Content-Length: 0 Connection: keep-alive Location: https://www.gstatic.com/

(In simple words, it is a redirect to google) But even worse, if you do an IP lookup to static1.brave.com, you get this:

> curl ipinfo.io/$(dig +short A static1.brave.com) { "ip": "", "anycast": true, "city": "San Francisco", "region": "California", "country": "US", "loc": "37.7621,-122.3971", "org": "AS13335 Cloudflare, Inc.", "postal": "94107", "timezone": "America/Los_Angeles", "readme": "https://ipinfo.io/missingauth" }error code: 1003error code: 1003%

That's right! brave browser is chainloading spyware and ads companies!
