Default Anyone using Brave for their browser ?

I've had an ongoing issue with Firefox for 6 months now and they, like many big corporations, have put up walls around themselves and made it impossible to contact them directly for tech help. They pass this off to a volunteer forum that has been completely useless.
So I researched other browsers and downloaded Brave just now to try. It will be a while before I'm comfortable ditching Firefox for good.

I use it. It blocks all of the trackers and the search page lets you know how much bandwidth and minutes you have saved.

Thanks, Tom, I have AdBlock and FB container on Firefox and recently added Privacy Badger to block trackers, but not being able to get tech help for FF anymore is really frustrating. From what little I can find, Brave was started by a developer who worked for FF and left because of their policy changes.

That's my understanding too. Most Browser platforms are composed of basic spyware. Google Chrome is the absolute worst.

Most E-mail services also spy on you as well... Anything that must remain private should be sent and received via Proton mail.

I've had Proton as my email for over a year.

For those running Chrome you need to update it pronto...It has been confirmed to be hacked.
