Hello everyone!

Is this a Brave ad or an ad that has slipped out of Brave’s hands?

Hi @KetaKongen,

First, Brave ads is not available yet. It’s on trials now for selected volunteers and it requires a special build of Brave.

Then, it may 1st party ads that not blocked by Brave, yet.

I’m AFK for now, but I tested it on Android version and I see no ads. Will check again later when I’m in front off my laptop.

Hello @eljuno,

Alrighty, I saw something about that, but weren’t certain on anything.
Thanks for that.

It may…
I’ll wait for your update, then. :slight_smile:

The ad in question doesn’t seem to be 1st party.

Additionally, I don’t see it! :slight_smile:

@KetaKongen, would you mind navigating back to the website, opening your shields panel (lion icon on top right) and confirm that Ad Control is set to Block Ads? I’ve added a screenshot below to verify.

@KetaKongen

To me it appear at the right hand side and its written “sponsered” at the bottom of each of those ads.

Thanks

v0.23.79 since when? :open_mouth:


#10

@KetaKongen new version just released. :sweat_smile:

I just noticed that. There must have been a delay or something.

Thanks anyways!

Thanks for all the hard work in building browser. Uh, On another Linux Forum (in the Security section) I asked if others had tried the using Brave Browser. Someone replied that as GitHub is now owned by Microsoft (M$) that they did not trust the download.

I have not got it to install to Mint Linux 19 Cinnamon. I will figure it out after awhile.


#13

I see their worries, and Brave should too.
Though, it’s their decision in the end.

I’d recommend Tails OS for your selection of a Linux-based system.
Just in case, you’re a privacy-minded person. :slight_smile:

@green.dragon

What they can do is actually download the source code (rather than the build), and then compile/build the browser themselves from the source code on their computer. That way, they can verify that they’re really running the source code that they see on GitHub!

I should have put this somewhere else, and at some other time.
