Good evening friends,
So today after doing a bit of research about the Brave browser, I decided to download it on my Macbook.I was most interested in the ad blocker’s ability to actually block ads. So I put the thing to the test!
First website I tried out was youtube.com and it was awesome!!! No ads on videos!!! Whoa!
After witnessing it’s power to actually block ads on youtube, I didn’t think there was much it was not able to block. I downloaded Brave browser on all of my devices and computers, etc.
As I am sitting here now waiting for my wife to prepare dinner, I thought to visit theChive.com! I always enjoyed surfing the random content & the eye candy ; ) this site had to offer. I stopped visiting the site since ads took over the entire site.
Now that I had the Brave browser to use, I decided to again test out its powers! Upon first glance, the adblocker seemed to work brilliantly. However, it only works on the pages with images. If I try to view a video, it does not load. I attempted to disable the shields/ad blocking, and sure enough, the video loads.
Not expecting anything in regards to immediate response, I simply wanted to contribute by reporting this issue!
Nevertheless, good jobs Devs! I think this startup is the future of Browsers.
