Hello! But see how much trackers are blocked from speedtest.net, how much trackers blocked from google. With chrome that trackers running without difficulty!

Thank you for the speedy reply.

Are you saying that blocking of items actually slows down the connection? Brave was sold as being fast, precisely because it doesn’t bother with ads/trackers.

Or are you saying that Brave offers the benefit of not tracking me? In this case I would respond that the concern here is performance, not tracking.
