Brave isn't totally free of Google source code

Hello, chatting on several groups, brave would not be properly cleaned of Google code what do you think?

Here is their answer :

It’s a mistake, Brave is not properly degooglised, so we might as well recommend Chrome to them.

Already they’re using Google safebrowsing. The widevine plugin is enabled by default and not simply disabled. And especially unlike Bromite or others no “cleaning” of the source code has been done.

Widevine isn’t “Google”, and Google safebrowsing is proxied.

If you want to checkout specific, on whats disabled/proxied: https://github.com/brave/brave-browser/wiki/Deviations-from-Chromium-(features-we-disable-or-remove)
