Brave reveals installed extensions

I visited https://z0ccc.github.io/extension-fingerprints/ and saw that it could see exactly which extensions I have installed. It said “0.004% of users share the same extensions” and gave me a complete list of exact which extensions that I have installed. This is completely unacceptable for a browser that claims to be a privacy-focused browser with protection against fingerprinting. Now it’s definitely time to ditch this scam and switch to Firefox instead.

It’s possible to detect your Firefox extensions as well
