I am okay with receiving the Brave ads. When they appear (on my Linux box), the ad popup appears in the upper right-hand corner of my screen. I have two problems with this popup:
It appears on top of my top panel interfering with my system operation. If it were half an inch lower, it would be fine.
When the popup appears, I have no way of getting rid of it. If I click on it, it brings up a browser window to the vendor. That’s fine - sometimes. Other times I’m in the middle of something and just want to get rid of the popup. It needs an X so that I can just close the popup without going to the vendor’s website.
Due to the above issues, I have disabled ads.
