Does & will Brave protect us from HTML5 click tracking/auditing?

Hi all,

I hope that I have chosen the right thread for this question, as the forum structure confused me a little bit.

Anyway: as the Brave browser is based on Chromium and as Alphabet/Google now have removed the flag ://flags -> hyperlink auditing / #disable-hyperlink-auditing -> enable I am wondering whether Brave will have the resources to restore this?

As Chromium’s entire code should be accessbile to developers - unless I understood something wrong - will the Brave team work on bringing this privacy protecting feature back to life?

On my Linux version of Brave (Version 0.63.55 Chromium: 74.0.3729.131) I can not find this flag any more.

For other users who want to know more about the topic:

or from the risk/threat perspective

Thanks in advance.

Maybe when I’ll have more time over the weekend.

But to be honest - and if that earns me the selfish-badge I’ll have to accpet that - my focus is more on protecting my/a user’s privacy.
