Andrew Torba, co-creator of Gab (social network) has announced plans to create a new browser. His reasons center primarily on his expectation that Google is going to block Gab’s upcoming ‘comments engine’ browser extension & prevent it from being available in the Chrome Store.
While listening to him (see URL below), I was thinking to myself: ‘Why doesn’t he just look into partnering with Brave?’
Seconds later, Torba said “… so why don’t we fork Brave, because Brave has done the best in terms of using privacy, ad blocking, etc.… it’s open source, so we can just fork it…” (after which he went on to criticize Brave for its apparent decision to use BAT instead of bitcoin, etc.)
The part about Brave starts at 02:40.
