I just finally downloaded Brave. Within a few hours, I was into the Extensions, looking to simulate the nice add-ons setup I had in FireFox. But I am really surprised that the only source for these is Google’s Chrome extentions store. Wha?
I went through about 50 of them, and (under Privacy practices), EVERY one either did not mention anything about maintaining privacy OR they stated “The publisher has disclosed that it will not collect or use your data.” Great (I thought), until I read the little section stating " This publisher declares that your data is (first point of three): Not being sold to third parties, outside of “the approved use cases.” But there’s a link to what that means, and it’s incredibly vague. Essentially, Google (or whoever) can do whatever they want with your data if they deem it is “If necessary to providing or improving your single purpose.”
I don’t know about anyone else, but in this world we’re now living in —yes, the one that has us moving to (supposedly) better, more secure browsers— we’re given Google as the trusted place to keep our data safe?
I’m going back to FireFox. If anybody can give me a good reason not to, I’m all ears. Thanks.
