Hello Brave Community,
I am posting this to alert you to an unintended side effect to one of your security features. I understand that the blocking of .crx files is to defend against malware, but it defeats user freedom. I wish to install a banned extension called AdNauseam to better protect my privacy. It clicks every ad to throw off trackers, but as I said, manual .crx installation is blocked.
- Make the warning against manual .crx installation override-able.
- Possibly incorporate the AdNauseam code into the Brave extension.
I see it important not only to block tracking, but to also feed the tracker networks false data as a sign of our disdain of their existence.
