More customizability

Hey! So i really like the brave browser. I switched from opera to brave because it’s really fast and private. The only thing i hate is the customizability of this browser. Like you can’t set a custom background in the new tab and more. One thing i would like is the sidebar too! I think brave will have way more users if they would add sidebar and more customizability. Like a have a lot of friends and they wont use brave just because there’s no sidebar. Oh and brave should work to block supercookies. You can test your browser on supercookie.me and i realized that brave doesn’t block it. I think this is the best browser. I hope they will add some more customizability :slight_smile:

Sidebar is in the works.

There’s an issue/s logged for this IIRC

Tagging @fanboynz @pes for information on this.

No ETA just yet, but the last post;

The Chromium team is working on cache partitioning similar to Firefox’s implementation: https://docs.google.com/document/d/1V8sFDCEYTXZmwKa_qWUfTVNAuBcPsu6FC0PhqMD6KKQ/edit

Brave will inherit this change as well once it’s ready.

re supercookie.me

Brave already protects against the attack demonstrated here. You can see so on the author’s description of the test here: https://supercookie.me/workwise. Further, Brave was the first major browser to implement defenses against the attack demonstrated here.

About broader supercookie style protections, Brave already defends against most of the attacks covered because of how we implement third party storage (partitioned, and blocking service workers in 3p contexts). There are still a few remaining caches and the like that need partitioning (the DNS cache comes to mind, though there are others) where we’ll pull in changes as they land in the chromium code base. If you’re interested, you can track some of this work here https://www.chromestatus.com/feature/5739996117991424 and here https://www.chromestatus.com/feature/6713488334389248 (some of this has already been enabled in Brave too)

Hi! I would really like to see that! But I still have some problems with the browser… Like it uses DOUBLE the ram Google Chrome uses. And sometimes it loads pages 2x slower that chrome. There should be a feature that when you go on a shopping website like amazon and you want to buy something Brave will search for coupons like the Honey extension. This feature is built into Microsoft Edge. And Brave won’t block all trackers. Like on Roblox one tracker is never blocked and Privacy Badger warns me about it. I like the browser and its going in the right directions! Have a great day~♡

Which tracker on Roblox isn’t blocked? (the full domain url). @Levdav

The tracker that Brave didn’t block on Roblox is c.evidon.com. I’m using Privacy Badger which is a tracking blocking extension and sometimes it finds a lot of trackers that Brave didn’t block. Privacy Badger automatically learns to block invisible trackers. And it is the best tracker blocking extension.

Ah yes, reason why its not blocked. Used for consent messages, and often will break some sites if blocked globally.

Sorry I didn’t know that! Thanks for letting me know!. But there are still some sites where Brave doesn’t block some trackers. Like on https://lingojam.com/FancyTextGenerator website there’s a tracker that brave didn’t block: lingojam.disqus.com. If I will find more I will contact you.

That isn’t a tracker. Disqus is a comment system, allows websites to implement a comments. We do block the trackers related to Disqus without affecting the comments.

If privacy badger is blocking Disqus I would avoid using, it’s a legit service.

Well I trust Privacy Badger. I’m not saying that you’re not saying the truth but Privacy Badger literally fights for your privacy online. Privacy Badger was created to protect users from pervasive non-consensual tracking, and to do so automatically, without relying on human-edited lists of known trackers. And Privacy Badger sends websites the “Global Privacy Control” and “Do Not Track” signals and they check if third-party domains comply with EFF’s Do Not Track policy. It even prevent sites from tracking which links you click (“hyperlink auditing”). Check https://www.bleepingcomputer.com/news/software/major-browsers-to-prevent-disabling-of-click-tracking-privacy-risk/ if you don’t know what’s that. And Privacy Badger literally wanted to pay 100,000 dollars to Google to not tracks users. Have a great day. Thanks for replying.
