I just wanted to thank the Team and the Community here at Brave. I was a hardcore user of Firefox for years because of the privacy it offered and the plethora of add-ons. To me it was the better option given how bad Chrome is for privacy and how terrible Chrome was at the time for memory leaks and hogging resources.
I felt no need to change from Firefox until recently when it started to let me down in terms of performance and issues I was experiencing. I religiously would open bug reports on their community forum and get asked for memory captures etc. and nothing seemed to get fixed. This went on for a period of years and the problems and issues I was experiencing got progressively worse.
I put up with it all because I couldn’t find any other browser that would let me customise the privacy and run the add-ons I want otherwise and then came along a recommendation of Brave.
I installed a copy and monitored it closely and it was exactly what I was looking for. Excellent privacy the way I want it to function and it lets me have access to all the add-ons I want.
On the system I’m running it on with the OS I’m running it on it runs flawlessly and it’s super nimble on memory compared to Firefox and Chrome (which I sometimes run sandboxed in a VM for special purposes).
Anyway… Just wanted to air my experience here and thank all those involved for a great product. I’ve switched and I’m happy I did. I look forward to future revisions and updates.
