I’ve always used a number of privacy extensions in Chromium & FF. While trying to add extensions to handle some forms of fingerprinting, I stumbled on Brave. I’d like to switch, and need some help in that task. I’ve been using:
All of Gorhill:
- uBlock Origin
- uBlock Origin Extra
- uMatrix [Appears still needed for fine script control.]
- Privacy Badger
- HTTPS-Everywhere [No longer needed.]
- Decentraleyes [Probably still needed - no indication that Brave touches content delivery networks.]
- User-Agent switcher for Google-Chrome [Appears still needed.]
- Cookie Autodelete [Appears still needed. Brave lacks First Party Storage Isolation.]
Here are my questions:
I’m not clear if Strict Site Isolation is default? If not, how do I enable it? With isolation, is there any longer a point to autodeleting cookies?
Why is fingerprint protection only set to “3rd party?” Any difficulties with “Block all fingerprinting?” Would ScriptSafe or BrowserPlugs, which I had been looking into for fingerprint protection, give me any finer control?
I had been blocking all ads, and for the moment would like to continue. I also like the fine control of scripts. Which of the Gorhill/EFF addons will I need?
Let me know if there’s some reason I don’t need decentraleyes or the user-agent switcher.
Thanks for your input!
