What are the best ways on Brave to defend against drive-by downloads?

Yeah erm, I have only recently started learning more about these things. I know that I could simply block scripts but… a) does that really stop all of them and b) it does seem a bit overkill and makes browsing the web more of a chore.

I am keen to stop them somehow though so I’m wondering what systems Brave already has in place and/or what I can add to the browser to make it more secure in this regard.

Thanks everyone!

Haven’t heard this term before, might depend on the sites you visit. Visiting dodgy sites (porn/warez/streaming sites etc) might not be a good idea. Or atleast look out for fake popups or just fake sites.
