I think this thread is important, but reading through some of the comments, it’s clear that some don’t understand security and the hostility of google and that their privacy is under attack when using google-anything::>
Here’s why I don’t use brave.
I can’t figure out how to display the menu.
The shortcut or hotkey to place a bookmark doesn’t seem to be present in brave.
Brave will not allow me to open multiple pages when I start it-these are the sites that I most often use.
The help system needs a lot of enhancement.
Brave does nothing to publicize or educate the average user regarding the danger to their privacy regarding the running of active content by websites.
Make no mistake, I understand brave is in development and I applaud its existence and thank all who administer and write code for it…as well as those who run this forum. I’d make brave my default browser tomorrow if it was just a little more user friendly and slightly more functional (as in feature rich).
For Windows and Mac users, the operating system and the fact that the programs are not open source is by far the largest security and privacy danger. For Linux users such as myself, the largest threat by far is the browser. In Linux, software is usually open source, the entire operating system is open source! The os and the software only does what the user thinks it should do without any ‘surprises’ (hidden dangers).
I look forward to the day when all computers are secure and private. Brave is a big step in this direction!
