I've migrated from using Chrome and Firefox over to Brave. So all my preferred Chrome extensions work.
I'm liking it, but I've not read deeply into the guts of the Marketing and the realities of the Privacy claims, yet.

If Brave proves to be as it claims and becomes popular enough, I hope the SG site owners do the setup work to allow them to get Tips.

For those who don't know what Brave Web Browser is:
https://brave.com/

It looks and acts (to the user) like Chrome.
In a nutshell it is a Chromium based web browser designed around privacy and page load speed.
Removed the need for most add-ons (that often want your personal info) such as ad blockers and script blockers.
Its worth looking into if you ever chose to use anything except M$ Internet Explorer or Edge.

For security reasons I'm uncomfortable using or recommending derived browsers, that is browsers based on Chromium or Firefox with modifications. The web browser is the largest attack surface in modern computing, and the main browser vendors (Google, Mozilla, Microsoft, and Apple with Safari) are best positioned to quickly respond to vulnerabilities. Browser forks are often not included in coordinated disclosure, and they inherently have a longer response time due to the need to integrate patches into their modified codebase.

I use Firefox and recommend uBlock Origin for anyone who wants a fast, privacy-respecting ad and tracker blocker.

Haven't tried it and won't as I like my Firefox and I know that all my personal data or anyone who is not a politician or a star is worth 1-3 Euro max. And I also know that google and facebook have all our data.

I've been using it for awhile now (back when it was still in beta). Have had 0 issues with it, plus you get paid cryptocurrency for seeing small ad popups. I make $20-$25 in BAT cryptocurrency every month (I use it on home desktop, laptop, phone and work computer).

+1. Its a small way to get something back for your info and ad watching.

Yes, but if you want to be able to withdraw that BAT, Uphold (partner of Brave) requires you to take a biometric photo and give them your official ID info. It's the next level in sharing your info. Understandable, if money is involved. Still, that was one step too far for me.

I use it in my home pc. It is a love and hate relationship.
I moved from FF to brave, because freaking FF does not load pages like google at all, sometimes. I have tried to fix it but to no avail.
It is a weird bug, google is blank or like there is no CSS applied.

Back to brave.
I would not say that it was faster or better. I find him annoying in a lot of things, but I prefer him from Chrome.
The new versions of FF, supposedly are better and faster. I may move back to FF though. I still try to find the strength to do a clear install though.

Around July last year started using it, since both Chrome and Firefox were performing really bad, slow loads, freezes, and even some sites didn't even work. Luckily found Brave as an alternative. Imagine using an integrated GPU and finally using a proper GPU, that was my case. Love almost everything in this browser, except that you can't select and block whatever you need (with the integrated "shield"). Also, Popup Blocked (strict) is heavily recommended.

Installed it also on my android phone, and it syncs with the pc without problems.

Is there any browser that can be installed without being superuser :D

I mean, i look at here --> https://spyware.neocities.org/articles/browsers.html

I tried to install GNU IceCat but couldn't find a normal "download and install" thing. Later i could download a tar.bz2 file but couldn't manage to open it. Am i missing something here? (same for Ungoogled Chromium)

Note that building binary packages for Windows and macOS currently requires nonfree software, so we no longer distribute binary releases for those platforms.

They expect you to compile it yourself, which isn't exactly easy, I didn't succeed with it on my Linux installation. I just wish I could install IceCat through apt, I heard Fedora and Arch have it in their repositories.

Sorry buddy I can't help you install this, but if you are running windows 10 then your privacy is already gone.

Well, sadly that is true. I am just trying to make it more secure than Windows-Chrome-Facebook trio :/

It's not privacy-friendly because it's yet one more browser based on Chromium. All those browsers based on Chromium empower Google to do wtf they want to web standards and beyond. Like this

But I'm pissed at Fx too because they like to think they're my mama, so I won't insist either

It's an awesome browser, since Firefox went to shit with few last versions I'm using Brave as my main browser at the moment. And it performs much better than it's older big brother Chrome.

I've migrated from using IE, Chrome and Firefox over to Brave wich is actually another version of Chrome(ium) . Same old Google , just different name .
The main concern about using Brave is that it seem like leaking users data when using VPN
So i switched back to Firefox .

I see no reason to use any other browser than Firefox as it provides everything i need plus has joined the fight for privacy.
