Hi

Is the new Browser "Brave" good to try out?  Any advice would be appreciated.

Thanks in advance.

Yes, it's "good to try out". https://www.google.c...Q4dUDCAo&uact=5

 

Do keep in mind though that most everyone has their own opinion.

Depends on what you want from it ?

I've used it as a second browser for a while, and it suits me in that role. It's not as configurable as Firefox (my primary browser), but it does have a number of out of the box security/privacy features that I find useful at times.

Basically there's 3 browsing modes with Brave ...

 

  • Normal ... adblocker, beacon blocker, fingerprint blocker, cookie control, https everywhere, script blocking ..... configure as you wish.
  • Private ... as above but deletes all cookies and history when you end session.
  • Private with Tor ... uses Tor browser to connect, for added privacy.

But for a better idea of its capabilities see .... https://support.brave.com/hc/en-us

Only one note of criticism about Brave ...... the Uninstaller isn't very good, and leaves a lot of Registry orphans ..... so if you do install it, and at some future point want to uninstall it, then use something like RevoUninstaller or GeekUninstaller to remove it.

I have been wanting to try this out for ages. I heard a lot of great things about it but also heard that a lot of websites are being blocked when using brave, does anyone have any comments on this?
