  1. Brave is really pretty cool, at least pieces of it. I’ve got some serious issues with the whole “lets just yeet your ads and we’ll put our own here instead” That’s definitely sketchy.

    I’ve got some concerns also about using a browser and a search engine from the same company. Like sure, Brave is great and all, but what happens when they get bought out by Kape? Putting all my privacy eggs in one corporate basket always worries me. I wouldn’t use a Firefox search engine, or a DDG web browser. Sorry, Google ruined that for everyone else.

  2. The thing about Brave browser I don’t like is that it pushes crypto currency. I just want to browse the web with a browser. If I wanted to do something with crypto currency I’d either use…

    • A dedicated app
    • A plug in
    • A dedicated site

    None of which I’ll ever use.

  3. I really don’t care for the baked-in crypto stuff in Brave. I don’t want that, and I will never want that. Still looking for a new home after Firefox.

  4. BAT amounts are never ported for me when going from Windows to a Linux install.
