ublock origin does not support cname unmasking on chromium browsers (Brave Shields do)
this means that you have to use Firefox which is slower, is pozzed and has telemetry.

Here's an archived version of Brave's Wikipedia article in case that information disappears somehow See the section #Business model
https://web.archive.org/web/20200227000950/https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Brave_(web_browser)

Peter Thiel is the chairman of Palantir Technologies. Wikipedia describes Palantir Technologies like this:
( https://web.archive.org/web/20200128121847/https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Palantir_Technologies )

>Palantir Technologies is a private American software company that specializes in big data analytics. Headquartered in Palo Alto, California, it was founded by Peter Thiel, Nathan Gettings, Joe Lonsdale, Stephen Cohen, and Alex Karp.

Further along the Wikipedia article, some interesting stuff starts coming up

>The company is known for three projects in particular: Palantir Gotham, Palantir Metropolis and Palantir Foundry. Palantir Gotham is used by counter-terrorism analysts at offices in the United States Intelligence Community (USIC) and United States Department of Defense, fraud investigators at the Recovery Accountability and Transparency Board, and cyber analysts at Information Warfare Monitor, while Palantir Metropolis is used by hedge funds, banks, and financial services firms.

Brave is a browser that has been gaining popularity for several months now. Created in 2016 by Brendan Eich, the creator of the JavaScript programming language and cofounder of Mozilla Firefox, Brave Browser is closely linked to the Basic Attention Token cryptocurrency project.
Brendan Eich’s desire to create Brave Browser and the Basic Attention Token project was born from a simple observation: the current Internet is broken and users are the first victims. Their privacy is exploited for advertising purposes and they have become the product of web giants like Google.
Even worse, browsing the Web on a product like Google Chrome is becoming slower and slower due to the intensive tracking that is done but also to the increasingly intrusive ads that take time to load. All this is strongly detrimental to the user experience, which is becoming more and more disastrous.
In order to address this issue and create a new standard for an Open Web, Brave Browser was created. Its recent release in version 1.0 strengthens more than ever the innovative advertising model at the heart of Basic Attention Token.

Is this an ESL thing? Just some illiterate retard thing? How do you shorten "advertisement" not into "ad(vertisement)" but into "add(ition)"?
This improper contraction is something I've seen in similar frequency as people using "times" as a verb in place of "multiplied by" and "I feel like" instead of "I think". Such a bizarre yet widespread failure to use English correctly.

Also these threads are garbage and reek of someone being paid to post them or some bot doing the posting.

Ungoogled chromium does not support cname unmasking (this is why ublock devs complain), only Firefox and Brave do: https://brave.com/privacy-updates-6/

Firefox, though made by leftist trannies, is a necessary evil. There is a reason that Tor uses it. I can say with 100% confidence that my browsing is private. Can you say the same with Brave?

No, you can't. The browser is developed by an ad company, built on top of google shit, using a watered down, built-in ublock origin that operates with a whitelist.

That's not spyware. These domains are necessary for automatic updates of Brave and its filters (which are updated separately) and some of them protect your privacy (see >>83392062).

>>83393553
>Can you say the same with Brave?
Yes, I can.. Brave blocks all trackers, has excellent fingerprint protection and goes the extra mile to protect your privacy (see >>83392062).
>using a watered down, built-in ublock origin
It's better than ublock origin because it has cname unmasking. (see https://brave.com/privacy-updates-6/)
>operates with a whitelist.
It whitelists the specific subdomains required for login buttons to work, which can be disabled in the settings. This is also the default behavior in ublock.

Brave makes it easier for you to be tracked than stock Chromium. Look at their issue tracker. The most identifying fingerprinting bugs are open since years. Since those are not hidden but some others are its easier for you to be tracked than if none of the fingerprint was altered at all (Websites can detect you run Brave with 3 lines of JS now imagine how many people run Brave over how many run Chrome/Firefox).

Also Peter Thiel/Palantir (aka US government) is a major investor in Brave. Peter Thiels main business is providing US government with as much private user data as possible. They literally say it themselves.

>>
>>83394515
Brave themselves said that such tests are useless (which they are because they only compare you to other users of the site which are heavily skewed and because they only register a subset of values since they don't show how commercial trackers act nor do they want to again Brave says this themselves )

As for the fingerprinting issues. Type into Braves issue tracker fingerprinting and look on the dates that they have been open since. The worst fingerprinting offenders (fonts, client dimensions) have been open since years (and the original issues got deleted so those are already newer than the original ones).

And no the Palantir case is not schizo. Palantir themselves say we provide US government with user data to analyze threats. This is a fact the company acknowledges themselves. Brave got major funding from Palantir (which they disclosed like they have to). If you think that does not put them in a situation to sell their user data you should be trusting Google who says they don't sell user data if you opt out. Google at least is under regulatory scrunjty worldwide. Brave is too small and irrelevant to be brought up by lawmakers their only users are tech illiterate script kiddies who fall for marketing schemes.

Funny thing is Brave themselves say buried down in their wiki to use Tor browser over Brave if"your personal safety depends on it" because they know very well how easy it is to deanonymize Brave.
>>
>>83394515
Brave gotmost of their initial money from Palantir. Palantirs main business is selling user data to US government. Both of those are undeniable facts (or do you disagree?). If that does not ring any alarm bells you are just stupid.

Brave raised $4.5m in 2016 from 13 funds, one of which happens to be the Founders Fund, which Peter Thiel is a key member of. That fund has made over 500 investments in similar companies.
Brave also raised $35m in 2017 from their BAT ICO, so no they didn't "got most of their initial money from Palantir"
But let me know when you find the Palantir-sponsored spyware in Brave's code, which you can view here: https://github.com/brave
