Admit it, you got duped by an ad company pushing a cryptoscam and fell for the meme.now that the marketing campaign is over, are you still using le shit lion?
>>84472716the only lion that im using is firefox
>>84472716>muh web browserhang yourself
Never used it, never will.My heart is with FirefoxThis shit leaked .onion DNS requests to your clearnet DNS server lmao
>>84472716Yes it looks sleek af
>>84472716You know that BAT is up over $1.30 right now, right? I made a couple grand on BAT. You're a literal retard for not getting involved.
>>84472716Tested it for about 20 minutes months or years ago, concluded it was bloated garbage with an outdated adblocker and useless built-in scripts, opted to remain with Vivaldi. Chromium may be hot garbage, but it just works and I refuse to support the current Mozilla leadership.
>>84473304Doesn't count and you know it.
>>84472716Mozilla and Chrome are run by trannies and Edg is determined to feature bloat itself Teams style into irrelevance.Is it time for me to go back to Brave? I think it might soon be.
>>84473644There's a reason why it's called brave.Anyway, enjoy the partyvan ride I guess.Right-wing sperg gonna get fucked again just because some boomer on a political blog told him to be afraid of "trannies"
>>84472716the sheer amount of fud about brave is truly amazing. someone might be paying for this smear campaign.i've used it and it is legit. the browser is good, has sane defaults, has innovative features (that you can choose to use them or not). i hope they have enough funds in the future to balance the chromium development.never change your spirit, brave. you are in the right direction.
>>84473736>Braved leaked .onion requests to your clearnet DNS server...>"the browser is good"
>>84472716was on it for a while. switched back to firefox when the new compositor rolled out to my gpu
>>84473768you don't get it anon they stopped doing shady shit (after they got caught) so its ok!!! they fixed it!
>>84473736>someone might be paying for this smear campaign.Says the paid br*ve shill trying to get rich from his shitty cryptobrowser scam.
I tried using it for a month but the lack of customisation is a deal breaker for me. Dropped
>el scam catGlad I stuck with Firefox.
>>84473736>balance chromium development fucking retard. Google maintains full control over the main repositories. Microsoft has tried to get even an ounce of control over Chromium and google will. not. budge. A proper independent "fork" isn't an option because maintaining a browser is fucking expensive and 99% of activity would just be pulling patches downstream
>>84473820Microsoft's current strategy is actually quite interesting. They've pulled a LOT of ex-googlers in the last few years, it honestly reminds me of Google will Firefox. Google used have a full time team dedicated to contributing to Firefox, then all of a sudden they ramped up hiring efforts and pulled a bunch of firefox engineers, contributions continued for a while until they didn't, then we got chrome. I wonder if Microsoft is going to try to attempt this with Chromium
>>84473874Microsoft EEEing Chromium and taking it closed source (cuck license permits this) would be the funniest shit ever
>>84473768>>84473792bug-free perfection is the standard for any other browser, isn't it? just brave has had bugs. stay away from it.
>>84473792keep telling that, anon. it might bring a perfect browser into existence.
>>84473841the browser war today and in the future is clearly about taking control of chromium developed, for exerting dominance or simply to sabotage it. a struggle for dominance seems to be the choice of everyone involved.
>>84473971It'll probably kill them but as long as Gecko is usable I'll keep using Firefox, leadership is retarded and trannies etc etc whatever but they STILL maintain their own engine which is the bravest possible decision right now.
>>84472716No I'm just using an actually good browser, nice FUD.
>>84473776I doubt they did that maliciously, they probably just implemented it terribly. I use Brave but I'll be the first to say you shouldn't touch the Tor feature with a 10 foot pole.
>>84473890Kek, kind of hoping for this timeline now.
the watch ads for crypto thing never ever worked for me
>>84472716works for me
>>84474351You get paid every 5th of the month.
>>84474500I mean I don't get the ads
>>84472716i dont know jack shit about technology do i use brave or firefox or what the fuck do i use now
>>84475287whatever suites your needs. don't listen to (((/g/))). I use firefox because it supports tree style tabs and some other extensions like ublock origin the best, simple as.
>>84472716I still use it. but not because of BAT. It's smooth and at least it doesnt shove ads onto my face.Btw, wtf do /g/ love firefox so much?>slow>crappy extensions>adsAs a former long-term firefox user, I despise it
>>84475361fast on my machine + more apis = better extensions, that simple. I made an extension that seemingly should have worked in chromium but ended up not because of quirks in its async clipboard implementation, sucks
>>84472716no i saw it was bloated chromium garbage and never stopped using librewolf
>>84473303>A Vivaldi user complaining about Brave being """bloated"""Enjoy your operating system, anonhttps://vivaldi.com/features/
>>84473200>Dude it had a bug for like a day 2 years ago for this niche feature that you shouldn't even be using.
>>84473303>Calls Brave bloated>Prefers VivaldiI actually can't fucking stand this board any more.
>>84472716I just wish the mobile app allowed extensions... or atleast implemented them
>>84474351You don't "watch ads" on Brave.
>>84475416>Chromium reskin is badWhy does this matter? Isn't the entire point of FOSS so that people can fork things?>That inserts their own codes and affiliates.Why does this actually matter compared to all of the bullshit other browsers are doing? It's either this, making money off of data mining or relying on Google for 80% of your revenue. Your choice.>You get a worthless cryptoOpt in. Also it's literally not worthless if you can immediately cash it out. I don't know why you're complaining about this 100% optional feature.
>>84472716functional fingerprint randomization
>>84476940If you shouldn't be using a feature why is it there? It is at best bloat and at worst disingenuous.
>>84472716Console war thread
>>84477084To visit .onion sites on a normal browser. If you want to visit .onion sites as anonymously as you can, then use Tor. You should obviously not be using Brave private browser if you want the privacy that Tor gives you. I would agree that it's unnecessary but I'm not autistic to care about minor bloat.
>>84477111>If you want to visit .onion sites as anonymously as you can, then use Tor.I know, my question was rhetorical. >You should obviously not be using Brave private browser if you want the privacy that Tor gives you.Idk, I just feel like having it there in the first place and then actually advertising this feature (idk if they do now but used to), which is flawed in the first place (and could actually be dangerous if your data goes through an uncompromised node), just feels disingenuous. But kudos for looking like an actually reasonable person, I'm tired of arguing with people with seem like either like paid shills desperate for shekels or schizoid retards.
>>84477033chromium isnt foss and a reskin is not a fork
>>84472716you can turn off the virtual shekels thing but you can't turn off their custom tracking.Brave, not even once.
>>84473768You are fucking retarded if you used it for onion stuff that’s just basic security
>>84477929you're fucking retarded if you use brave for anything
>>84475287I use firefox on desktop because Firefox on Android is the only browser that has an actual adblock and its not fucking chinese botnet like Opera and I can get sync between devices.
>>84472716What ad company and what crypto scam? Ads aren't even on by default, the ad list is stored locally and even if you do turn them on they aren't borderline or full on malware or spyware. That's the reason why they were crested. To be an alternative to the current ad revenue driven web 2.0 internet.As far as I can understand, you can sell BAT and that's pretty much it about the crypto aspect. To get an amount which you'd trade you have to be a YouTuber or have a fairly large online following, so as far as crypto goes this is as legitimate as it has gotten as far as I'm aware. Everything is FOSS and has been from the start, so you're to check and confirm everything. Their developers also answer questions regularly on their subreddit. A scam is when everything is FOSS and developers are being as transparent as possible. https://github.com/brave/
>>84478012Kiwi browser on Android has whichever ad block you want since it has extension support. It's open source as well.
Yes, I only use based and red pilled browsers. I dislike tranny browsers (trannyfox).
>>84478069>Ads aren't even on by default,you know what's on by default and can't be turned off? Brave's own tracking engine.
>>84478161oh look, a fat racist american!
>>84478183Look, a tranny
>>84478217>Look, a tranny
>>84478175What tracking engine, what are you even on about?
>>84478245the one that digest all your tracking info on site but and then sends all the data for their custom advertisement program, don't play stupid. Everybody knows this.
>>84478268>the one that digest all your tracking info on site but and then sends all the data for their custom advertisement program,Which is called? Why do I have to pull words out of your mouth if everyone knows about this? Anyway, since it's FOSS, I'm sure you'll be able to point it out in the source code.https://github.com/brave/
>>84478292yeah, you got the address. now go look it up.
>>84478327>yeah yeah bro, it's full of tracking I know it but you look it all up insteadCome back when you're not trolling and badly I might add.
>>84474257>redditjakYou are not welcome here. The mods of 4chan have spoken and banished you back to your basedjack website. Please stay there.
>>84478352don't be butthurt,you know I'm right.just admit you've been duped and move on.
>>84478373>still no argument or an example of anythingReply again when you're not retarded.
>>84472716>tfw literal free moneyI don't understand why so many of you are against FREE MONEY
>>84479004You need to be a YouTuber or have an actual online following otherwise to really anything that's not pocket change.
>>84479042Or live in the third world
>>84479301You see, an american dollar is worth a lot in third world countries, for example: one dollar is almost 22 mexican pesos, 75 indian rupees, 74 russian rubles, 5 brazilian reals, etc.
>>84474622The ads are little popup notifications on windows, they dont display in the webpage.If you have your windows settings confgured to not allow the little toast notifications then brave cant pop the ads.
>>84479595dont care its still chromium garbage and not open source
>>84479801>not open sourceBrave is FOSS....https://github.com/brave/brave-core/blob/master/LICENSEhttps://www.gnu.org/licenses/license-list.html#MPL-2.0>inb4 muh (((Braver)))
>>84472716I am using it and brave search. You cannot stop me
>>84479503But I doubt you'd earn even close to that if you don't have a larger YouTube channel or an otherwise larger online presence.
>>84479869chromium isnt so neither is brave
>>84479971Are you merely pretending to be retarded?https://github.com/chromium/chromiumhttps://chromium.googlesource.com/chromium/src
>>84478237why is it always fedora tippers that own moist nuggets
>>84478069>le github linkThis shit again! no one is going to sift through millions of lines of code just to prove you wrong, fucking faggot. Just use wireshark and see the number and volume of the packages brave is sending and receiving from home.
>>84472716only a retard would fall for brave's super obviously astroturfed marketing campaing.
>>84472716Its the best mobile browser for blocking ads on sports streams and movie streaming sites and in general. On a regular browser its still really great for me as its lightweight fast and blocks add by default. If it had a vpn it like opera would be best one out
I use brave when I jack it because some websites I use the adblockers I have on firefox don't function. brave blocks everything completely.
>>84481492shilliggerget out, play with friends, don't come back
>>84480781I don't like using Wireshark since it spies on you with tracking and stuff
>>84472716>now that the marketing campaign is overalso note that the anti-firefox threads are gone
>>84479596I'm on ubuntu. System notifications for Brave are on. I chose 10 ads per hour. 0 ads shown. Checked my dns log. Everything is fine. 0 ads shown. Checked the number of ad campaigns in my country. Everything is fine. 0 ads shown.I don't get ads.
>>84477325>>84479971Chromium is OSS, Chrome is not.
>>84472716It’s the best mobile browser for iOS.
>>84472716Cowards don't belong on Brave
>>84482334yeah, only retards
>>84480781>Just use wireshark and see the number and volume of the packages brave is sending and receiving from home.durrhttps://brave.com/popular-browsers-first-run/https://brave.com/brave-tops-browser-first-run-network-traffic-results/
>>84472803Its a fox not a lion idiot
>>84473303>Cries about bloatware >Uses fucking Vivaldi You're fucking dumb
>>84479503That's not how money works you absolute subzero IQ fucking idiot.Because 1 dollar = 75 rubles or whatever does not mean a dollar buys 75 time more stuff in russia.
>>84479503As an anon who went to mexico before covid know that i was able to buy delicious tacos with everything on it from a corner house/restaurant for only 6 pesos eachThat was when 19 pesos equaled $1 USD
>>84482641No but it's still worth more.
