    that guy has a heavy accent and if I've learned anything from James Bond and Die Hard 1, it's that the bad guys always have heavy accents.

    :hmm:

    Have had it for a while because, after I upgraded my macbook OS to El Capitan, Safari started spinning pinwheels with Youtube - while Brave played quickly and cleanly.

    I have been using Opera for a few months, mostly because it has a free VPN. Makes it much harder to track anything

    The first review of Brave Browser I looked at said this.

    https://www.lifehacker.com.au/2017/09/hands-on-with-the-brave-browser/

    That's enough to ensure I'll never use it.

    all kidding aside, any really good AdBlock extension seems like it would do the same thing for whatever browser you use.

    I use Chrome and don't see ads.

    It is a badass browser, I hope very few people like it so that sites don't change their behavior for it.
