Brave " A New Browser"
« on: June 04, 2017, 08:40:57 AM »
I am currently testing Brave.  Has built in ad blocker, very fast.

So far so good.  (running Windoze 10 64 bit)

Should one a man of wisdom meet
who points out faults and gives reproof,
who lays a hidden treasure bare,
with such a sage should one consort.
Consorting so is one enriched
and never in decline.

How does it compare to the functionality of Chrome. I like chrome because I can access my sign ons, passwords and bookmarks from any computer I log in to.

Does it have the ability to easily block videos and audio that automatically start when you open a page?
Man’s greatness is so obvious that it can even be deduced from his wretchedness, for what is nature in animals we call wretchedness in man, thus recognizing that, if his nature is today like that of the animals, he must have fallen from some better state which was once his own.

Never heard of it until you mentioned it.
I kind of wish I had known about it, I just switched from firefox to chrome yesterday... firefox is dead to me now with them disabling pretty much all useful function that I need for work and device management... and unlike 5 years ago, firefox is now slower than IE.
Had I not spent all day getting chrome and plugins all setup and configured, I would have given it a try.
I might fire up a VM and tinker with it. I'm not a google fan... they are spying, leftard bastards and I don't like patronizing them in any way. But the chrome plugin availability and development is spectacular at this point

I have been giving Brave a pretty solid workout.  Please note I also am on a new laptop and now running the upgraded Windoze 10 X64.  It has been bullet proof so far on all that I have run.  I would like to spend more time but I am currently on dead line to get on the road for an extended trip. 

I will be off line for a protracted period of time. 

I am happy to be able to move away from Chrome as it no longer supported flash player.   So far Brave does not have that liability.
