    Yeah I only use Firefox with arkenfox user.js. Plus it’s maintained by trannies so it’s never going to fail unless they kill themselves of course.

          The crawler is built into the browser, not the search. Respoting the important part:
          >By “data” we mean search queries (...) the URLs of pages visited in the browser, time spent on those pages,
          AKA Everything you do on Brave is tracked by Brave unless you hit a page with robots.txt anti-tracking script.

              this
              the only good and real criticism of brave:

              everything else is FUD
              but nonetheless its why im sticking with firefox

        thanks for sharing. Crazy how many copey "LE TEAM BRAVE!!1!" homosexuals there are on this board. I jumped off the browser the second they had those in-browser ads with black people in them.
        oh and the cringe crypto.

        And there's great Chromium forks that are not google-related like Vivaldi or you can always just use basic b***h Chromium itself.

          Vivaldi is non-free while Brave is FOSS, also Vivaldi is severely bloated and runs like ass.

            Vivaldi is 95% FOSS. The remaining 5% is the UI and you can edit it in a text file. Dead serious: easiest edit in the world. https://vivaldi.com/blog/vivaldi-browser-open-source/

    >your data
    I know you are capitalizing on the room temp IQ of the average bot lurker, but the article says nothing like that whatsoever. There are other avenues to discredit Brave, but why lie? It's about Brave Search, and it's not "our data" it's Wikipedia's data.
