Skip to comments.Brave Browser (Vanity)
Posted on 09/30/2016 4:38:21 PM PDT by RetiredTexasVet
Started using the "Brave" browser today after downloading and setting it up last night.
Browser was written by the programmer who wrote Firefox but who was later forced out at Mozilla by the queers, freaks and perverts for supporting traditional marriage.
Browser blocks all ads and popups which makes browsing quick and efficient again.
Not a lot of instructions but most of the setup mirrors Firefox or is intuitive.
Can be obtained free from WWW.Brave.com
I have been using it on my iPhone for about three months.
It has problems with much more than five open tabs, but it is stopping the adware.
Just installed it a few hours ago, seems fast, havent used it much though.
IIRC it will permit some ads (you select?) but blocks anything you don’t want. The revenue from the ads goes into some sort of fund with some coming back to the user.
Probably totally wrong but that’s what I remember from looking at Brave’s site once upon a time.
Oh Thank you -thank you thank you — God Bless you . I will download IMMEDIATELY!! FREEPER ALERT!!!!
Just downloaded it. I like.
I just installed it and tried out Breibart and got a nasty message about trojans.
I had to use Task Manager to cancel it.
OMG __ IT IS REAL!!! Thank you LORD!!!
Also check out TOR Browser. I hear it’s fantastic. I have been using dinosaurs. — NO MAS!!
I downloaded it last night too, and so far it is, how do you say, the bomb? Fast, clean, easy to use.
Based on the Brave About page, it looks like their goal is to monetize all of your page clicks:
“The web has become a different place. With the ad-tech ecosystem out of control, users have revolted and blocking ads has become the new weapon of choice for improving their browsing speed, safety and privacy. Unfortunately, blocking alone results in a race to the bottom where nobody wins. Without the ability for content creators to earn money for their efforts, users could be left with fewer sites to browse, relegated to hand-picked content from controlled sources.
Brave aims to transform the online ad ecosystem with micropayments and a new revenue-sharing solution to give users and publishers a better deal, where fast, safe browsing is the path to a brighter future for the open web.”
Also, their goal isn’t to block ads, but simply to replace other companies’ ads with their OWN ads!
Basically this “browser” looks like an advertising platform that’s attempting to monetize other people’s content.
I downloaded it this afternoon, and have been playing with it. It still isn’t clear to me how the ad sharing works. When I turn it on, it tells me I need to contribute $5 since I haven’t viewed any of their approved ads yet. (I did select the ad version instead of the ad-free). So I turned it back off.
I don’t want to get involved with bitcoin at this point, so I am willing to split the kickback between FR and one or two other sites if I can figure out how to do that at no cost to me.
Not entirely accurate. You can select an ad free version which they indicate they will eventually charge for. Or you can go with the ad sharing version, where they skim some revenue off the top, send some of it to the site, and kick back some to the viewer. (But see my other post just above.)
I do not yet see it in downloads.
Though i am very new at this. I see something called ‘brave browse’ but that is from 2014 and was renamed.
Will keep checking on this though. Thanks.
