Brave browser

Has anyone tried the Brave Browser? I'm giving it a try to see if it's better than Firefox. It has an ad blocker built in and its holding the ads off.

Nothing yet, is equal to, much less, better than Firefox.


I have Brave Browser loaded on my 18.3 Cinnamon


I hate the style they have chosen for it.
it is using "uBlock Origin" as a builtin Addon without you having to install the Addon.


I fail to see how that can make it a "better browser".


it does not handle Bookmarks properly, and that right there, kills any interest that I have in any browser, period.


Firefox is the only browser on the market that handles Bookmarks properly, allows me to edit them, to export them, the way I do so that any browser can import the bookmarks and use them.


Worse yet, it does not respond to my keyboard commands to use it like Firefox always has, from the beginning. Coffin nail #2 for any browser.

The bookmarks are a bit sloppy as they're all heaped together. I do like the TOR feature. It's running on Windows7Pro.

on the road, I have no access to Winders


just my two lappys....


garsh, can't tell you how spoiled I am with the SSD and 12gB RAM on the ASUS lappy



when the SSD lappy crashed a few days ago,
I had to use the ancient Acer on Xcfe, 2gB RAM, slow spinning HDD
that was a very painful experience...... how easy we get spoiled with the good stuff.

I use it but not as my main browser. It's ok though. Pretty new so needs time to get the edges smoothed out. It's on my phone as well.

Vivaldi, with the Sprucemarks add-on for bookmarks.

Some scientists claim that hydrogen, because it is so plentiful, is the basic building block of the universe. I dispute that. I say there is more stupidity than hydrogen, and that is the basic building block of the universe.

been using Brave for a few months now. overall satisfied, except for the awful Bookmarking.
Incomprehensible procedure to add bookmarks, needs much work.

If it wont' work like Firefox, IMO, it is junk.
don't care how many over "neat features" it might have.


Bookmarks are the most important part of a browser, and if the developers can't devote enough time to make them work, they have totally failed in their efforts.

Firefox didn't work like Firefox in the beginning.

Firefox bookmarks has always worked the same for me, unless the very first couple of years it was different?
