Brave Web Browser, all the power of Chrome, without all the spying

I have been using Chrome on my Linux laptop at work, but tonight I installed the Brave browser, and after a few hours, have decided I love it, and as soon as I got home, I made it the default browser on my Mac too. I fully intend to install the iOS version on my phone today too.

Chrome is fast, but Google tracks everything you do. Not just every search you run at Google.com, but every website you visit, every password you save, every link you click. Brave is based on the open-source Chromium browser, same as Chrome (and Apple Safari, Microsoft Edge, Opera – basically everything except Firefox). Most Chrome extensions and themes work with it. I only use 2 extensions, LastPass and Privacy Badger.

I was pleasantly surprised to find a number of websites at work just work faster and better under Brave, compared to Chrome. The Red Hat Jboss Fuse GUI doesn’t log me out after 10 minutes of inactivity anymore. Apparently that was a Chrome “feature” I didn’t know about, stopping JavaScript on backgrounded webpages after a few minutes. I am Pickled Tink!
