Lou Schneider said:I like the Brave browser. It completely eliminates 3rd party ads and trackers and delivers clean, uncluttered web pages without the need for any add-ons.
And it has an optional Brave Rewards program where you can view selected ads to accumulate credits you can then send to websites you like as a replacement for the lost income from the ads you didn't see.
Lou Schneider said:Yes, Rewards is optional. If you don't feel guilty about depriving your favorite websites of ad revenue it's your choice.
In Brave it bypasses loading all the ad links which is way faster
Alfa38User said:This may be true BUT the empty boxes are still clickable , so the links must still be downloaded, just not the contents of the ad itself. I did note it is faster but..... What am I missing, if anything??

Fogetty said:the VPN is just a proxy server. Do those changes have an effect on privacy/security? Just wondering.... : :-\
