I just found out that Duckduckgo has a browser app
DuckDuckGo Browser for Android
I'm trying it out now.

Pretty sure there's an Apple version too.

We're not going to be able to get away from most of the big tech companies. Not until someone makes serious headway with alternatives which I have always been in favor of, since way back in the late 80s.



He was CEO at Mozilla until they fired him. The Chromium is not Chrome. Is the basis for Chrome and most other alternative browsers. I checked quite a few before picking Brave and most use the Chromium as the basis. It will have to do for now.

Absolutely can't stand when companies shove their stage 5 Trump Derangement Syndrome down our throats. Politics shouldn't be a workforce ethic, EVER. But.. as long as they keep their actual browser/code politics-free, then we're good. I'm a heavy user of Nightly 64-bit (beta) browser.

Yes I'm aware of that. Remember the good old days before Google when Webcrawler actually gave you information you were looking for and Netscape was a fast browser?

As expected, the search for a new email client is somewhat more challenging, especially considering how many different email accounts I have to manage across so many different kinds of services.

At the moment, Claws Mail is looking like the best option, but I'm still working out how I would want to arrange the mail store in MH format, nail down the details of migrating my existing emails from Thunderbird and making sure everything works properly, is secure and doesn't replace one set of problems with another.

To reiterate, my decision to flee from Mozilla has nothing to do with politics and everything to do with ensuring I don't place my trust in organizations that are demonstrably unworthy of it. Likewise with Google, any social media company or any business based on surveillance capitalism.

Sometimes "free" is just too expensive.

Ideology and freedom aside for a while. Brave is shrinking tabs. How in hell am I supposed to use it?
Geek it up to make them scroll like firefox and I may use it for the next two decades if we are allowed to by the CCP. I'll be like 'Come and take it!'
And how is it different apart from the Tor mode? Will you use it all the time? Do the sites work then? It takes a brain to tune a browser.
"Ask me every time" firefox option was the most effective tool so they got rid of it to make more cash on us. You'd see each cookie request popping up separately. Accept, deny, deny, deny, deny and you knew what's stored. Now all browsers are like android apps. Accept all requirements, app will know your contacts, can reach your microphone or... you cant use the app. Unless you can root the phone which is not the case for 99.9 % of people

Brave has built-in Tor connectivity. I use it and have a wallet for my BAT but recently the payouts have been abysmal so I've shut off ads. You can also use BAT to tip websites that participate, a neat way to fund sites that get attacked and whose payment processors refuse to work with anymore.

I've never had a problem with Brave and highly recommend it.


Sending you a messsage..........need some info.......

what are you talking about? It works the same for me as Chrome and Firefox?

Well, that was easy. Brave is now my new browser, Firefox has been uninstalled from all my devices and a 26-year legacy has come to an abrupt end.


Doing the same. Likewise, been a Firefox guy for as long.

Mad respect, btw, for your years of honest and fair consistency.
