    The only downside is that there’s a business model involved and they were caught injecting their own referral codes for affiliate links.

    I don’t have any additional concerns about Brave that are any different than other Web browsers.

    I use Brave a lot on my phone. On my computer I use a wider variety of browsers.

    I just installed Brave and am trying it out. It has been described as lighter than Chromium but using the Chromium base. But I have it on an MX install instead of antiX.

    Brave is lighter than Chrome and one of the most interesting of the newer group of Web browsers. The other one I find useful is Vivaldi. The Vivaldi browser descends from Opera, I believe, but recently Opera changed to use the Chromium rendering mechanism common to Chrome, Chromium, Brave and Vivaldi.

    Yes, there are a lot of new browsers lighter than Chrome. But I have found that Chromium is pretty light by itself. And I have become accustomed to Chrome and Chromium. But I’ll play with Brave for a while longer to see what it offers.

    @Seaken64:

    Just keep in mind all resources count.
    Badwolf, for example, is terrific with conservative memory usage but it’s currently limited by some basic services missing, bookmarks, modifying the fonts is not easily done and CPU usage is the apparent consequence of low memory use.

    My point is that the best tools are both usable and efficient. Badwolf may get there but it’s not quite at that point quite yet.

    Bravo and Vivaldi are good examples that are worth more examination.
