    I followed your link and installed Brave. Settings and operation seem like any other browser, but I don't see how it will pay linux.org for using it. I don't want their rewards for accepting ads (kinda weird when they include an ad blocker). Anyway, I'll tinker with it for 30 days, at least. I also like Vivaldi.

    Cheers

    As you know, Wizard, this has already been fixed with the latest update to Firefox. I was just curious. Why is there a need to use an adblocker when Firefox has it's own privacy protection function? Mine is set to strict and I don't have any issues with websites breaking.

    You are absolutely right! I only use Chrome now and again when listening to a music video on YouTube because there is a add on called Volume Master that lets me boost the volume nice and loud.

    I use Firefox most of the time because I love it's built in privacy tracking protection and reading mode. Firefox continue working with all websites I visit, where Chrome or Chromium stops working until the net update or even later on some sites.
