勇敢 Brave browser [Privacy pt.1]

So I decided to claim my online privacy back. Thinking about how to start, I figured out that Google inc is most likely the worst when it comes to collect user data. I decided that my first step would be to find a replacement for Google Chrome, as it more or less tracks anything you do, even when closed.

After some research and testing of browsers, I picked a project on GitHub called Brave browser. Brave has adblocking built-in, using the same lists as adblock and adblock plus per default. Brave has the option to add more lists based on country, and the ability to add your own url that you want to block. It however doesn't have an option to add other lists to its adblock feature yet. Hopefully it will be added. I did personally add the suggestion to their GitHub page to add this function, but well, we will see. I can live with it, because when thinking about it, that's a small price to pay for online privacy. Brave also blocks tracking pixels and tracking Cookies. HTTPS Anywhere and what seems to be "NoScript" built-in also. The more I use Brave the more I like it. So for now this is my main browser.
Later on I was looking into browser fingerprinting, that advertisement companies/governments use to uniquely identify your browser. You can test your browser at panopticlick. This Brave also takes care of, if you enable "fingerprinting protection. This browser will fail on that test, but there is a reason, in order for sites not to be able to identify you based on fingerprinting, they have given all their users the same fingerprints. Clever.
