    Never really trusted Brave myself. Didn't have a specific reason why, but something felt off when I tried it a year ago. Always assumed it stemmed from my general distrust of Chrome, which I also have rarely used.

    Same here. Somehow the idea of a browser paying you to view ads, just didn't seem right. I don't want to see any ads. Url manipulation kinda sealed the deal for me. No love lost as I never tried Brave.

    Oh they are Brave alright. Bravely deceitful. Boldly going where no browser trying to strengthen their reputation should ever go.

    Ha! I've tried them in the past, but my distrust of Chrome coupled with that pay for ads and my data going to an undefined place to make it more secure were kinda deal breakers for me also.
