I’m using Firefox as my main browser. However, I often need to use a chromium-based browser. Brave has been a really good option for me. Recently, I’ve just given Vivaldi a try and I loved it. Hence, I’m curious if it’s better privacy-respecting alternative to Brave? What do you guys think about it?

    Brave is a very shady company. They were caught adding their own affiliate links, promoting sites that never took part in brave donation program (by showing an icon and people sent money to /dev/null)

    Personally I use Vivaldi. So far they did not make any fuckups. I also really like novative UI: pinned sites, configuration of panels, etc.

      Really? I thought Brave is open source , so anyone can see it source code …

        They also have their own crypto and by default it means they are shady 😄

      Why not just use Chromium, or ungoogled-chromium if you really want to get away from Google?

        Yeah, you’re right. I’ve used ungoogled-chromium. It’s good, really. But sometimes, it’s quite complicated to set up. And, It doesn’t have those nice features like Vivaldi
