Another reason not to use the Brave browser
Facebook, Twitter Trackers Whitelisted by Brave Browser
Thanks for the heads up.
@LibertyPaulM how very "brave" of them to enable surveillance capitalism
@LibertyPaulM uninstalled from my phone. Back on Firefox mobile now
@LibertyPaulM AFAIK this is so that users can log into these sites I think? If they're fully blocked you can't login
@LibertyPaulM (though my personal recommendation is still Firefox / Icecat with uBlock Origin)
@grufwub mmm I’ve always used Firefox with Ublock Origin tuned to nuclear and I never had issues logging in when I was still on the sites
@LibertyPaulM uBlock (and anything using these blocklists) AFAIK sets a lot of websites like these to no 3rd party tracking -- so it works on the website but it blocks the tracker if found anywhere else.
Brave could be doing this? Or maybe I'm being too optimistic :p
@grufwub god knows. Any browser that substitutes a website’s ads for its own probably shouldn’t get the benefit of any doubt though
@LibertyPaulM I can see where they're coming from to some extent so I don't have too much beef with the company, but the fact they base it on Chromium is where I draw the line. This Chromium monopoly is getting to be far too overpowering
