    welp... 2 pretty big shortcomings of Brave browser for iOS:

    1. you can no longer earn BAT: https://brave.com/rewards-ios/
    2. only bookmarks sync across devices (desktop->mobile)...browsing history, passwords, etc., do not; these do with android, but is apparently in the works for iOS

    I use Brave, Protonmail, and duckduckgo

    Vivaldi isn't a bad browser either, they are built for privacy as well

    They are essential

    On my tablet I use Brave and the duckduckgo browser (they are working on one for desktops)

    Google already knows my darkest secrets so I don't care anymore

    Crazy how desensitized I became when it comes to big companies stealing our personal information. I guess comfort is just way more important to me lol.

    Nah, I was saying, I'm sure IT IS worth it for the extra encryption and benefits that come with it

    Fair price too

    It is. Honestly I prefer simplicity to websites like that.
    Anyhow It's a really good browser. I'm using a strong laptop now but that browser ran fast on my older PC back when Firefox had changed up and when Chrome ate up the CPU. So yeah, Pale Moon is bestie haha.

    Brave is cool but you can lockdown Firefox better if you grind.
