It's funny how some people think a new browser will make their internet use "private".

If I was the NSA and wanted to find subversives, it's just the sort of thing I'd offer.
They would fall for it immediately.

I have been using Opera which also is based on Chrome, for several years.

One thing I have noticed is, it does not play well with some websites.

As an example, I was trying to used United Airlines flight tracker yesterday.

I got a notice my browser was not supported, and it recommended Chrome,
Firefox, or Safari.

Used to get same notice from Kroger website too.

I downloaded Brave browser, and it seems to load pages much faster than Opera.

So far so good, time will tell how it plays with websites I had problems with
using opera.

Dissenter is a fork of Brave.

So I just installed Dissenter. It asked to import bookmarks from the "Old version" which turns out was Brave. It looks just like Brave with the same setup tab, ad blocking, cookies, scripts, etc.

I'm going to check it out. Thanks!

Okay, it's just like Brave except it allows you to comment on any website if you first create an account with Dissenter and log in. Not sure I want to comment on a bunch of websites but I'll use it for a while and see if I like it.

Very fast, just like Brave.

====

Went to Gateway Pundit with Dissenter. Bunch of ads down the right side. None with Brave.

===
Edit 7/19

I removed Dissenter. No advantage over Brave for me at least. Somehow it managed to turn on javascript blocking which disabled the SB toolbar for posting. Took me a while to find the problem.
Thanks for this post. I've been having issues downloading pictures and other data to SB. Also, I used to open links directly from my email but Dissenter doesn't allow me to open links directly. I have to open a private window no matter what the link is. This is bothersome so I may give Brave a try.

How to you know that SB isn't the NSA?

But seriously, the NSA knows anything it wants to know about you, me, your mom, and your uncle's dog. The 4th Amendment is a mirage!
