I know I’ll get downvoted for saying this but, imo this is a great feature, I have always wanted to blacklist some websites from search but there was no reliable way, sites like quora, pinterest and w3schools.
I know there are extensions, but this is better, I don’t like brave either but they’ve been adding useful features to brave search, and well it seems like a pretty good alternative to other search engines as of now.
I don’t have much context, why would you get downvoted? Sounds like a good feature to me.
it seems (to me anyway) that almost anything related to brave that gets posted on lemmy gets downvoted quite a bit, this post is an example. (although, I may just be overthinking it.)
I’ve seen this in other places as well, especially hackernews. Why is that?
I guess people just don’t like brave because of the crypto stuff, and they’ve also done some things in the past like getting a fork (that removed BAT) shut down, adding affiliate links to URLs etc.
IIRC The fork was shut down because it called itself Braver, thus allegedly infringing the copyright on the brand Brave.
Agreed, a bad thing doesn’t have to make a good thing bad
I prefer Andisearch
