Why should I use brave browser vs firefox on linux or fennec/duckduckgo browsers on android?

Try Iceraven browser by the way, it’s the only one that supports custom extensions on Android.

Or Librewolf, which is closer to mainline.

Hi. I was a brave user, but after learning a few things, not anymore. What’s your opinion on the CEO?

i used brave as a secondary browser to ff for a while. i knew about eich at some point being involved in both mozilla and brave software, but didn’t know until recently that he is still CEO of brave. and in addition to opposing gay rights, also he has expressed his doubt in the legitimacy of the pandemic too. needless to say i use only ff and bromite (chromium fork for android) now. i couldn’t justify using software with a troubling history that has a perfectly fine substitute.

Yeah. I keep watching his twitter feed to see what he says from time to time. It’s sad that he made a great browser, but he’s kind of a not good guy.

not only a web browser but also created javascript! that’s extra painful to think about. :/

Yeah :/ It sucks that his browser is the only private browser with crypto at the moment.

Why would you want to have a crypto in your browser anyway?

No ads on Youtube (i.e., at least, without requiring an adblocker).

How is this better than using YouTube-dl?

For normies, … works just like chrome or firefox, without having to install any extensions / plugins, … there are no ads when watching the youtubes.

You can use Gnome Web, or even Bromite in android if you’re a fan.
