Thanks! We do have a creator account, but I've never jumped through the considerable hoops required to withdraw from it. Doing that today. Thanks for the reminder.

Folks are still happy with Brave Browser?

BillG:   Anything new to report after a year of use?

Should I expect Brave to be noticeably faster than Vivaldi?  
 

I'm still using it on mobile, occasionally on desktop. As far as speed, the main difference I see is related to the background loading of ads, trackers, etc. that it blocks. I like Brave's ad-blocking a lot better than any Chrome or FF plugin I've tried. But on desktop I hardly ever load any sites with any substantial ad content.

I can't comment on speed comparisons, but I use it regularly.

 

I reported early on that it was much faster, but that lasted just a few days until (I guess) the cache got larded with memes and it became indiscernible from Chrome.

Hi Bill,

Apologies for the "necro-post" 

I've been using brave since it first start and have accumulated 131 BAT tokens, I'd like to "tip" these to RP but wanted to check and make sure you have a wallet on uphold that will receive these?

admittedly I have been "tipping" RP from my other devices in varying amounts but it has only just crossed my mind to actually see if you do still use uphold and transfer the funds to your "fiat" account.

Thanks for providing RP, It's my main source of music.

I've been trying out the Brave browser â€” a Chromium fork (project derived from the same code base as Google Chrome) that promotes itself as being fast & secure, with built-in ad blocking.

A rather bizarre business model, and — as you might guess — not at all popular with ad-based content providers.

As somebody who sees advertising as a failing relic of the past and inherently evil, I'm not so bothered by that :-).  I can understand how others would be, though.

Anyway, I like it a lot so far. I don't visit many sites that carry advertising, but that aspect seems to work well — and it is indeed fast. Faster by far than anything else I use. 

If you download it via the link above, and use it for 30 days, we get some sort of bonus or bounty payment or booby prize. 

If you like it, and pass the link around, use this one:  https://brave.com/rad707

I'd be interested in any feedback.
 

I just visited a forum that's notoriously slow. It's run by Amazon and for some reason it takes 47 seconds to load in Chrome (I just timed it). 13 Seconds in Brave.
 

That's consistent with the improvements I'm seeing. Pretty impressive.

The "ads" appear as notifications, not actual on-page ads. Easy to dismiss. The one I've seen so far was for a forum in Oslo, next week. Sorry, can't make it.
