PSA - Brave "privacy" browser is malware 


@tessaracht there's more to it than that!

they ship an option that blocks ads and replaces them with their own ads. they use a cryptocurrency (???) called "basic attention tokens" to track how well their ads do. and, to top it all off: according to wikipedia, "In a future version of the browser, the company intends to adopt a pay-to-surf business model."
