Brave is basically malware to sell the companies cryptocurrency and ads. Their main investor is Peter Thiel if you need a reason not to trust them. The dude sits on Facebooks board and creates tools for ICE. Also, people forget but when Brave was questioned about their product on Github, they requested to be removed from PTIO because they didn’t want to face scrutiny.
As far as waterfox and others like it, they are far less secure than Firefox and it’s been talked about numerous times on this forum and reddit.
I agree with you that ownership matters. Maybe that should be more heavily weighted when evaluating answers to QtASK (Questions to ask ALL Privacy Services) @danarel ? IMHO, even minority ownership by a questionable individual or company is reason to be concerned.
Firefox: because they good for privacy more than google chrome
Tor: because it help your privacy by adding “VPN” and hide you and it build on firefox because its more good than chrome (for privacy)
they are same as firefox so yeah
for myself i say good but yes as some users said here the only bad thing about it is “BAT” and their new module in ads (again, i see it good but some ppl concerned here)
You can use multi browsers (good) or use multi profiles of firefox about:profiles (not good as multi browsers but still) or use the multi account container as you said (not good as multi profiles but still) but some info will remain the same as your addons info or your setup info so it kinda will help more to fingerprint you
I am heavily security focused. but there is a balance to be sought after.
take google for example, they have very secure systems, but we cannot just everyone recommend to use google services just because they could be a bit more secure then a smaller hoster.
Brave is the most private browser in the study but does not consider the use of BAT (Basic Attention Tokens) adverts to support the browser. Brave phones home the least.
Firefox collects telemetry data collection even when unchecked. I don’t know if turning telemetry to false stops this collection.
I will keep using Firefox.
Brave looks like an option if you don’t mind The BAT advertising.
The others Google Chrome, Apple Safari, Microsoft Edge and Yandex I would avoid.
