Brave browser

What a great browser and switching from chrome feels like you are still using chrome but the brave browser is top top stuff

Anyone else using it ?

Just tried it and it fells like a combination of Edge and Chrome. It's quick but I have a fast internet speed so it didn't seem so much quicker than what Edge is as my default apart from the ad heavy sites. The impressive bit is the Ad 'stripping' and I tried it on some very advert heavy sites and it works very well, so much so that it does make you wonder how they will get away with it in the long term? I see that their goal is to replace site's adverts with their own which isn't going to please a lot of website owners! I haven't looked into the monetary side of the browser or the 'tipping' for adverts much yet though.

Should give you an option to import favourites and bookmarks on installation. If not click the three bars top right, go down to 'Bookmarks' and the menu that opens up should show 'Import Bookmarks and settings' and see if Safari is available.

Have been using it for last year or so. It's good but don't like them embedding Brave rewards and crypto wallets in to it. They've made them easier to disable now but didn't need to be added in the first instance.

I must admit I had never heard of Brave browser, but saw this link on my Google home page:

To view the link you have to Register or Login

The article may as well be written in Swahili, but thought it might mean something to you folks.

Jasiri amechukua hatua tu kuelekea kusaidia wavuti iliyogawanywa kwa kuwa kivinjari cha kwanza kutoa ujumuishaji wa asili na itifaki ya mitandao ya wenzao ambayo inakusudia kubadilisha kimsingi jinsi mtandao unavyofanya kazi. Teknolojia inaitwa IPFS (ambayo inasimama kwa Mfumo wa Faili ya InterPlanetary), itifaki ya usafirishaji isiyojulikana ambayo inaahidi kuboresha kiwango cha juu cha HTTP kwa kufanya yaliyomo haraka kufikia na kuhimili zaidi kutofaulu na kudhibiti.

Mchambuzi huyu kutoka TechCrunch hutoa muhtasari mzuri wa jinsi itifaki inavyofanya kazi. Lakini hapa kuna toleo fupi: wakati HTTP imeundwa kwa vivinjari kupata habari kwenye seva kuu, IPFS inaipata kwenye mtandao wa nodi zilizosambazwa. Makamu anaifananisha na kupakua yaliyomo kupitia BitTorrent, badala ya kutoka kwa seva kuu. Unaandika katika anwani ya wavuti kama kawaida, na mtandao unaweza kupata nodi zinazohifadhi yaliyomo unayotaka.

its certainly logical that it would be faster if it doesn't have to display the ads that are normally there. I suppose it depends if you lie everything pre-loaded or how much you like customising your experience.
