Reminder why switching.social does NOT recommend using Brave:

-Brave is a for-profit ad sales and cryptocurrency promotion company, funded by venture capital firms. Its primary purpose is to make money, not protect privacy.

-Top of the list of Brave's VC owners is Founders Fund, which is Peter Thiel's company ( web.archive.org/web/2019083116 )

-Peter Thiel is also the head of Palantir, which makes its money by spying on the general public ( bloomberg.com/features/2018-pa )
