I wasn’t aware of brave until fairly recently but it’s a good little browser, the latest version runs very smoothly indeed. I do wish some of the settings were expanded though, like the ability to whitelist cookies for certain sites while blocking all others or even a toggle option in that little shields drop-down to quickly turn them on or off.
It allows me to read the Daily Mash without my phone exploding, which is more than Chrome is capable of.
I run with the Samsung stock browser (Chromium mod) and Adguard Content Blocker, plus Disconnect for privacy, and it works very well for me. I can’t imagine surfing without ad-blockers now.
