Indeed, there are many
other Chromium browsers out there.
Which reminds me, has
anybody else taken Vivaldi for a spin?
I love how customisable
it is but so far my screen-reader experience is a bit cluttered, and not all
controls behave as I think they should.
It should be tweakable
Well its the latest chromium alternertive.
FFull add blocking and extra security.
I do caution users, in the article link I pasted above the eventual plan
for brave is to replace all adds from other's websites and tracks with its own
adds and trackers or at least thats what I read.
Some antimalware and security tools detect brave as malware though they say
Reviews seem generally good now, but I am not sure.
If this brouser is replacing adds with its own, there is no garantee that
eventually you trade a malware free environment with using another echosystem,
with its own adds, trackers, and malware thrown in.
This is a really new project, its not the first chromium sourced brouser
and it will not be the last.
One other thing to note, its not a main stay brouser like chrome, firefox,
ie and edge, so interface wize while it may be good, a supported brouser that
is supported is better than one which may have issues.
Now saying that with nvda that probably doesn't matter as such because of
the fact nvda itself is basically a scripted program built using modern
techniques and using commen os access commands and apis.
But Its probable that if you run something like dolphin stuff you won't get
access and its unlikely that it would be supported by jaws or anything like
The thing I don't care for is trading all the malware I have to deal with
now with eventually another person's adds.
If I am ready to do this, I may as well uninstall my antimalware software
and turn off my firewall.
Users do have glowing reviews right now but its new.
Now if you want to try it you probably won't have any issues doing so
however who knows.
Ports come and go.
It may have some big names developing it but look at
CCleaner is a good program, it used to be really good till piriform went
Now ccleaner is its own malware, and sadly it does do malwareish things,
trying to have quickclean run, and a entire load of other things I have to
modify my ini file every day or so.
Its interface or at least the main interface panel is total crap access
And it comes with avast which is total crap access wize to.
I used to use programs with dvdvideosoftware they used to have google
spyware in them and I don't care about google because I use that but later it
had conduit then opencandy, then a lot of other junk and I had to get rid of
it and reformat my system to get rid of all the extra junkware.
Sadly it seems to be the rage, any software that is bundled with any
software is pritty much malware because most of the time the user has not
requested that software so its malware.
THats another issue with brave, it does not block google adds or google
trackers, so we know who is funding brave now.
Now if brave got cash from doubleclick, yahoo adds and all the other add
makers to have their adds unblocked then we have a problem.
I know that with waterfox I have full control, and I have blocked google
and all sort of extras.
