Re: Brave browser
Hi Jamestoggle quoted messageShow quoted text
The folders Program Files X86 and Program Files relate to whether an
application is 32 or 64 bit. You get these 2 folders on machines that use a
64-bit operating system. A 64-bit machine can still process 32-bit
applications, such as NVDA for example, which is why you see the NVDA
application under the X86 version of the Program Files folder. If you were
to have a look at a machine that uses a 32-bit operating system, , you would
see only a Program Files folder because it is only capable of running 32-bit

I could be wrong about this so please correct me somebody if so, but I think
that the suffix X 86 for program files points to user installed
applications. The original program files points to applications installed
by Windows. However in most installation wizards I have used you can choose
where to install files.

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.
say its false.
that eventually you trade a malware free environment with using another
echosystem, with its own adds, trackers, and malware thrown in.
and it will not be the last.
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.
of the fact nvda itself is basically a scripted program built using modern
techniques and using commen os access commands and apis.
get access and its unlikely that it would be supported by jaws or anything
with now with eventually another person's adds.
software and turn off my firewall.
however who knows.
trying to have quickclean run, and a entire load of other things I have to
modify my ini file every day or so.
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.
software is pritty much malware because most of the time the user has not
requested that software so its malware.
trackers, so we know who is funding brave now.
makers to have their adds unblocked then we have a problem.
and all sort of extras.
