Yeah I think the BAT+Uphold or whatever it's called rules that require you to upload your ID for under $10k is scammy bullshit.

I appreciate the offer man, we were close that one time. It's a whole lot of communication and coordination that's not worth it now imo.

The BAT accumulates, you don't need to give it away. If you have 15 BAT you can verify a wallet with the browser and then send it wherever, but personally I just donate to myself. Costs a little bit that way though.

Not sure, but if I recall correctly, the idea was that every month you had to give up your earned BAT (by looking at their ads) to the sites you visited (by default or by your selective settings) and they had to have registered. And then it would revert to zero.

I may be wrong.

I only use dark mode. This CSS needs tweaking.

I collected a tonne of BAT (long expired) for SaidIt. We never did get it figured out.

I suppose we could try that again /u/d3rr now that I can actually recieve text messages and register for SaidIt?

I can't afford products. But I can switch back to Brave.

In night mode the text on entry is white on white.

What I was going to say though is ask if you ever look at the ads for BAT on the Brave browser? It's pretty neat, like being paid $5-$10 a month to look at interesting ads. I use some of those products now.

Define better. Privacy-wise, custom Firefox is better if you know what you're doing. Mozilla can do some shenanigans regardless, like that extension fiasco.

Brave is better out-of-box, you can install extensions and modify it as much as you can do with Chrome. It's more compatible and convenient than Firefox (customized and uncustomized).

It's good middle-ground for privacy and compatibility/usability.

Browsers: Which one to choose? by [deleted] in Browsers

[–][deleted] 2 insightful - 1 fun2 insightful - 0 fun3 insightful - 1 fun -  (0 children)

It doesn't sound appealing but some are actually cool ads. I've actually ended up using one of the services advertised, BlockFi that pays interest on crypto and many others I bookmarked in case I was interested later. They pop up, max 5 an hour (you can set how many you want or turn it off). Little black popup boxes and if you click on them, you go to a webpage for the product or service.

I'm on an android phone for all of my browsing. I was using Blockada in pair with Brave since my ad blocking options are limited but Blockada has been slow af lately for some reason so I ditched it.

The Browser Monopoly by [deleted] in Browsers

[–]happysmash27 1 insightful - 1 fun1 insightful - 0 fun2 insightful - 1 fun -  (0 children)

Product choices like these can be traced directly back to who provides the biggest web browsers, and why they’re doing it. Google is fundamentally in the business of advertising, which is why they have absolutely no interest in limiting ad impressions, or preventing the sharing of your personal data. I suspect that this is primarily why they don’t bother with password manager features, either, though it’s an open question.*

Wait, Chrome seriously doesn't have a built-in password manager?? Is that why people use weird separate ones? Every browser I have used for a very long time now (Firefox then Palemoon then Waterfox) has had this feature.

Speaking of which, I really wish more people would use Waterfox and Palemoon. They are falling behind with support for a few websites (especially those from Google), but they have support for amazing features I am unwilling to go without, usually through XUL addons, including tree style tabs, a roomy bookmarks toolbar, and support for extra toolbars for addons.

Alternatively, Firefox could just add back in XUL addons. These were a primary reason I switched to Firefox in the first place, but now Firefox is just turning into a lame Chrome clone in regards to addons :( .

A Conspiracy To Kill IE6 by [deleted] in Browsers

Instead of outright dropping IE6 support, what if we just threatened to?

Hey, isn't that exactly what Google Docs has been doing to "old versions" of "Firefox" (which for me are actually just Waterfox or Palemoon)? They always say it will be unsupported but it never actually happens (which I am glad, because I am not willing do use a browser with a horrible, barely-customisable UI with no extra toolbar support, roomy bookmarks toolbar, or even decent tree style tabs).

He responded “Oh, I just figured you guys copied the banner that Google Docs had put up.” I was confused. How could Google Docs have beaten us to the punch on this? I opened up Google Docs in IE6 and sure enough, a banner very much like ours was showing at the top.

Wait, what?? Is Google Docs seriously that old‽‽

Didn't we already go down this road with IE? Smells like a lawsuit.

I think that you couldn't uninstall it, but you could delete some of its files so you couldn't open it anymore.

Well, I can still uninstall it on my Linux machine, or on Android or Mac, or any other non-Windows machine for that matter. So what is actually the case, is that people won't be able to uninstall its new Edge browser on Windows machines.

With Windows Updates you don't control your computer, Microsoft does.

Vivaldi browser and open-source by [deleted] in Browsers

Vivaldi is really cool, a friend of mine uses it everyday. But since i'm already in a serious relationship with firefox i just can't handle another genius browser at this time for my main browsing interests. Its a nice backup solution reminder for me anyways:

Now i will uninstall chromium on my clients and test vivaldi once more.
