          Brave’s user base is hovering around 40 million right now, and steadily increases every month. Advertisers that buy BAT include the MLB, the NFL, BMW, Intel, IBM, and many other big names. Brave Software is involved in an active lawsuit against Google for their overreaching data harvesting patterns across international boundaries. Some companies are actually threatened by Brave in a real way, and that includes companies like Facebook, that exist solely to gather and sell as much user data as possible.

              They don’t have a unique user agent. The only reason clear metrics exist at all is because of rewards opt-ins and those who allow anonymous usage statistics, so the actual number of users could be considerably higher than the current count.

                  It is doubtful that most sites use that boolean (I’ve never come across it in the wild on any major ones), though maybe it will catch on enough that we can get a much clearer estimate of how many Brave users there actually are.

                  I’m talking about the comoany not the browser in and of itself. Brave just buys out companies and rebrands ther IP. Thats what brave VPN is thats what brave search is thats what brave browser is.

                  The browser is a hard fork of Chromium with an enormous amount of unique features at this point. They didn’t buy anything in that regard. Talk is heavily modified Jitsi, Search is heavily modified cliqz, and the VPN piggybacks on another service, for sure, and it is smart from a financial perspective at this point.

                  False. Run a network monitor and start a fresh install of brave
                  >no
                  Ok whatever then don’t claim things you cant verify

                  Not false at all. You can see every last bit of code on Brave’s GitHub repos, including all the bits and pieces related to connections at startup (along with roadmaps and issues related to such things), and exactly what their functions are. None of them transmit data about the user, unless the user has opted into anonymized usage stats or certain aspects of rewards. You can search the github repo for any domain you are curious about and see exactly what it’s for. The standard startup connections are related to updating the publishers/creators list, basic features on the internal rewards settings page (like price data updates for BAT) background images for the new tab page, along with updates for the ad-blocker and httpseverywhere. Some of these only occur on first run as well. All connections that could possibly occur at startup are clearly documented in Brave’s repos.

                  still no vertical tabs and proper grouping, into the trash it goes

                  There are extensions for that, just like with Firefox. If an extension isn’t enough, Vivaldi is a great browser with vertical tabs built-in, and they’re perfect.

                      That is 100% subjective and there are millions of people who would tell you that Edge’s tab features are shit compared to Vivaldi or [insert name of extension here].

        Objectively less spyware than almost all other similar services. You don’t even need to input anything but a handle to use it. No registration necessary.

          How’s that a proof of anything? They can still monitor your browser activities, record and machine process your voice, etc.
          They just don’t spy on a few things directly, instead they probably derive it from all the other stuff they collect indirectly.

            Not him, but right back at you – how’s that proof of anything? It’s not like no one is able to prove this, everything they’ve developed is FOSS and is on github.

            It doesn’t require registration, and it runs in your web browser, where you can watch network activity in the development console in real time if you wish. Run a network monitoring utility to see what happens when you use Zoom or Skype. Look at the registration requirement for both applications. Look at how Talk is woke af on Jitsi. I mean, come on now buddy.

              Brave needs to hire better people, none of this implies any kind of privacy. Especially not monitoring your own network activity when the video is delivered through a server.
              You’re so fuckdumb and ignorant it’s mildly irritating.

              Correct, but if Zucc just made an open source browser that’s better than all others, would you use it? Knowing the shady background that he has, would you not avoid it, afraid that things could change in the code eventually?

                      Well, Brendan Eich is a developer of Javascript, not that I’m a programmer but I know that Javascript in particular allowed browser fingerprinting to a greater extent and the like. I don’t believe you’re obligated as a webmaster to do this and use Javascript in a way to data mine your users, but again I’m not a programmer. I believe he’s also made some homophobic comments in the past. I’m not sure if he still holds those beliefs, though it doesn’t have anything to do with code or software.

                        Brendan Eich literally created Javascript (which is no small feat), and was crucial to Mozilla’s development of the gecko rendering engine, Mozilla suite, and ultimately Firefox. In regard to the homo stuff, he donated to an anti gay marriage prop, and he’s woke af as fuck, refuses to get jabbed, and shits on mask mandates with hard science.

                        /poo/ is for scrotebrains like you who make sweeping generalizations about everything because they’re incapable of exercising independent thought. Mask mandates are objectively useless, and the leaky vaccines available to the public are highly experimental and minimally effective at best. Government should also have no business in marriage, which is strictly a personal, religious choice, not an excuse to have a party or get gifts.

                        How’s that a proof of anything? They can still monitor your browser activities, record and machine process your voice, etc.
                        They just don’t spy on a few things directly, instead they probably derive it from all the other stuff they collect indirectly.

                        Show me where Brave does any of that https://github.com/brave or where jitsi does any of that. Their legally binding privacy policy disallows such behavior as well.

                        No, they don’t. Their rate of protection is lower because the virus mutated into delta and other strains and is more transmissible. And you know why that happened in the first place? Because not enough people got vaccinated in time, so mutations weren’t prevented.

                        Where are you getting all this from? I talked about covid in a single and not very long sentence about covid. Governments are in control of lives to various extents. I mean, when you drive down the road do you mindlessly drive on the wrong side and endanger other people’s lives? No, you don’t, you abide by the law and don’t do it. If more people acted like grown ups and got the vaccine themselves in time, maybe we wouldn’t still have to be dealing with this shit and they wouldn’t need to treat people like babies and force them into it for their own good and for the good of everyone else.

                        The ineffective vaccines aided in the promulgation of these variants you speak of, which most people are still not at risk of developing serious complications from in the first place. You’re also not taking into account the reality of herd immunity, and immunity in individuals who have been exposed and contracted it before.

                        Nope. They were effective against the original strain and since not enough people got vaccinated in time and millions of people all over the world got infected, guess what happened? The virus mutated since it had millions upon millions of chances to do so. This isn’t a surprise or anything new, it’s how it happened time and time again throughout human history.

                        It is a fact that ineffective vaccines contribute to the development of new virus variants, and it is no different with COVID:

                        Which is besides the point, that absolutely no one should be pressured into being injected with a substance should they wish not to be, regardless of the consequences. If someone is afraid of being harmed, they can simply not go outside. Fuck vaccine passes. Fuck bullshit vaccines. Fuck every mandate put in place to prevent the spread of this virus. I wish that the virus actually had a fatality risk that was something to worry about, so we could see a real fix for the overpopulation crisis, but unfortunately it’s a pussy ass virus that can’t get any real work done.

                        >Here, we use transmission experiments involving Marek disease virus (MDV) in chickens to show that vaccination with a leaky vaccine substantially reduces viral load in both vaccinated individuals and unvaccinated contact individuals they infect. Consequently, contact birds are less likely to develop disease symptoms or die, show less severe symptoms, and shed less infectious virus themselves, when infected by vaccinated birds. These results highlight that even partial vaccination with a leaky vaccine can have unforeseen positive consequences in controlling the spread and symptoms of disease.
                        What does this have to do with covid vaccines?

                        >Here we show experimentally that immunization of chickens against Marek’s disease virus enhances the fitness of more virulent strains, making it possible for hyperpathogenic strains to transmit. Immunity elicited by direct vaccination or by maternal vaccination prolongs host survival but does not prevent infection, viral replication or transmission, thus extending the infectious periods of strains otherwise too lethal to persist. Our data show that anti-disease vaccines that do not prevent transmission can create conditions that promote the emergence of pathogen strains that cause more severe disease in unvaccinated hosts.
                        Again, nothing to do with covid. Nor is it even mentioned.

                        They agree on vaccines needing to be modified for higher effectiveness against new strains.

Drugmakers are also keeping a close eye on mutants and are already formulating new vaccines that will be more effective if it turns out the original vaccines weaken too much. Paul Bieniasz says, this is not a crisis.

                        The articles cite a number of studies and scientists in the medical field. I presented you with journal links showing that ineffective vaccines have directly contributed to the promulgation of virus variants in general as well. Why do you think COVID would be any different? It’s not. Use just a little bit of deductive reasoning and common sense.

                      There’s some guy here who CPs a whole rant about Peter Thiel being an early investor in Brave when it was basically just Eich, and then uses that as a jumping off point to make all kinds of wild connections. It was entertaining for a while, but is extremely speculative and baseless (aside from the Thiel connection itself).

          There isn’t any actual source code. If you go to brave-core and search for "talk", the only things you’ll find are a JS API to query if this browser supports Brave Talk and some UI elements. It sounds like the real client is a proprietary JavaScript blob downloaded from Brave or their "partner" 8×8.

                  Right, but the point is the client isn’t part of the browser. It’s probably – I haven’t checked, ’cause I don’t use Brave, but maybe you can check – a blob of optimised JavaScript and WebAssembly. Unless I’m missing something on Brave and 8×8’s pages, you don’t get to see the exact source code that goes into the blob. And of course it’s not on your machine, so you have no guarantee that they won’t inject spyware into it at some point.

                Brave Talk doesn’t serve ads you mong, and BAT is one of the only ERC tokens tied to usable products in the real world. It’s the opposite of a scam in a space that is overloaded with lies and vaporware. Comparable tokens are OXT and SPDR, but the projects they’re tied to are limited in scope relative to Brave + BAT. Furthermore, Brave is 100% transparent about their purchasing and distribution of BAT, releasing regular reports on such activities. It is so not a scam, that long time BAT holders have (wrongfully) accused the team of being ‘price-agnostic’. It is so not a scam, that employees of Brave software get their bonuses and significant chunks of their salaries in BAT. There are very few projects in crypto with comparable levels of transparency and activity to Brave and BAT.

            Brave has pulled in a lot of patches from UG Chromium over the years, and they are the opposite of Google (they don’t collect user data, excepting users who explicitly opt in to anonymized usage data in order to help the dev team, and they don’t even share or sell that small amount of data they get).

              I’m talking about the comoany not the browser in and of itself. Brave just buys out companies and rebrands ther IP. Thats what brave VPN is thats what brave search is thats what brave browser is.

              This is a contradiction.

                Break it down you scrotebrain, and no, unless you’re just learning English, it is not a contradiction. Notice the word "excepting". Jesus Christ.

                  Stop making contradictory statements and getting upset about it, also get a job that pays real money instead of BAT.

                Privacy policy does not allow it, and their entire codebase is open source. You go ahead and prove otherwise. I strongly encourage you to do so.

                    Conveniently ignoring that everything they’ve developed is open source so anyone and everyone can actually prove if something out of the ordinary is in the code base. You sure are interested in programming, network security and FOSS you are.

        You can see that it pulls in shit directly from 8×8. It is indeed Jitsi modified with some Brave-specific tweaks.
