There's lots of products I don't list on ThinkPrivacy for a long list of various reasons (or sometimes simply because less is more).
Nothing gets me as much hate and arguments as the decision not to list Brave.
There's a massive cult of usership there that cannot take an ounce of criticism over the browser.
@danarel Well, In opposition, the same will surely happen if you would list it. Brave is such an extreme middle at everything. Privacy Browser ~/~ Chromium Browser based. Adblocker ~/~ Alternative monetary methods. It is really, the perfect love/hate web browser.
@poorpocketsmcnewhold Very true.
But yeah, my reasoning is mainly focused on their business model, but also their CEO and one of their major funders.
I can't separate privacy from ethics. So I can't in good conscience list them.
@danarel wasn't in a middle of a brave discussion when switching.social disappeared? I still have faith in their return. The new "fork" is awesome, but still...
