    It's unfortunate that Brave is based on that Chromium crap, otherwise I would have given it a try.

    This browser is getting better and better, the new Private Tab with Tor thing is icing on an already great cake, and they give you free coins to get you started for the BAT coin thing. I have Wilders enabled as one of my recipients, I hope this site accepts these coin payments because as fast as Braves user base is growing it could be a nice revenue stream for the site.
