    Brave browser will let you cash in on tweets and Reddit posts
    That is, if you can persuade people to pay you with tips through the ad-blocking web browser.

    I have been testing out the latest dev version of Brave Version 0.55.3 which is based on Chromium 70.0.3538.12 and I really like it a lot. Tabs are on top and there is a black color option that has even the address bar dark. Faster than previous versions and it uses Chrome extensions.

    Then I guess I will check it out again. Hopefully I can install it "sandboxed" with the help of Sandboxie, Chrome didn't give me any problems.
