    Sorry if I'm not an English native speaker, and don't bother to use a spellchecker, but I believe my English is not so bad since we can debate and elaborate complex opinions.

    No it doesn't show ads by default, unless you enable the rewards.

    Weird. I think I'll stick to Opera as a back-up.

    @Daveski17 - Brave does not have ads by default. Plus, it has an excellent spell-checker so -- "whinning" is called to immediate attention as a probable misspelling or typo.

    @guest -- I know English isn't your native language. I was just kidding. I wish I handled a second language as well as you do English. Live long & prosper!

    As mentioned at least twice in this thread, Brave does not show ads by default. I have installed uBO + uBO Extra (among others) anyway.

    OK thanks. I'm keeping an eye on it as a potential back up browser. I'm not sure whether I'll 86 Opera yet.

    If I had to ditch Chrome, I will go for ChromEdge, works very well without flaws since, I even had almost all my tweaks available and all my extensions.

    Hey guest,

    What kind of tweaks have you done with Chrome?

    I'm just curious as I'm using Chrome as well :)

    What do you suggest outside of Chrome? I tried Firefox again but simply do not care for it.

    Brave, Edge Chromium or Opera. I use the first two.
