Oh I understood alright and agree that Chrome data-mines the user for Google. My point is that Brave does NOT despite it being built on the same core.

As for whether Chrome can continue to data-mine by background moles if not being used but installed on someone's computer... wouldn't surprise me but as said, never had Chrome here and never investigated such.

Ok, and I do understand that Brave isn't like that.
My bottom line is that you should not have Chrome installed on your machine if you think you are going to be safer using a different browser on the same device.

I'm going to pop into this PC heavy line of talk and once again say I'm loving Brave on my Android Samsung tablet (phone too but I still hate smart phones).

Yes, faster than Firefox but just so much better formatted and easy to organize. My third party password manager is happy, I have a well-tuned engine with Brave. And I'm sure there's more than a bit I've yet to find. As a cat guy, the lion icon is icing on the cake. Smile

FWIW I've gone back to DuckDuckGo for a search engine after trying Qwant. I found the later to be overly finnicky about inputs to get the desired results. I feel it needs further maturation at this point.

That's kinda how I feel about DDG. I've tried them, and so far, at least for the stuff I search for, they only really give good results for stuff that Google's trying to memory hole.

Edit: Which, to be clear, is really handy for doing political research and stuff, but not so much when I'm trying to do my usual programming/math/physics searches.
