I like to try out different browsers, and I've been using brave for about a week now. One thing I really like about it is it blocks unwanted ads and trackers by default and keeps count.
I hadn't really been paying attention to the numbers but they got my attention today. Just six days of using it as my primary browser and already:
- 286 trackers blocked
- 7,907 ads blocked
While I do spend a considerable amount of time on my browser, that's more than a thousand ads per day. I don't know but these numbers seem impossible to me. That means, if I wasn't blocking any ads at all, I'd be exposed to more than a thousand ads a day on my laptop alone. That's not counting Spotify (since I don't have a premium subscription), stuff on TV, on my phone...
I'd like to hear the community's input on this. Who else uses Brave? How are your numbers?
