Brave or Firefox? What's the Best Privacy-Respecting Browser?
There is no better time than right this very moment to start taking your privacy seriously. For many people, using the default browser that comes with their device is normal, and this leads to millions of users taking Google Chrome or Microsoft’s Edge for granted. But there is a better choice.
Your privacy matters, and this simple choice can make all the difference.
But, for those on the search for a perfect privacy-protecting browser, the choice between the various platforms out there can be overwhelming. How can you know what the best choice for your privacy, security, and ease-of-use really is?
I’ve been using both Brave and Firefox on and off since they respectively came out, and I’ve dabbled in pretty much every other browser out there, searching for one that offers the best responsiveness along with the best privacy and security features. Of the big names in privacy, Firefox and Brave are two of the best for average users (though, honestly, Safari does just fine for the average user as well).
While I’d love to come right out and tell you that Firefox is the clear winner, some huge missteps from Mozilla over the last decade have left it behind Brave in certain ways. Supporting it is, I think, still vital, however, and Mozilla supposedly has big plans for the next couple of years as it tries to reinvent itself for the modern era. Both browsers are good, ultimately, it just comes down to a few key points.
