      RemovedUser Brave may block third-party trackers, but it collects data on you and will gladly share your information with third-parties, as shown by Switched to Linux. Mozilla, on the other hand, doesn't collect data on you unless you allow them, and you can download extensions that block third-party trackers.

      kdakdkzxobincewjvj Firefox runs off its own engine. Most browsers use the Chromium engine, which is what most websites are built for. The browser is slow, and most pages don't even load properly because of this.

      coralinecastell The most privacy-oriented browser there is. However, due to its learning curve and different setup, it's easier to use by the power user. If you don't want to learn how to use Tor, go with Firefox. Brave collects your data and displays you ads.

    3. Vivaldi is extremely customizable, presenting a wide range of settings and built-in features designed to put the user in control. Its Chromium-based engine makes it fast and compatible with most Chrome extensions, and Vivaldi removes the code that tracks users from it.

      addermc4435 Reason I don't think Vivaldi is comparable to Brave. Unfortunately I have plenty of time to read up on websites and almost All the top privacy tech sites and others have stated Vivaldi applies user ID when you first sign up. Similar to bing.

      Similar to FireFox, it does NOT share any information, it's basically like FireFox on steroids (in a good way). I personally use Waterfox and I think it is really good.
