i tried brave for a few days and then uninstalled it. ofc any "new" browser installation will feel snappier - its like that everytime.

however opera naively squashes ads much better; no pop ups! and i get an annoying pop up telling me my user name and password if i am not logged in.

and brave rewards? sounds more like rewards for being a nice lab rat. no thanks.
