Tried brave again, fingerprint protection & tor support is great

But if i use brave adblocker, it blocks youtube/twitch well.....but i dont like having cookie popups

And if i use brave adblocker, sometimes its too agressive and i have to turn it off to watch content

About these pros & cons should i just stick to ublock origin like i do on other browsers and enjoy the benefits of tor + fingerprint + other core privacy improvements over firefox and other chromium forks

Edit: how i enable fanboy annoyance to block cookie pop-ups using adblock syntax on brave stable?

Have you used the right-click Brave icon in Explorer? Not quite as convenient as µBO picker/zapper but it works fine.

You may switch off Shields and "Report a broken site" directly in UI.

You cannot add filter lists to Brave except included country-specific lists. However you can add custom filters by going to --> Hamburger menu>Brave Ad Block>Custom Filters. See Adblock Plus filter cheatsheet Please post any of your fixes here on the thread.

Also, @fanboynz works for Brave and is very active on Brave Community so I encourage you to join and post. Ad block issues are usually addressed quickly there, with auto-updates every 24-48 hrs.

The latest iOS version is supper buggy. Specifically it can't handle taking you to the correct links from alerts on this forum, but it acts weird in other ways too. Not sure what they did in the last update, but it's made me move back to FF for the time being.
