Brave, the ad-blocking browser from former Mozilla CEO, grabs $4.5 million:
SOURCE: techcrunch.com (ARTICLE DATE: AUG 1st 2016)

Brave Software, the new web browser company co-founded by former Mozilla CEO Brendan Eich, has raised $4.5 million in seed funding for the continued development of its open source browser that blocks online ads and other trackers. Unlike traditional web browsers where ad-blocking takes place via a third-party add-on or extension, Brave’s browser has this technology built in, claiming not only to offer users more privacy, but also increased speed and performance – especially when surfing the mobile web.

According to metrics shared by Brave, the desktop version of the browser offers a 40 to 60 percent speed increase, and a 2x to 4x speed increase on mobile devices. Because of its ad-blocking and script-blocking features, mobile users will also see less battery consumption and data usage.

The browser offers a variety of security and safety features, as well, including support for encrypted data traffic via HTTPS Everywhere, fingerprinting shields, phishing protection, malware filtering and the above-mentioned script blocking.
The Brave browser is planning its 1.0 release for September

I use both Chrome and Mozilla, because I'm used to them =) Two years ago it was a problem for me to use Chrome because of the amount of RAM that it eats, but then I bought the new PC and everything became fine. I'm not interested in any new browsers because the ones that I use now, satisfy all my needs. They have to piss me off really bad, to make me download something new.

I'm using since the 90's Firefox/Mozilla only: nearly from the start of this project ("Mozilla foundation").
The advantages (in my eyes): highly customizable (lots of add-ons and designs/skins), quite stable
and secure (in the past few years). But when i will have some more time then will also take a look at
the brand new browsers/alternative browsers like Cent, edge,vivaldi, chromium etc.....

My current default browser is Cent.
At the moment Edge is used as secondary browser.
Most of the time i am using Firefox or Cyberfox as my main browser and Cent for movies and live streaming.
Cent in movies is using less CPU than Firefox.
p.s: i am waiting Vivaldi to mature to use it again very nice browser

Chrome 64 Bits - for my family - as I find it stable, secure, extension & overall good.
Cyberfox portable Intel 64 Bits - I use it.

Tried Vivaldi portable 32 Bits - I find it good but still there are quirks & not ready to replace the main browser on the system.
Tried Edge - I find it buggy & kinda incomplete browser, updates/improvements will make it better so needs little time.

Will give a try to Brave when stable is out.

I can redirection fails when clicking on Microsoft Answers links from Google on Chrome, but works fine in Incognito and on Edge.

Browsers using:
Chrome (Windows), Opera (Android), Edge, Safari (Mac/iOS)

I honestly have no idea of what causes that redirection loop (and its failure). I just don't bother with it anymore and use Internet Explorer or Microsoft Edge.
