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

At the beginning of my internets, at 2005, I think, I was using Netscape Navigator which was found at CHIP magazine DVD disk... I hated Internet Explorer, because everyone was using it. After the support ended, I moved to Firefox, and I was using it until the LGBT fight inside of Mozilla, some years ago.

Then, I moved to Chrome. I love this integration with the services, also I am using Google Cast so a lot. But I dislike the removal of NSDAPI plugins now at Chrome and FF...

And also I use IE 11 to play Battlefield 3.

I use Firefox for a decade and love it every single day! I even used Firebird and Phoenix and Netscape 6 before.

I also steer clear of corporate browsers from Microsoft and Google. They both send your data to their motherships.

Some third party Chrome versions like Opera, Iron or Brave are also OK but you still support the Google monopolists.

I started out using IE 6 back in 2006-2007

Then I switched to firefox, Saw firefox slowly become less and less secure

Then I used Chrome for the past 5 years or so, becoming a bit squeemish with their privacy or lack there-of

Recently i've been trying out Opera. gotta say, im pretty impressed.
