INTERNET users are being urged to ditch Google Chrome in favor of a privacy rival.
The world’s most popular web browsing app has been given a chilling role from Microsoft, who recently hinted that people should give up Chrome support Edge.
Another kid on the block is Brave, who appeared at the scene in 2016.
The software boasts 46 million monthly active users and 14.7 million daily active users.
Though that’s still far from Chrome’s huge market share, which is estimated at 68% worldwide.
But Brave gives you more control over the data you share, like Cnet explain.
This is because it allows you to block third-party trackers and cookies from tracking what you receive while browsing the web.
Since Google has a powerful advertising business, it’s something they’re less likely to give up.
Brave allows you to tweak your advertising preferences or block them altogether – for a fee.
Its makers are aware that many websites rely on advertising to keep their content free, so instead it allows people to contribute anonymously.
The Brave Rewards plan allows users to view a selected number of ads in exchange for tokens that then help pay the site owner.
Curiously, Brave is also built on the same foundation as Chrome, so you can still use the extensions.
The company has also developed its own search engine, so you can get even further out of Google’s reach.
Brave is available for free on Windows, MacOS, Android, and iOS.
In other news, Google has taken action against big hacking operation which it claims has infected more than a million devices.
iPhone owners are being urged change their settings to protect their text from stalkers.
The UK is fighting a translation of hacking attacks targeted at consumers and businesses, according to officials.
And Apple has announced that it will allow customers fix their own iPhone for the first time starting next year.
