Brave was great until I realized it doesn't support plugins. Which means you're stuck with the built-in adblocker which isn't good at all. Not sure if this has been fixed. I stopped using it about a year ago.

Oh, plus it actually uninstalled itself from my computer somehow. I never uninstalled it, just one day it was uninstalled. Not sure how, and I've never had that happen with any other program I've used. Felt it was strange and forgot about Brave at that point.

They have multiple plugins for ad blocking now, if I recall correctly.

If you have Windows 10, Microsoft decides if it likes that program or not. It will uninstall programs without telling you. Just my first thoughts.

Yep, had it kill some crap-cleaner type apps in the past. Connection viewers etc. Unlocker was one it really hated.

If you have Windows 10,

No decent person has used Windows since 1984.

The Windows 10 thing makes sense, but I'm using Windows 7.

I don't have any problems with ad blocking.

My ad blocking experience on Brave has been fantastic, as well.

Same. I used it for several months until I just got tired of various ads it didn't block and no additional plugins. I eventually switched to Waterfox on my computer. Phone though: Brave.

If you another one that is better for Mobile, let us know. So, far it is reliable and A+ in usability.

Reminds me of the days when virus checkers would uninstall/block other virus checkers. Might be the same thing happening again with browsers etc.
