>This is the default mode of operation. We insert ads after blocking without hurting page load speed, and those ads will support the sites you browse. We choose ads based on browser-private user data with no remote tracking -- not even by our servers. lmao
>>52676813 You can't block ads without knowing what an ad is, so you'd end up having a blocklist for generic ads as before, except when a hit is made against that list, a brave ad shows up that you then have to block with a secondary list.
>>52677091 is this what they're marketing to? even though the irony of "fag hater" was lost, as a consumer I don't want to be associated by that pro/anti SJW trash.
these hype threads are usually started by paid marketers, so some intern is bound to see this and know that not even infinite funding can increase their ability to deliver ads to some people past a certain point
that's the business model, and it only works when people are ignorant or have no control over their operating systems (iOS and android)
>>52677544 It supposedly gives some form of revenue for the user. If true, it is indeed somewhat interesting in a "what is the best way to abuse this to get rich quick?" way. If not true, then it's really just pure adware.
>>52677544 Sorry for my English, but bear with me. As I see it, Brave is the last step in a natural progression:
1. Simple websites which aim to attract users and get revenue from advertising. Your advertising revenue depends only on how much attractive content you can produce.
2. Platforms where users create the content. Your have to think about the infrastructure and the way to advertise effectively, but the content creation is no longer the bottleneck.
3. This is just one example, but look at Apple News. They want to create a unified platform through which users would read ALL the news sites. That's a good way to cash in on the whole industry of journalism. That's why they allowed adblocking in iPhone browers – because they want news websites to come to Apple News platform.
And Brave is the ultimate step here. Where apple tries to shave off some revenue from the whole journalism industry, Brave tries to do that to THE WHOLE OF INTERNET. It's a grandiose attempt, and an unexpected one, at least to me.
Also, it's interesting because people won't use Brave if they don't think it has a really strong moral backbone. That's why Brave are talking about how their browser will respect privacy and how the ads will be chosen in-browser (never sending your browsing history or anything like that to them) and so on. Their business absolutely depends on their legitimacy.
They will fail, of course, nobody wants that piece of shit. But nonetheless, it is a kinda smart and kinda interesting idea.
>>52678746 Yeah, perhaps, just perhaps Brave would have worked when adblocking was still in its infancy, but now it's definitely too late. Those who care about publisher revenues either don't use an adblocker or use adblock plus with non-intrusive ads whitelisted. Of course, non-intrusive ads program does not deal with tracking, but I don't think there are enough people who care about this kind of tracking enough, and I'm not sure that Brave could offer a solution that's not sketchy.
Anyway, it will be interesting to see how it turns out. Who knows, maybe I'm wrong and they do get traction.
>>52675556 chrome is the dominant browser these days though (maybe with the exception of IE, maybe not). who gives a fuck if someone ousted from a failing project like firefox goes off in his own direction?
>>52679157 You forgot the part where they track part of your history and personally deliver it to advertisers. You also forgot the part where the "customizable adblocker" gives you the choice between seeing lots of ads or only ads and that's about it.
>>52679383 This is blatant misinformation. Consider actually reading their site.
>You want to block all ads and trackers, but you’re not sure about our plan to insert better ads with high performance and privacy. You can do this with Brave by checking Block Ads. We want you on board even if you’re just blocking everything.
>>52679456 Just read their page, will ya? If and only if you choose to replace ads, you get some money to your pocket, which you can spend to support chosen websites. On these websites you will no longer see any advertising.
If you choose to block all ads, they will be blocked everywhere. That's the end of that. You annoying, lying cunt.
