So in addition to activism, there's a simple choice you can make to stand up for ambient privacy: use a browser with real tracking protection, on by default.

We would want user-set exceptions to be dual keyed of course. So work on chromium required for that. But it is amazing how well a near-total 3rd party cookie block works!

I ran across some old docs for HP PA-RISC CPUs from ‘94, which were touted as 0.8 micron fabrication. With current 10 nanometer fabrication, that means every transistor in the old CPU could now be replaced by a complete 6502 microprocessor.

We have pretty much been totally blocking. Notable exception here: . See for an open RFE.

On Wired’s list, yes — I was asking John about an issue upthread.

No, extensions cannot do what we do for Brave shields. See Manifest V3 controversy re: uBO.

already blocks HSTS suoercookies and matches Safari JS-set cookie TTL (gonna try 1 day soon). We block 3rd party storage and scripts aggressively, which is easier than partitioning all DOM-storage/cache/service-workers. Different approach but effective too. Any holes?

Absent fraud or coercion (same category), there is no guarantee that the referred new users stick around 30-90 days, so this game is a numbers game. Try it! You need referred new users to ping back 30-90 days after first ping. I said this several tweets ago. Hope this helps.

I work on 's internal component library and I recently spent some time integrating axe (a11y audits) into our tests, and I love it. It's just *so nice* to have this run on every commit. puppeteer/axe-puppeteer are leaps above the previous generation of tools like this.

I will check how it's performing, but the first-order issue may be Twitter retargeting you. I'd start there.

Uncapped would mean we grow w/o bound and he converts enough ad viewers to retained Brave users to keep buying ads. I'm skeptical, but if he got us 10M users, I'd be grateful. Twitter has ads - if you don't like them, block! Our Block Element context menu item is but one of many.
