Does Brave use any other aspect of Chrome other than this User Agent?
The article I linked up above states Chrome is a Google product ( and obviously has been caught spying )
I like Brave, it's really fast. Won't load comments to youtube videos though, which is fine most of the time, if I wish to read comments I'll switch to Firefox. But Firefox is horrible these days on Win 10 for some reason, the audio and video is out of whack on it. Brave plays back Youtube videos perfectly. I just don't want to conned into thinking Brave is not a Google product, when essentially it is.
The code to build Chrome was open sourced a few years
The official GitHub mirror of the Chromium source. Contribute to chromium/chromium development by creating an account on GitHub.
This is why Brave is similar to Chrome.
Google does not have your data.
The Brave browser is designed to not know who you are, or what sites you visit. Brave does not store any record of users’ browsing history. Brave does not write any personal data to the blockchain. The best way for us to ensure your information stays safe is to never receive it in the first...
Brave browser is also open source..
Next generation Brave browser for Android, Linux, macOS, Windows. - brave/brave-browser
The comments go away because Brave's code tries to block any third party content, which often times can also lead to pages not loading the same way you would see on Chrome.
