Your web browser is the first line of defense against third-party trackers. That’s why it is essential to choose a browser with strong privacy protections. Check out our favorite browsers here: protonmail.com/blog/best-brows

@protonmail "4. DuckDuckGo (honorable mention)" <= what a sham. #DDG deserves "dishonorable mention" for feeding #privacy abusers like #Verizon, #Yahoo, & #Microsoft

@protonmail Second line of defense*

The first line of defense is the information such as this on how to defend one's self.

@protonmail

"Unlike Brave, the standard Firefox does not automatically block advertisements."

I don't think this is accurate, since Firefox now has built-in tracking protection.

@sorin @protonmail It does, but by default tracking protection is only enabled in private tabs on Firefox. Easy to change for you and me, but not for most people.

@Lingondraken @protonmail

I don't think that is the case anymore: "When you download Firefox, all protections included in Standard Enhanced Tracking Protection are already enabled." (from support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/e).

@protonmail Yeah, one has to really not care, or just be reckless, to be using Chrome. Even then so, I am weary of using Brave since its built on Chrome-code. Not because it necessarily is a problem in of itself, but the internet is a healthier and safer place with options.

Firefox is the logical and ethical choice.

@protonmail why is it that when I opened your link ddg showed me this?

@protonmail Thanks. The web browser Brave is marketed as a privacy-friendly ad-free alternative, but that's pretty disingenuous…Brave exists not to protect privacy, but to make money from selling ads…One of Brave's owners is Peter Thiel’s Founders Fund (Switching Social)

@protonmail
Good stuff. Brave is great. Let no one tell you otherwise.

@protonmail Brave? It surely doesn't belong to the list. I'm curious why it's even at the first place?
