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

@rob @protonmail @lightmyfire since we're talking about Android, I suggest #Orbot with Orweb (but I think Orweb has been renamed)

@rob @resist1984 @protonmail @lightmyfire
Orfox was the successor of Orweb and Orfox is succeeded by Tor Browser for Android.
I'm quite surprised that Rob's screenshot shows 06 Sep 19 which I presume is the date of the latest update.

What REALLY sucks about @torproject Browser for Android is that it doesn't seem to work with #Orbot with the consequence that you can't run more then 1 app which uses #Tor. Most of the time you'd have to reboot your phone to use another app with uses Tor 🤦‍♂️

@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).

You definitively don't know what you are talking about @protonmail. Brave is not a privacy browser and Tor should be first on the list.

@rob @protonmail
Indeed Brave is an ad agency with some scam token.

@protonmail Here's a list of privacy browser/source where you intern should get their information from or are you pay by Brave to advertise it? - privacytools.io/browsers/#brow

@rob @protonmail
what's wrong with Brave exactly ?
it's recommended in the french version of privacytools :
privacytools.dreads-unlock.fr/

@bikepunk
Yup. I didn't update the French version because since months the team behind Privacytools.io is working on an update on the way they manage translations.
Also, updating from the current version would be a lot of work and I don't have the time for that now. But I am open for contributions if you feel you can help on this.
@rob @protonmail

@rob @protonmail
thanks, that is exactly the information I was looking for ;-)

@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.

@Lingondraken @protonmail they are definitively paid by Brave to put it in first position and Tor in 3rd. 😋

@protonmail You are giving to people terrible advice here. I'm feeling more confident with @Tutanota. Yes, "because privacy matter". :thinking_rms:

@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?

@protonmail
"What’s your favorite web browser? Let us know in the comments on Twitter or Reddit."

Where did you leave decentralized (real freedom) social networks??? Sorry but it just made me laugh nonstop 😂😂😂
