Microsoft will adopt Google Chrome's controversial Manifest V3 (ad-friendly tweaks) in Edge. This kind of thing is precisely why we need to have more than a single browser engine implementation, and why Firefox is more important than ever.
@yogthos what about brave ? Do you think it's a valid "alternative" ? (At least for normies)
@slartibartfast @yogthos yes it is, I found the answer about manifest v3 here : https://brave.com/improved-ad-blocker-performance/
"The recent Chromium’s Manifest v3 controversy [...] did not affect Brave as requests are processed natively, deep within the browser’s network stack."
@oursse @yogthos I’ve recently switched from Firefox to Brave and I’m really impressed with it. It’s ad blocker is good and it’s even got a ‘Tor Tab’ for private browsing. I know Brave uses the same engine as Chrome so I really hope this does not impact Brave’s ad blocking ability. I suppose the Brave devs wouldn’t implement Manifest V3 if it did?
A pity that the latest Firefox is totally rubbish. I started using with Mozilla (after Netscape i started beta testing Mozilla for OS/2) and always been faithful. But the latest change was so bad i switched to Edge.
So i want to be faithful, but not at all costs.
