The free market is coming in to assist those who have been censored or cannot find information that has been censored by Google and other big tech giants. Privacy-focused web browser Brave is readying to launch a search engine that will compete with Big Tech while also being free of its influence.
Decentralization is going to be the downfall of the current systems set up to remove power and wealth from the many while transferring it to the few. This is yet another sign of the times. Those who think they own other humans are going to fail. The systems will come crashing down and it will be up to all of us to make sure we never fall under a belief system that some have the right to rule others ever again. Humans are waking up!
“Under the hood, nearly all of today’s search engines are either built by, or rely on, results from Big Tech companies. In contrast, the Tailcat search engine is built on top of a completely independent index, capable of delivering the quality people expect but without compromising their privacy,” Brave said in a press release. “Tailcat does not collect IP addresses or use personally identifiable information to improve search results.”
Google has been manipulating search results and censoring websites for years. Now there’s at least a way around all of that as the power structure crumbles and people realize they no longer have to be slaves to anyone. Freeing the mind is the first step.
According to the Washington Examiner, Brave, which was founded by ex-Mozilla CEO Brendan Eich, announced it had acquired an open-source search engine originally developed by the now-defunct Cliqz anti-tracking browser and search platform. Eich also promised that the platform would be free of censorship.
“Brave will provide the first private browser+search alternative to the Big Tech platforms and will make it seamless for users to browse and search with guaranteed privacy,” Eich said. “Also, owing to its transparent nature, Brave Search will address algorithmic biases and prevent outright censorship.”
I’ve been using Brave Browser for about 6 months, very reliable on default install. Been adjusting the options to tighten it up some more.
Maybe Brave will render the need for a VPN obsolete. However, even now, Brave as a browser is really good. It alone can block trackers and ads, save bandwidth, and can actually help you find what you want quicker. When using a search engine also use it on the Brave browser (NEVER use google or google chrome, Mozilla, Firefox, etc. anyway, I utterly despise them).
I have read there are officials who have made statements it is unfortunate the internet is in the hands of citizens, that they wished it was reserved only for gov’t use. But since then, TPTB has learned to use the internet against the citizens. Gab has been attacked and it is believed by many that big tech. and officialdom colluded to damage it because it refuses to censor anything. As more and more options are developed and become available to completely shield citizens on-line privacy (which helps empower people) look for gov’t to mandate the use of this technology illegal. The State insists on monitoring everything you do on the internet and know what you are looking at. And big tech. won’t like not being able to use you and profit from you in ways you don’t see or consent to.
If you don’t believe you are monitored you are woefully ignorant. Algorithms are used to capture trigger words and phrases, even sounds and images. A record is accumulated by the providers that can and will provide all your history to the gov’t. I frequently look for ways to enhance the shielding my internet use. I highly value my privacy and my information. I do everything I can do from ceding anything including blocking cookies and clearing browsing history and data.
Yet another rube duped by Brave. They are Google in lion’s clothing. Get wise. They’re actually technically owned by Google but they’ve done some clever things to cover up the connections.
Do the digging, you’ll find that the world’s worst browser, Brave, is also the biggest liar when they claim to be all about privacy and security.
They are a Trojan Horse getting you to trust them. It’s called a bait-and-switch.
Get wise man. Brave is a total hoax.
Brave might be good, but the Dissenter browser builds on the Brave codebase and adds:
“This is equivalent to Brave Browser 1.5.114, with some modifications:
Brave Ads, Brave Rewards, Brave Sync, Brave Wallet, Google GCM, Brave New Tab Sponsored Images, and many other things are DISABLED.
Dissenter Extension is embedded right in the URL bar.
The new tab page is something we can continue to build on!
It’s much faster.”
“Brave is a free and open-source web browser developed by Brave Software, Inc. based on the Chromium web browser.”
“Chromium is a free and open-source software project developed by the Google-sponsored Chromium project.”
I am easily the most multi-cultural racist, I know, having enriched my intellectual life in greener pastures.
What always ultimately happens to these AI / thought experiments / social experiments, is it turns into a parallel dimension of the Google universe.
If there were any real cyber rebels, putatively offshore or in some hypothetical micro-nation, may I suggest time stamps and alphabetization, without Dewey, Gates, Raniere, or Epstein?
