Brave leads The Disconvergence

An article about Brendan Eich and Brave:

The former CEO of Mozilla has released a new Internet browser called Brave. Brendan Eich, the creator of JavaScript, continues to lead the technological revolution with Brave, an innovative concept in Internet browsers.

After blowing away the competition (read: Microsoft’s Internet Explorer) with the Internet browser Firefox, Eich has come up with Brave, a nearly ad-free, lightning-fast browser that eliminates intrusive ads as well as common but unwanted tracking tack-ons.

A tech legend for his JavaScript and Firefox contributions, Eich was betrayed by his contemporaries and forced out of business as CEO of Mozilla, the company behind Firefox, because he supported natural marriage.

When it was revealed in 2014 that Eich donated $1,000 to California’s Proposition 8 ballot proposal, which defined marriage as the union of one man and one woman, he was blackballed, even though Proposition 8 was supported by the majority of Californians and easily passed in 2008.

Eich was publicly shamed because he believed in natural marriage and family. He was openly called a racist, Nazi, and inhumane.

But the tenacious techie didn’t give up. Without apology, Eich continued to innovate and ultimately came up with a whole new concept in web browsers: the ad-free, tracking-free, fast internet browser Brave.

In November 2015, Eich raised $2.5 million to create an advanced super-technical team.  By August 2016, the company had raised $4.5 million in seed money to launch the browser.

Brave is called an entirely new way to browse the web without being intrusively tracked, and without time-consuming download ads.

If you’re tired of your every online move being overseen and policed by the SJWs in social media, you should seriously consider joining The Disconvergence. Brendan Eich and Brave have led the way, but they’re not alone.

I’ve been on Brave since July and I use it every day. It’s very nearly my sole browser; I only have to use Pale Moon for a few minor tasks here and there. It’s still pre-release, so it’s very much a work-in-progress, but it’s already faster and less annoying than either Firebird or Chrome and it has far fewer pauses and crashes than Mozilla Thunderbird.

(A Thunderbird replacement would be my personal vote for the next Alt-Tech target, although I’m sure there are more pressing needs out there.)

So, if you’re not on Brave yet, give it a try on your desktop. I don’t think the mobile version is quite ready for prime time yet, so I’m still using Pale Moon on Android.
