An Alt-Tech Convergence

This is the good kind of convergence, not SJW convergence. I’m delighted to be able to say that the latest version of Brave, 0.12.9, now features Infogalactic as a built-in search engine. You can either make it the default through Settings: Search or you can access it directly in the URL bar by typing :i, then whatever you want to search for.

For example, typing :i vox day will take you directly to the Vox Day page on Infogalactic.

Another new feature is the new tab page that shows you how many trackers/ads are blocked with Brave, and thus how much time you save when browsing/loading pages

As for Infogalactic, we’re still working the phase one speedup. Figure three more weeks before we’re able to implement that.
