Currently trying out Brave browser again after seeing that it's recently started to fully support Chrome extensions, and... I have to give it to them, it's actually a lot better now! I like that it's Chrome without Google, and I like that it's privacy-focused. Might try it for a while and see if I prefer it over Firefox.
Why do you hate Google? Also, what kinda Mac do you have? I have a 27-inch iMac with 20GB of RAM and a 2.7GHz Intel Core i5.

Oh, there's Brave Rewards program just like Bing (obviously different) but this is cool!

@Chris (sorry, for some reason I can't quote posts) I don't necessarily hate Google, I just wish they weren't as much of a monopoly as they are now. They are cornering a substantial amount in the tech industry and not having everything be from Google would be ideal. I'm continuing to use Google as a search engine, but I would like for my browser to be non-Google if possible. Similarly, I use Microsoft Office but my operating system is from Apple.

I have a 2017 13 inch MacBook Air. Nothing fancy but it works pretty well. :)

Chrome. I've got nearly a decade long catalog of bookmarks on here I just do not feel like losing.
When was the last time you cleaned up your bookmarks? xD

According to Task Manager, Brave takes up almost half the CPU usage...

Lmao I'm making a joke, I don't do it very often. I think I've become a bookmark hoarder, I can't bear to part with some of these even though I may only use them once or twice at all.
