It also has some weird bitcoin funding model where they replace ads with their own ads, and it's run by the Mozilla guy that was fired for being anti-gay

So just cause he was anti-gay marriage (and not "anti-gay") that means his company and its products suck?

No, they also suck because of the ad replacing thing that was mentioned in the post you replied to. How did that escape you?

Number 2: Well they don't "replace ads with their own ads", that's just wrong:

Brave ads only exist as an experimental setting, and it is and will remained disabled by default and opt-in. If released one day, it is using on device only data and opt-in.

Brave payments (donations to publishers) is opt-in, done anonymously, and on device if enabled using the Anonize protocol.
