Best browser in privacy.

I don’t know why people don’t admit Firefox track you and not give you the privacy you need it. Just because Brave created the browser with software Chromium? All websites are created by chromium. Anyway the thing is Brave have everything in privacy, block ads, tracking, not sell your data and stop malicious websites before access to them. I use Brave all the time. But I only use Microsoft edge Collection to save my links there. If Brave make this, everything is completely for me. I hope soon to see a Collection. Anyway Brave you don’t need account it is better for privacy in that way but you can saved everything. How is that works? Check that in their websites or go to settings and Sync and follow the instructions. You will not use google search engine, Brave have own search engine and get better including the browser. Thanks developer for care privacy and keep improving and adding more features, I hope to see a collection soon, I want transfer my collection of Microsoft edge to Brave. And for people who talk bad about Brave, yes it is based on chromium but google can’t collect data from Brave dude. Give up in Firefox and use Brave. I was user of Firefox by years from my childhood and today I’m adult and Firefox is not like was before in privacy.

Http compatibility and missing video player

Issue 1: Http compatibility: On the iOS mobile browser version of Brave, there’s a function that lets you enable or disable a forced switch from http to the more secure https Protocol. However, the function that lets you disable it doesn't work. Even if you slide to have it disabled, webpages are still forcefully redirected to use https. The issue is that some websites are http only and will not function without that protocol. Even if shields in general are turned off, webpages still redirect to using https. It would be nice if the function to disable the switch was worked upon, or if a reason for why it can’t work is stated. I could accept if it’s just an iOS thing that nothing can be done about on Brave’s end. Issue 2: Missing video player: Some video players are completely missing when trying to play a video through the Brave browser. There’s just a black square where the player should be. To check whether it was a website issue or a Brave issue, I tested it by going to the exact same website and watching the same exact video through Brave, Google Chrome, and Mozilla Firefox. It worked on both chrome and Firefox, but not with Brave. I then turned off the shields to see if it work work then. Still a black square. I don’t know all too much about web development or what the specifics are, but I know that I love using Brave, and would love to see this issue resolved, if possible. Thank you!

Help please

So the past couple of days or so suddenly I cannot open my browser. Brave is my default browser and any time I click the icon it acts like it’s going to open it flashes up and then disappears like nothing ever happened. When I tried to click support here it tried to take me to my browser and exact same thing happened. I’ve shut my phone down and turned back on still happens, I even just updated my phone and it’s still happening. Can anyone please tell me what’s going on and how to fix this please? Thanks Now I see other people with this same problem and one answer was to update to 1.51 but mine is already updated to that and this is still happening. Please help or I’m going to have to change all of my settings and everything that makes brave my default browser because it’s just closing things out and I need to be snide to get the internet. Please help. Thank you 🙏🏼🙏🏼🙏🏼

I wrote something a few days ago. Now I see a lot more reviews saying this same thing that it won’t open at all. The problem is besides the obvious….. I have a lot of passwords stored in my brave settings and now not only can’t I use my regular browser, but I’m unable to get into any of the websites who’s passwords I’ve stored in brave. This is beginning to become a much bigger problem and I would think that by now with so many others in this same situation that there would be some sort of solution posted by now. Please help. I feel like my life is on hold until this gets resolved. Thank you
