      Is Brave still better than Chrome with Ghostery, Privacy Badger, Nano Adblocker, and NoScript extensions? Also just switched to using DuckDuckGo for most searches. Honest question.

        You can add all those extensions in Brave through the Chrome web store. And you can use any search engine you want. Brave is based on Chromium, but is faster than Chrome and doesn't phone home all your online activity to Google.

          New feature:
          tab sharing between devices
          This has been in Firefox for quite a while now, and I use it all the time. You click the `user icon` -> `Send tab to device`

          Good to see it coming to Chrome.

            I agree. I tried to convince my parents to move away from Keep, but I have failed as they still use it...

              Hi Michael, I think I see some kind of a bug in phoronix website, or perhaps it is a feature:-)

              In the Android version of chrome 77, there is a flag you could turn on to turn the *content* of the web interface, not just the UI, into the dark mode (chrome://flags and then check Android Web Contents Dark Mode to "Enabled").

              After doing that, most websites have dark backgrounds and white fonts, but the pictures are displayed in correct color (so it's not just an inversion of colors). Now phoronix.com is one of the few website that still have white background and dark fonts on white background.

              Curiously, phoronix forum seems to respect the color scheme of this dark content mode and show dark background and white fonts. I don't know much about web development, nor how chrome dark mode work. But it'll be great if phoronix main page also follow the dark content mode!

                I don't use Chrome/Chromium at all but Pale Moon and DuckDuckGo. At the same time I still use my SE W995 and I don't have Facebook profile - I'm disgusted from all this "social" bullshits.

                  They need to get Igalia to work on V4L2 so we can skip the VAAPI/VDPAU work that will be deprecated.

                    Isn't V4L2 just about recording? VAAPI/VDPAU in turn is used to decode and play videos.

                      And Dillo is even faster than Brave. Again: stop the pissing contest already.
