    Its the best Chromium browser, but the fingerprinting is pretty severe compared to Tor. I wouldn't run it without disabling hardware ID, WebGL and 3D API's. I also wouldn't run your monitor at native resolution because unlike Tor, Brave does not hide it. Browserleaks.com will tell you much more. The latest releases also prioritize ads/rewards more than fixes, but it is understandable. The "privacy-preserving analytics" part counters idea of preserving privacy...

    Those methods of fingerprinting existed for a very long time... Ungoogled Chromium for Windows and Bromite for Android already have functional canvas deception flags. The more I learn about Brave, the more I understand that it is simply a combination of:
    - Ungoogled Chromium (for Windows) / Bromite (for Android) with custom privacy settings and blocking of Google domains (through proxies)
    - Custom built-in "HTTPS Everywhere"-like extension
    - Custom built-in AdBlocker
    - Custom built-in Tor extension
    - Custom built-in Torrent extension
    - Custom built-in advertising technique

    All of those features are incomplete compared to Ungoogled Chromium + extensions or actual Tor Browser. For example, Brave's Tor gives away much more information when compared against Tor Browser. Brave simply connects to Tor nodes, but it doesn't prevent provision of users' information like Tor Browser does.
