    I personally use Brave, It's chromium based and it has a built in Ad-Blocker.

    I was thinking about that. Any good? Can I use chrome type extensions. I use lastpass for example?

    I heard of that one but heard that they were considering charging for their software, in the future. Is that true?

    You can use Chrome extensions and it's completely free.

    I can only speak to its Linux versions, but I love and highly recommend the SeaMonkey suite.

    As I've noted before, it's the grand-daddy of Firefox and Thunderbird, a Mozilla product that started its life as Netscape Communicator.

    I've used Adblock Plus since its inception, and can't recall the last time I saw an ad.

    The suite includes an e-mail and newsgroup client, which I've used forever. I have multiple e-mail accounts, all of which are visible/working/accessible at the same time.

    The browser has some add-ons available, and I'm still using some that long ago fell off the map, but a little editing of their text config files keeps them working with newer versions.

    By editing one of its config files years ago, I've customized my browser so each tab has its own color.

    Ghostery extenstion is always an excellent choice, washes aways trackers, as well as block up ads too, firefox too but it can get sluggish in the longest run though. I have so many extensions for my chrome on windows, several of them are just of disposed of trackers in that way.

    Honestly? I went over to brave in my Android and in my windows? I can't tell the difference between it and chrome. the only difference maybe is that a seems sleeker in a little bit more private. I also can use all of my extensions with brave. However, the ad blocker is built into brave so I don't even need that. I liked it yesterday and will continue to test out brave.

    I did test out Brave, I think it was for my comp or tablet, not so sure whaer eI found it on accident somewhere. I really do not like it when you have to search fo ryour bookmarks and dro down when going private mode, read it was a little safter without having it on though, also have to really focused on different reasons too. Whatever works though
