Brave Browsing

There’s a new web browser on the market and it’s worth a look. Brave is designed to make browsing the web faster and safer. It’s available for Windows, Mac and Linux desktops and both iOS and Android devices.

We have a mission to save the web by increasing browsing speed and safety for users, while growing ad revenue share for content creators.

The web has become a different place. With the ad-tech ecosystem out of control, users have revolted and blocking ads has become the new weapon of choice for improving their browsing speed, safety and privacy. Unfortunately, blocking alone results in a race to the bottom where nobody wins. Without the ability for content creators to earn money for their efforts, users could be left with fewer sites to browse, relegated to hand-picked content from controlled sources.

Brave aims to transform the online ad ecosystem with micropayments and a new revenue-sharing solution to give users and publishers a better deal, where fast, safe browsing is the path to a brighter future for the open web.

I see that they already have a 1Password extension available. Nice!

New Windows Security Bug Leaves PCs Open to Hijackings.

As reported by Gizmodo, a newly discovered security bug leaves some Microsoft Windows PCs open to remote hijackings, meaning that someone else could take control of your computer and do as they wish with the files on it.

If you have a Windows PC, run the Windows Update program (found in the Control Panel) and download/install all the patches.
