A Brave Decision

I recently switched browsers. I originally was an IE user, but after I switched to Linux, I started using Firefox. Later on I discovered that Chrome worked better with many websites, so I’ve been using that for the past several years.

Recently all has not been well with the Chrome browser. My sync account hasn’t been syncing up lately, and a couple of websites wouldn’t load properly… I had to use Firefox to renew one of my domains!

Well this past week I finally did it. I switch to the “Brave” browser. It’s basically a Chrome knockoff, but those pages that didn’t work, now work just fine again. They also have some extra privacy voodoo going on, but it’s basically Chrome. You can even use the same webstore to install all your usual extensions.

So if you get a chance, check out Brave, or if you’re a Firefox lover, try Pale Moon.


Thanks for the jokes this week, George and Glenn. If anyone has a joke to share please use our submission page or email it to
