A Full Guide & Optimal Configuration of Brave Browser

All you must know about Brave, the best browser in the market, involving the optimal configuration and installation guide to get the best out of this browser.

Brave Browser

Brave has all the benefits similar to Chrome, in addition to some extras.

It consists of track-blockers and ad-blockers made in the browser, along with the script blocking and HTTP upgrading, fingerprinting control, and cookie.

In short, it is a secure browser-accessible in the market.

In case you need to be less safe, you have the complete control of the degree of safety by organizing its shields.

Brave signifies every privacy anyone wants

Their servers cannot store your browsing information and cannot sell it to a third-party.

It works best against malware, disables unreliable plugins, and blocks phishing.

The Brave Sync encodes and synchronizes your bookmarks and setting along with the devices.

It allows you to navigate with Tor, or an embedded version if it is not enough to have Incognito Mode.

It appears with DuckDuckGo as a default search engine, and it is a great feature.

However, the most fundamental aspect of brave is its incentivized economy.

Through activating brave Ads and brave Rewards, the users get awarded Basic Attention Token (BAT) for viewing ads, which can be adjusted frequently.

Then, the users can tip their preferred content creator manually or set the contributions every month.

BAT and Brave browser are the most reliable projects of blockchain: they have the best software, great use of their utility token, and principles and philosophy behind it.

If you are a user of Chrome and you once use Brave, you will fall in love with this browser.

Let's talk about how to install and configure it as mentioned below:

How to Install a Brave Browser?

  • First of all, visit the official website of Brave and click on the download button.
  • Select the destination folder to download the installer. After installation, you can delete it.
  • Double click on the installer and follow all the instructions.
  • Click the 'Import' icon if you want to get your bookmarks from your old browser. If you do not wish to, click 'Next.'
  • When you click 'Import,' there will appear an option of selecting the browser from where you want to import bookmarks from.
  • The next step will take you to choose the search engine for the Brave browser.
  • For opening the search engine settings configuration, click the 'Settings' icon.

I will suggest you not to use Google products. Go for DuckDuckGo. It is a highly private search engine that works best while keeping your data private and secure. You can choose it for using the address bar.

Grace begins with a simple awareness of who we are and who we are becoming.

If there's one thing I'm absolutely terrible at, it's giving myself grace. I'm easily my own worst critic in almost everything that I do. I'm a raging perfectionist, and I have unrealistic expectations for myself at times. I can remember simple errors I made years ago, and I still hold on to them. The biggest thing I'm trying to work on is giving myself grace. I've realized that when I don't give myself grace, I miss out on being human. Even more so, I've realized that in order to give grace to others, I need to learn how to give grace to myself, too. So often, we let perfection dominate our lives without even realizing it. I've decided to change that in my own life, and I hope you'll consider doing that, too. Grace begins with a simple awareness of who we are and who we're becoming. As you read through these five affirmations and ways to give yourself grace, I hope you'll take them in. Read them. Write them down. Think about them. Most of all, I hope you'll use them to encourage yourself and realize that you are never alone and you always have the power to change your story.

How Young Feminists Can Understand And Subvert The Internalized Male Gaze

Women's self-commodification, applied through oppression and permission, is an elusive yet sexist characteristic of a laissez-faire society, where women solely exist to be consumed. (P.S. justice for Megan Fox)

Paramount Pictures

Within various theories of social science and visual media, academics present the male gaze as a nebulous idea during their headache-inducing meta-discussions. However, the internalized male gaze is a reality, which is present to most people who identify as women. As we mature, we experience realizations of the perpetual male gaze.
