Sometimes use TOR for looking up things and usually FireFox because I was an old Netscape user for many years.

I've been using firefox will about:config modifcations and some extensions. Also, I have been using Chromium for some websites that are more heavy on flash but only one or two. However, even with most of the privacy settings turned to off I'm always slightly wary while I'm using Chromium. Today I tried out a new browser called "Brave". So far I like the privacy options on the browser and I find no WEB RTC leaks when disable all finger printing is turned on. Does anyone on here have enough experience with this browser? Are there any modifictions I should know to use while using my VPN with the Brave browser?

Edit:

 

Then I came across this page as well. Apparently the source is based on Chromium but they claim Brave does not call back to Google or their Webstore. Is there any way to check the validity of such a statement?

Sniff the network, look which domains and IPs are requested.

Your advice definitely makes sense. However, I have never actually done something like that before. Is it relatively simple? I imagine there could also be a config file somewhere that would tell that information too?

Unfortunately, some knowledge about computer networks is required. Also, sniffers such as Wireshark are not too easy to understand. I'd gladly give you some links, but I'm not at home. :)

Hi there.

I'm a novice at this internet thingy, but have to use it to do research. I read a security leaflet somewhere and my work also sent me on a "be safe on the web" workshop; I can't seem to find the leaflet now but I do the following - on a ubuntu 16.04 machine:

 - I have several profiles on firefox. one is for web mail, one for my banking and another for browsing and downloading media. Cookies clear automatically in each profile but in the one I use for banking I have no apps loaded. For the other ones I do have a couple of apps - adguard, is one - and also no script. I have webrtc disabled. And a canvas/fingerprint blocker.

- I also use the latest Opera. It is great is I need to print a page - nice neat prints. I also have it set to delete all cookies, block finger prints etc.

 - I have chromium, but rarely use it. Again, set up to delete cookies etc.

I always connect to the internet  I via a vpn.

I'm considering moving across to either using the ToR browser (without ToR) or the jondo browser if it is ever updated.

Thanks for reading.

for anything sensitive I use TOR and airVPN.

for normal work I use latest FireFox ESR + no scipt, https everywhere, self-destructin cookies, uBlock Origin.

 

problem is I think I read that current ESR is coming to an end very soon and they will start using that new "look" from FF v60+ wich for me is terrible. and also I can't use many add-ons on that :-(.

what's up with new noscript on new FF v60+. it looks terrible. I don't have a clue how to use it and to me it seems it lacks many of options.

 

P.S. what are the advantages of waterfox? can you use add-ons as on ESR? are they updating often and can you get it to look as older FFs?

The latest version of the Brave browser has an option to use Tor in a private tab. What do you guys think? Is it an easy way to use airvpn and tor together or would that be unwise?

If it works, it's only Tor over VPN. VPN over Tor is still only possible with Eddie so far.
