With all the tracking that exists today, I have been looking at minimizing what all these big corporations are collecting about me. There are many ways to do this but I decided to try the Brave browser.
It is easy to install on Ubuntu from these instructions: https://brave.com/linux/#linux
Only a few commands:
sudo apt install apt-transport-https curl gnupg curl -s https://brave-browser-apt-release.s3.brave.com/brave-core.asc | sudo apt-key --keyring /etc/apt/trusted.gpg.d/brave-browser-release.gpg add - echo "deb [arch=amd64] https://brave-browser-apt-release.s3.brave.com/ stable main" | sudo tee /etc/apt/sources.list.d/brave-browser-release.list sudo apt update sudo apt install brave-browser
It is done in less than 2 minutes.
The first time I ran Brave I changed the default search engine to be https://duckduckgo.com/ so that I am closing another door on the tracking.
I have been using it for a few weeks and I am very happy.
It is always interesting to see the number of items that have been blocked. There is a lot of tracking going on (obviously).
