New Web Browser? I Wanna See You Use "Brave"

Brendan Eich, martyr to free speech thought and victim of the PC Police of Vicimistan, is offering a wb with ad-blocking built-in, that blocks ads -- BY DEFAULT!!!!!!!

It will replace them with other ads, essentially, but as the brave Brendan says, "We need to clean the swimming pool."

Look, I don't expect something for nothing, I don't mind giving information out to enhance an advertiser's chances of showing me something that will capture my attention when I use free content, but he correctly says the internets a mess.
(Well, I guess if he's talking chlorine, to continue the metaphor, it's a cesspool.)

Looking forward to trying it out?
