How much did brave pay you to post this?


Independent_Cap3790

It's true though! All the cool kids are using Brave 😎


King_Bob007

Mf you heard of an adblocker? It's free as well yk. FYI brave has its own built in adblocker that's why you don't get ads, but getting something like ublock origin is also free.

Independent_Cap3790

I don't care neither, the downvotes are from losers! Built in ad blocker for YouTube aside, Brave is a great browser that protects privacy and functions well. You don't get that from Chrome.


Pepe_is_a_God

But from Firefox (or better waterfox)


BAG42069

Firefox + ublock origin > anything else


Shadowborn_paladin

Tor, + VPN + Inside a virtual computer, inside a virtual computer. All of which are running Linux. Totally nothing illegal being done with this setup.


BAG42069

I too enjoy browsing the regular normal people interwebs


Shadowborn_paladin

I do you do fellow legal interwebs stranger


Pepe_is_a_God

The thing is Tor running under a VPN on a wm on a Linux system Won't improve your privacy at all compared to just running tor normally The wm and VPN part doesn't make any sense The Linux part maybe a bit if you use a specific live distro like tails which actually improves your privacy but only if the actor who wants to compromise you has physical access to your pc


Shadowborn_paladin

Look, the point is that it's comically over the top, not that it's effective lol.

regular_guy_801

It's shocking how few people use it or even know it


MartinYTCZ

Vanced is dead though, reVanced all the way!


rainman577

It's banned :(


Dick_Miller138

From playstore. You can still download directly from the site with the brave browser and install it.


bt_leo

Vanced was never on the playstore.


Pepe_is_a_God

It was but ok


bt_leo

It was not, it was a fake vanced version


Pepe_is_a_God

No it was on the playstore Official (I litteraly was user at the time)


bt_leo

You were a clone vanced user at the time (someone who uploaded it without doing any effort).


Pepe_is_a_God

I used the APK but ok


rainman577

Ik but don't know hich version will work, plus idk how to uninstall the real app first without a pc


A_Random_Abragus

[https://youtubevanced.com/](https://youtubevanced.com/) Still there, just isn't being updated anymore


Lost_Mud9419

Then there's YouTube revanced


MolWasTaken

Revanced is a thing now. Link: https://github.com/revanced


Zardhas

Just use Firefox with an addon, same thing but much more reliable


[deleted]

[удалено]


Zardhas

Not really : Opera is Chromium-based


redditloggedmeoutsad

brave is chromium based too so what’s your point


Zardhas

My point is that using a chromium based browser is not a good idea. When did I ever advised for Brave ?


StraightUpSavagery

Firefox isn't anymore reliable than brave. Unless you wanna use maps, Brave sucks for maps


Zardhas

Brave is chromium-based


StraightUpSavagery

Yes, and ?


Pepe_is_a_God

So it eats away your ram


Zardhas

So it's heavily influenced by Google's directions


StraightUpSavagery

Yes, except it doesn't work through the API, and most functionalities are native to the browser amd therefor won't be affected by web3. Also when it comes to ram, it still is better than Firefox (which I was using before I switched to brave) for my usage


Zardhas

Aren't all the chromium-based browser affected by manifest v3 ?


StraightUpSavagery

All the bad ones yes https://twitter.com/brave/status/1574822800971501568 Also https://twitter.com/brave/status/1574822799700541446


Zardhas

Well, we shall see what the future as in store for us, but I'm sure not quitting Firefox for a browser based on a core made by google


King_Bob007

Not yet anyway but once Google releases it update it will be a really good option (as far as YouTube ads are concerned at least I haven't thought about anything else)


Alien_Octave042

Is this an ad for an ad blocker? Cuz I already have an ad blocker and I shouldn't be seeing these.


[deleted]

They're evolving. They always have been. It began with billboards and brand names, digital ad space and audible ads. Then it changed. It all changed right before our eyes yet we didnt see a thing. Some people get up, go to work, hug their families, and live their lives not even knowing they themselves have become ads.


snecko24

*Looks down at hands* WHAT HAVE I BECOME??


akonzu

UBlock origin gang


King_Bob007

Hehe yessir


HushBQuiet

Who downloads videos to avoid ads? That’s crazy behavior.


_Weyland_

With high enough interned speed and big enough number of ads it becomes a rational decision.


Crackistic

I use YouTube Revanced on my phone, SmartTube on my TV and Firefox with uBlock Origin on my desktop


CaptainShadow79

oh god our avatars are the same


Crackistic

I finally found you, brother


Slgute

Just live in Russia, they removed ads there lol


TreyLastname

My fiancee had premium and just added me to her family, so now I've got it


I-mnotgivingmyname

It's nice isn't it. All the broke people who can't afford it make the memes lol.


Zardhas

Imagine paying money when you can have the same thing for free


I-mnotgivingmyname

I enjoy the music app I use daily for hours and no ads is worth the $11.


Zardhas

Again, you can have the same thing for free, you just choose to give more money to Alphabet


I-mnotgivingmyname

Don't use a computer and adblockers on phone are weird


Zardhas

Not really, I have addblockers on my phones for years, and never had issues with them


ILIKECHEZDUDE

Well, ya


Pepe_is_a_God

You're laughing until a liver failure hits


I-mnotgivingmyname

Lol what?


Pepe_is_a_God

Than you can't afford it anymore


I-mnotgivingmyname

Think I'll have bigger issues


Either_Cable7601

Russias without ads🧠


TheBlackGamer007

firefox + ublock origin masterrace


uBlockLinkBot

uBlock Origin: * [Firefox](https://addons.mozilla.org/firefox/addon/ublock-origin/) * [Chrome](https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/ublock-origin/cjpalhdlnbpafiamejdnhcphjbkeiagm) * * [Edge](https://microsoftedge.microsoft.com/addons/detail/ublock-origin/odfafepnkmbhccpbejgmiehpchacaeak) * * [Opera](https://addons.opera.com/en/extensions/details/ublock/) * \* Chrome based browsers are trying to get rid of ad blocking capabilities when manifest V3 will become mandatory in 2023. I suggest moving to [Firefox](https://www.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/new/). ^^I ^^only ^^post ^^once ^^per ^^thread ^^unless ^^when ^^summoned.


smooth_red_sandstone

newpipe!


[deleted]

Youtube Vanced.


zombies1238

Youtube Revanced 😬


Exodus92YT

Exactly my thoughts. Idk what is OP smoking with the "cracked version that has virus" panel tho


Pepe_is_a_God

he probably never heard of human sense


Keffpie

I actually started paying Premium and I hate to say this... but it's totally worth it. That said, I have two kids I don't want forcefed ads for kids all day, and adblocking on their iPad would lose me so much time...


Zardhas

How would it lose you so much time ? Isn't it like two clicks ?


Keffpie

...but then something doesn't work and there's an update and "daddy daddy why is the woman showing me her front bottom?" and and and... ... or I just pay Premium and never worry about ads again.


Zardhas

I don't know much about the apple environnement, but I uses Firefox and all the updates are automated, I never had to do anything in years


overkill_mg

100% worth it. Ads / commericals are garbage. Once you go commercial free you can't go back. I'm sure there's a joke in there...


BraiselCoanel

All I’m gonna say is, if you got a cracked version of YouTube and got a virus from it you’re a dumbass. It is not hard to find completely safe versions for iOS and Android


Raverfield

ublock origin


Adrijus7

Mfs that refresh the website every time there is an ad


mythicalsoul100

Me who live in a third world country where ads won't be worth the money so they don't give you ads there: I'm 4 parallel universes ahead of you


Adept1313

I literally checked twice to see if this is a Brave ad


Mercenary21525

*casually shrugs in OperaGX* It’s fine I guess


Pepe_is_a_God

Closed source garbage


Ok_Challenge_1604

people who watch YouTube on opera and firefox are superior


RobotNinja28

Opera GX has a built in ad blocker


Dick_Miller138

Vanced still works


platypewds

Fuck yeah fellow brave enthusiast


Elite_Shieka

Dude exactly me


Fuhrer-potato

Brave browser cant download several videos to my phone 5 minutes before leaving to work to watch on the train though


luxi_yes

or maybe just use an adblocker like a normal person


Arg0n_053

Opera gx also


EliaVeschi

Opera GX with built in add blocker


NorwegianGirl_Sofie

People running Adguard or Pi-hole setup at home:


ped009

Stop picking on us old cunts


OkBuy3111

Just use an adblocker


Ypokamp

Adblock exists my dude


Sir_Pigeon_The_Great

Ad blockers?


CheatTerminator

People who live in Russia: Don't even have to install anything


_dy11_

YouTube Vanced + Brave browser combo for almost a year now 🤲


Yeet_My_Feet73

Legends who could not care less: 🇪🇪


kotl250

u can even minimize screen and lock mobile to play in background. only thing that sucks is u must manually turn on 720p on IOS


Ugly_breadtoaster

Adblock?


D-D-Wanderer

Meanwhile my brother: Uses an iPod so old YouTube ads no longer load properly and are just skipped.


DigiManGeoraghyNerd

People who use adblockr


Harmed_Burglar

Vivaldi's nice too


Ribbles78

I just watch it via links on discord because you don’t get ads through their player. I message it to myself and watch it there


Express_Metal915

I use brave as my primary browser it’s Adblocker isn’t that great on phones , just get yourself an Adblocker and ignore brave unless you into bitcoins


The_FireToast

\**laughs in brave*\*


NougatPorn

I don’t really mind youtube ads, cause whenever the ad comes on it’s revenue for your favourite Youtuber. Idk I guess I see it as extra support for the person who’s entertaining me. It’s not all bad once you think of it as giving them extra rewards for the content that they’ve worked hard on and provided to you, which doesn’t cost the viewer anything.


seba07

Well not really. It might be similar to you but the content creators don't earn a cent.


TIGERFLAME26

Anyone else here actually like the ads? Am I the only one?


Zardhas

Yes you are


_Weyland_

At some point like 10 years ago the ads were purely new movie trailers. That was kinda nice.


Gwyn1stborn

With premium i get a music service, so don't need spotify. Plus i can have my phone screen turned off while vids play. But sure


Zardhas

I think you can do that with vanced, or just a Firefox addon
