    Just came across this browser its based on Chromium, with a big focus on privacy. What makes it different is you can opt into viewing adverts and receive BAT crypto currency, or you can purchase BAT coin and use it to tip creators.

    I have been using it for a couple of weeks now I haven't setup a wallet yet with it so by default it blocks adverts on all websites. So far its been very good, just as fast as any other browser I have used, and the add blocking works well, it also blocks all tracking. It does miss some features you find in chrome, however nothing major and there are plugins for almost everything you might need as in auto language translation. I have been using it on both Android and Windows. Here is a overview of it.
