I claim I was poor, but it turns I had a single mother who could actually work a job so I don't know what it really means to be poor.

Instead of being a lovely nerd about it maybe you could explain the problem?

The problem with Brave?

what advantages does it bring you? it's downstream of chromium so you'll be waiting longer for security patches, and it's unique selling point is adblocking by default... except for brave payments that's just a indirect way of selling the same marketing information but of a specific demographic that thinks they've opted out of tracking

i'm waiting for another red flag to be hidden in the next post at this point

I use Brave because adblocking and password manager integration aren't features that chrome supports on mobile. I use chrome on desktop.

That's incorrect. Android 8.0 and newer has a password autofill API that apps like Keepass2Android utilize very nicely, so password manager integration on mobile Chrome works perfectly.

What?

Yep the content blockers in iOS work pretty well. I used to VPN to my home network which was running PiHole as another layer of blocking, but I stopped bothering because there are few ads that get through any more.

I'm going to sound like an idiot, but how to use the native one? I've been using a downloaded one called Purify.

There's not a native one, just 3rd-party blockers like Purify. By the way, Purify was found to be sort of bad. Consensus has been to use Firefox Focus if you want free, or 1Blocker if you don't mind paying.

1Blocker is what I picked a couple of years ago, don't notice it's running other than websites becoming more readable

Thanks for the heads-up. I've been using it for like two years, and I didn't do a ton of research first. I don't mind paying as long as it's not like $20, so I'll look at both.
