Brave was first founded in May 28, 2015

Brave 1.0.0 was released in November 9th, 2019.

 

That's 4 years spent in Beta.

 

Microsoft Edge? in January 15th 2020, the first stable version will be released. that will be 10 months spent in Beta.

 

lots of people agree with this, that Edge needs to be feature rich before it is called stable and final.

 

I wish Microsoft make a browser so that the first thing I always do after installing a Windows OS wouldn't be going to the internet and downloading a different browser because the built-in browser is not good enough for me.

 

but in order for that to happen, lots of things must be added. lots of things must be learned from different browsers.

 

one of them is Google chrome. now I don't like Google as a company and I have very good reasons for it. 

like this Google quietly removes "don't be evil" preface from code of conduct 

and this this Google has access to detailed health records on tens of millions of Americans

 

but in order to become better than them, Microsoft needs to apply the same features Google chrome has.

 

such as allowing for new tab page search engine to be changed

 

another one of the browsers that are a good examples is Brave,

Brave has Tor support for private browsing, and support for torrent downloads.

 

Support for Torrent is really awesome! I use it a lot but I have to install a torrent client such as Qbittorrent to use that protocol.

Windows has never added any support for Torrent protocol, none of the Microsoft products have had anything to do with Torrent before.

Torrent files should be handled the same way as the normal files are. one step towards this is when user clicks on a Torrent file or Torrent magnet link, the browser automatically recognizes it and starts downloading it the same way it does for HTTP/HTTPS files on servers.

 

 

Support for TOR, well that's another awesome feature that Microsoft should add to the Edge.

 

Why?

Opera has VPN support built-in and lot of people in the world use it for circumventing censorship.

Opera set up their own VPN servers but if Microsoft implements TOR into Edge, they wouldn't need to setup VPN servers and spent any money. because TOR has its own networks.

Firefox also has begun implementing their VPN and rolled it out for experiments.

this is a great opportunity for Microsoft to stay ahead of the rivals, specially Google chrome that doesn't have anything like this built-in yet.
