    A Recommendation For Browser and Search

    I've been running this combination for a few weeks now and I'm impressed.

    Name:  FireShot Capture 003 - Fast and Private Brave Browser Chooses Qwant as its Default Search En_ - .jpg

    “Brave is a daring browser that innovates both technologically and economically, with a real ambition to create a sustainable ecosystem for the Internet,” said Eric Leandri, President and co-founder of Qwant. “We are very pleased that Brave has chosen to make Qwant the default search engine in France and Germany.”

    “By combining Brave and Qwant, users can enjoy the Web in a way that does not violate their privacy,” added Brendan Eich, CEO and co-founder of Brave Software. “With the ongoing privacy invasions from technology giants that make a living by exploiting user data, people need tools to fight back and take a stand to protect themselves.”

    The Brave browser provides an ad-free experience to its users, but its model is to reconnect publishers with ad-blocking users and reward them both. By removing intermediaries, Brave resets the current broken digital advertising system that is penalizing publishers. Users who download Brave are granted tokens (Basic Attention Tokens, or BAT) every month through the integrated wallet of the browser. Users then donate the tokens to reward their favorite publishers and creators via the integrated Brave Payments system. Soon, Brave users will also be able to opt into viewing privacy-preserving ads and receive up to 70% of the associated revenue, which they can also use to reward the content they value on the Web.

    ok

    you can go to brave.com, hit the "download brave" button, that should get you to the page you need. It brought me to the linux download page but if you are on windows, you should get the windows installer. Download the installer and run it. After running the installer you will be able to open the browser from your windows menu. It asks to import all of your bookmarks, passwords, etc, go ahead and do that. After set up it will run just like your current browser only faster and more secure.

    If you install it, come back here and I'll try to explain how to make qwant the default search engine. Qwant is default search engine in some languages but you have to follow a few steps for the english version.

    Use thunderbird.

    https://www.thunderbird.net/en-US/

    Thunderbird can be configured to work seamlessly with Google's Gmail service.

    BTW, I do not recommend Gmail, it is spyware.

    Is thunderbird another e-mail account, or does it just help gmail to work with this new browser setup?

    Thunderbird is a stand alone email app. It doesn't go through a web site. You can use your email without ever logging into google.com account.
