            Twitter uses/reports naive fingerprinting. Tweaking user agent/whatever doesn't actually prevent fingerprinting solutions from determining your OS. Moreover, they give you a worse score since you lie. Brave does a much better job at preserving privacy & security than Firefox.

            I mean, they won't allow you to browse the website without constantly throwing captcha at you.

    Perhaps because deep down, it is just another Google Chrome that doesn't really care about the user.

    It's the only one with randomized fingerprinting out of the big browsers. Not sure what you mean by that because it should be constantly rotating what your OS is at least on most sites, I tried it out before and it would spin up completely false information like W10 instead of W11 and Chrome instead of Brave etc.

        Brave themselves said the aggressive setting is counterproductive and they are gonna remove it.

          it's not counterproductive, it's just annoying because it's too strict and breaks specific sites. but i used it with stuff like protonmail/gmail/steam/discord/twitch/twitter/wikipedia/fandom/imdb etc and 99% of normalgay sites work anyway, it might break you signing up for steam though or making goyim accounts on tiktok etc so they want to remove it so normalgays dont seethe. standard still performs better than any other major browser anyway

            It also makes you and the dozen other people who enabled that setting stick out like a sore thumb.

            It doesn't because randomized fingerprinting is a thing in 2024. This is also moronic because you are guaranteed to fingerprint yourself by changing any niche setting, do you just use Windows 10 Home in United States with Google Chrome and no adblock with all default settings and telemetry? That's the only way to avoid customization and fingerprinting.

            Its about the level of niche'ness.
            There are literally millions of Brave users across a wide variety of operating systems. Their default tracking/fingerprint protection works well because there's a large pool to blend into.
            However because strict mode completely disables webgl it breaks a ton of websites. This means only a few thousand of Braves users actually enable it, and thus they all stand out substantially more.
            This is exactly the reason they are removing the feature altogether.
            The farbling they do for the normal fingerprinting protection is more than sufficient.

            web sites are literal aids, they check a billion different thing on your os. if you have a weird timezone/country/city/windows edition/version/linux or any sort of anti tracking you are guaranteed to have some sort of fingerprint. this is where brave compensates a bit with randomized fingerprinting features. You are absolutely not ruining your fingerprint by disabling brave daily telemetry ping, or by setting Ad/Antitracking to Strict

            Where the frick did I say anything about that?
            Brave themselves have written a post about why they are removing strict mode, go read that.

            you dont have to trust everything brave says lmao, most people in comments on brave forums pointed out its mostly them removing it because its a headache to work on while a tiny minority of brave users uses it and the ones that do sometimes complain like autists about brave breaking their sites.

    You can change the useragent with --user-agent="<Your user agent>" parameter (options after the cmdline in the shortcut) and be done with it, if you're using linux, copy the brave .desktop file from /usr/share/applications , copy it to ~/.local/share/applications and do the same.

      Also, DON'T USE EXTENTIONS!!!
      Most websites (including cloudflare-protected) will realize the user agent changing and mihjr block you from accessing the website.
