A couple of weeks ago I had Linux Mint installed and was searching for a new browser, so the other night after researching on Duck Duck Go I chose Brave. Here's an article on it.

So far I'm extremely happy. It is super fast and blocks all kind of crap in real time. I love the dark screen mode also. I'm still playing with it

Why I chose the Brave Browser Empty Why I installed Linux Mint

This is pretty geeky but if you've been searching for a new OS instead of Apple, Microsoft etc., you can have Linux with and alongside other existing OS. For example: on my laptop and I have Linux Mint on the same system as Windows. I still can use Chrome Browser, Firefox and now Brave browser etc.

A side note, I had an old IPod the silver one. Remember that one? Anyways I had almost 4 thousand songs and a couple of nights ago I downloaded them to my Toshiba laptop. Yes their is a learning curve but it is easier than I anticipated.

I very boldly switched from bias ply tires to radial ply tires and never looked back. Damn the learning curve!
