    An interesting concept to be sure. I like how it's available on almost any platform.

    Based on Chromium. Not sure it's any better than any other browser, but it's certainly got some interesting ideas....

    The Brave Web Browser is Official: Meet The "ANTI-Chrome" Approach To Web Browsing | Know Your Mobile

    Grumpy, does it support plugins like LastPass yet? Can't live without Last Pass (and x-marks...).

    They said it was on the development cards since last July but I don't use so not too sure of the state of play.

    https://github.com/brave/browser-lap...pment-Timeline

    https://github.com/brave/browser-lap...ns-API-support

    Is there another choice??? preferably one that doesn't store your password database on their servers like LastPass.

    Ummm...dunno. I suppose Keypass, although I've never used it. There are no doubt some other options too. I use LastPass because it's easily portable among Linux, Windows, Android, Apple, etc, and I have a multitude of computers/devices at work and home that I use. I can't carry around a thumb drive or authentication tool, so I'm kind of stuck.

    Having said that, I'm certainly at the mercy of LastPass if it gets hacked in a way that breaks the encryption of the remotely stored password files. It seems unlikely (given this: https://www.lastpass.com/how-it-works), and I feel "reasonably" safe using it. In this case the benefits outweigh the risks (IMO). I've not implemented it yet, but it also supports Two Factor Authentication (including DUO, which I use for my Virginia Tech account), so that adds a bit more to my comfort level as well, and I'll no doubt implement it soon.

    I wish I had a better answer.
