So I turned a bunch of stuff off, and presuming they "do basic" privacy control, I'm having fun just loading it with extensions, and the first thing I did was add extra menus. One of them "isn't quite" horozontal, but it mimics the horozontal type stuff. The other is kind of an Alphabetical God Mode, that you can apparently move stuff up into your most used session.

And it's Not Quite Google! :)

So we'll see!

Heh mini bug, I installed so many extensions they crowded my address bar, then when I resized it, they vanished! :)
But it's working okay now, so bye bye bye Chrome unless something "insists".

Also, it seems to have some of its own adblockers native, possibly even before the Adblock extensions kick in, and I'm already up to over a thousand items blocked!

Thousands of trackers per day! Cyberpunk 2020 is here!

They’ve been trying to promote Brave since 2016, but something doesn't work ... It’s better to put an ad blocker than to ensure those inconveniences for mere pennies

Sometimes on Youtube I can't find any date for when the video was made. Is there actually none posted, or how or where do I find it?

@holt:

Do you mean when the video was actually made, or simply when that particular YouTube item (file) was posted onto YouTube?
I don't think the actual "made" date would necessarily be known/given and would not form part of the file metadata if you downloaded it.
Otherwise, the date that video file was posted onto YouTube usually/always(?) seems to be given. You could also presumably see the same metadata on the channel of the person who posted that video, where all their videos will be listed.
I usually make a note in CHS (Clipboard Help & Spell) of the video title, the YouTube source link and the date it was posted when I download a YouTube video.

Yes, that is where the date is supposed to appear, but it does not always do so.

Sorry, I meant '...when that particular YouTube item (file) was posted onto YouTube.'

Uphold handles the payments from BAT.  As I'm a content creator, I verified my account with Uphold for the BAT that I receive.

Today, I received the following e-mail:

You’re invited to join the closed beta program for our revolutionary new debit card that pays 3% CryptoBack and 1% CashBack* on all purchases.

The Uphold Card is a world-first allowing you to instantly toggle between 50+ funding sources, including cryptocurrencies, such as BTC or XRP, national currencies such as USD or GBP, as well as precious metals. With the Uphold Card, you have the freedom to spend what you want, when you want, wherever you want at nearly 50 million merchants and ATMs worldwide.

As a member of our closed beta program, you’ll receive a FREE Uphold Card before the public launch. All we ask in return is that you use the card regularly and send us feedback so that we can refine the card experience before we introduce it to the public.

As a thank you, beta cardholders will receive 3% CryptoBack and 1% CashBack during the beta program. You earn what you spend: spend BTC, earn BTC; spend USD, earn USD.

Did anyone else receive this?

I did. And I was concerned it may have been a phishing attempt.

But now that I see you got it, too, I'm less wary about that. :D

I don't get enough in the account to use it regularly as they ask.

Yeah, I think they expect people to be using Uphold to buy and hold cryptocurrency.

I thought I might transfer some lumens from the airdrop, but they don't currently accept lumens as a funding source  :-\
