  1. Dick,
    Do you know if it plays well with Win 10? I use Tunnel Bear on my Win 7 laptops and it works great. It’s very simple and their customer service is terrific. But it doesn’t work well on my Win 10 netbook and no one can figure out why. So I’m looking for something for my netbook.

      I don’t know. I normally do not use Windows so I don’t have any experience with it there. All I can tell you is that Brave works well on my Macintosh system. I also have a Linux system but haven’t tried it there yet. I have a Chromebook also but Brave isn’t available for Chromebook.
