The Brave web browser (which I am using a lot these days) seems to be the only web browser that is seriously interested in protecting your privacy. Now the software developers behind the Brave browser have added even more privacy-inducing functionality for keeping websites from tracking your online activities.
You can read the details at https://tinyurl.com/y9ghsebc.
Keep in mind that the new changes are only available in the beta test version. Once debugged, these changes presumably will be moved to the standard production version of Brave at http://www.brave.com.
Brave is available for Windows 7 or later, Macintosh, Linux, Android, and Apple iOS (iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch).

“The Brave web browser (which I am using a lot these days) seems to be the only web browser that is seriously interested in protecting your privacy.”
It seems you are not well informed in this case. Safari is the only Browser with a really strong built-in Tracking and Browser-Fingerprinting Protection and which don’t show your real IP via WebRTC. Of course you need additional Content Blocker, a trustful VPN and a Firewall to stop Google spying on you, but Brave is not the only Browser out there really caring about privacy.

See: https://www.slant.co/versus/5229/16094/~safari_vs_brave and especially the items on that page listed as “Cons.” Two items strike mw the most important differences:
“Things like https everywhere and no tracking are standard with Brave. In most other browsers, things like these are optional at best.”
“While Safari is currently available gratis (without monetary charge) on Mac OS X, it is currently not libre (meaning that it does not allow users to view the source code used to create, to modify that code, or to redistribute modifications) and is therefore neither free nor open-source software.”
I prefer open source software where anyone can download and view the code, looking for bugs or privacy-invasive code.
Thank you for your link. You are right regarding HTTPS Everywhere (but there are plug-ins available), but the Intelligent Tracking Prevention is standard in Safari (you can opt-out this privacy protection).
It was just important to me to point out that Safari is an outstanding browser that is also very concerned about protecting the privacy of its users.
By the way, I really like your blog and am very happy to have stumbled upon it.
