A couple days ago, I posted asking how to add Brave search as my default search engine here:
Now, I see that Brave is blocking Tor requests for search This make me sad, but maybe Brave will change this in the future? Overall, I have a good impression of Brave’s respect for user privacy, but this really makes me second-guess whether I should use Brave search.
Neither is the company behind the Tor Browser’s default search engine? I’ve always wondered why DDG seems to be the most trusted privacy-oriented search engine; is the no-tracking policy somehow verifiable?
Regarding the OP, I have tested Brave Search on several circuits and I got a no-robot-check once. So probably not blocking exits specifically, but not particularly Tor-friendly either. Which is funny considering Brave Browser has this ‘Tor’ mode included for extra theatre. TB in safest mode does work, though.
