With Firefox no longer viable, I needed to find another browser for my purchasing and financial transactions, as well as a new place for my bookmarks. I have been using Brave for semi-anonymous searches, but I didn’t want to also use it for “sticky” transactions. Enter the Dissenter browser, brought to you by the folks over at Gab. They are getting a lot of Twitter and Facebook refugees now that the “deplatforming” of any non-Progessive viewpoints is in play.

The Dissenter memory footprint is smaller than Brave, as would be expected since Dissenter dropped the Brave Rewards feature.

The Dissenter key feature is a “universal comment” tool – you can comment on any URL on the web, and nobody will censor it, subject to Gab’s terms of service. You do need to create a Gab account to use this feature – I’ll probably sign up at a later date, but right now the Gab infrastructure is trying to cope with a half million new users per day.

The big test will be how well Dissenter works with e-commerce, banks and other financial institutions – so far so good, but I’ll file another report after a longer test period.
