The ultimate browser to use in 2020 is Brave Browser.

Read the full article here:
Funny you bring that up. Some reliable sources are calling Brave the last secure browser. AFAIK it mostly mimics the security extensions I already installed with Chrome. A couple of things I have noticed is Chrome gets some bad habits namely going into endless loops after I installed Brave.
I also question even though brave has some deals worked out with web sites on content blocking I did get the old "are you using an adblocker?" halt on some pages. Not real intuitive on how to disable whatever is ticking the website off only a call home to Brave and let them know it's a problem popup.
So I guess for a noob Brave is a viable choice it has a lot built into it already. I prefer to roll my own so to speak and the possible interference with Chrome is a problem so the user may need to choose one or the other.

Indeed @DVDR_Dog
Brave is on the unsecure browser side mostly because it takes about one month to update to the current stable Chromium build. So it is always 1 month behind security wise of any Chromium based browser. (Chrome, Edge, etc)

The privacy features that has implemented, are easy for an advanced user to set them into Chrome. (just a few unticks and one extension is enough)

There was a scandal about the browser using affiliate links when you type specific words on web search. After a lot of criticism it got patched, but overall the "bad practices" idea stigmatized the project.

Last but not least the main developer behind brave project is a prick and a homophobic person (based on his twitter feed). All these together is a big no for that browser for me.

If i was lazy i would just install it to my grandfather or something, but that's about it.
