DTNS 3308 – Brave Enough to Browse Differently?

The Brave web browser has started voluntary testing of its new ad opt-in program where uses can choose to see targeted ads based on their browsing history. Is this a new model of how smart browsers can juggle the demands of online advertising and improved user experience?

Starring Tom Merritt, Sarah Lane, Roger Chang and Scott Johnson.

  1. Long time listener and patron here. Just a quick comment on 911 and what JuRY’s argument was. I understood him to be asking why 911 is still a voice call (so antiquated!) and not some more modern method like an app or a button press or even an sms. I do know that some 911 centers DO accept sms for contact. But a phone call seems so old school.

  2. I see that the Daily Tech News Show website is now a verified publisher with Brave. I hope you will talk about how that works out in a future episode.
