    I just installed it, it does seem faster but some issues with it too.

    Had ublock Origin already, did not know about https everywhere. Thanks for that!

    I'm kind of skeptical when it comes to trying out new browsers, just a little too paranoid at times. I'll just be sticking to Chrome with extensions

    Who is backing this? I'm sure it isn't completely free.

    IDK who is backing it, but this looks like how they are monetizing it:

    Wasn't this browser initially started by the former Firefox exec who got canned because he donated to an anti gay marriage platform in California?

    Yeah, just found these reviews too, not clear to me what's up now as these are over a year old reviews - things may have evolved / changed.
