    Too bad they don’t include Brave.

Maybe they're also worried about the dominance of Google's browser engine.

By the way, do you have any stats to share of what browsers Hubski users use?

    Bowers isn’t the first Trump-connected Deutsche exec to commit suicide. In 2014, Deutsche derivatives analyst William S. Broeksmit, who reportedly had links to Trump and Russia, hung himself from a dog leash at his home in London.

Huh, this is news to me. Though 2014 was of course before Trump started dominating the news cycle 24/7.

I've been using put.re for a while now. IMGZ looks promising. These Imgur alternatives tend to be short lived, so it's nice to have a reserve one. Rest in peace eho.st.

    to kill monetizing users with ads

Isn't the whole business model of Brave to monetise users with ads?

Same here. I'm happy with Firefox (plus ad blocker extension), and I'm subscribed to two different micropayment services; Flattr and Scroll.

I can't recall all the quality-of-life changes I did when they upgraded me at work. What I do recall is disabling Snap Assist and disabling notifications. I suppose both could potentially be useful, but neither suits my workflow.

The same has happened to me a few times. Hubski needs a warning when a link has been posted before. :-)
