L.S.

Is avast secure browser staying main stream, considering the search engine used?

read: https://brave.com/brave-search/

" Brave Search and the Brave browser constitute the industry’s first independent, privacy-preserving alternative to Google Chrome and Google Search, which rely on tracking users across sites and have 70 percent and 92 percent market share, respectively".
