Brave Browser So Far and WordPress Innovations

I was just about to write a quick little blog post about how I think the Brave browser is nice and fast, but then I tired to get into Google Sheets to look something up and it didn’t work in Brave. Neither did logging into my WordPress (self-hosted) site. I had to switch to Safari […]
