The Brave browser has a new way to protect your privacy online: an option to use the DuckDuckGo search engine by default in private tabs.
Private browsing, also known as incognito in Google's Chrome browser, is a special browser mode that doesn't leave traces of your browsing history on your computer.
But Brave Software says searches with DuckDuckGo will help keep your personal behavior details from leaking out onto websites, too.
Unfortunately, that's not true," DuckDuckGo Chief Executive Gabriel Weinberg said in a statement.
Brave plans to bring the feature to mobile versions of its browser in the first quarter of 2018.
That could change, though, as online advertisers learn to pry more, to fingerprint us by our browser characteristics, and as browsers make more of an effort to shield us from what can be seen as abusive behavior.
