Proposition 8 defined marriage as the union between one man and one woman and opposed gay marriage. For his support of the bill, Eichs was called a racist, Nazi, and inhumane. However, he did not back down on his beliefs and he has now returned to the tech scene with a newer, better internet browser. I have been using it and am quite impressed with its speed and security.
Many people read that Brendan Eich was fired from Mozilla because he made a one thousand dollar contribution to the Proposition 8 campaign. Proposition 8 was against the legal recognition of gay marriage in California. But that was not the whole issue. A key element in his scorning was that in the weeks leading up to his resignation as CEO of Mozilla, Brendan refused to publicly come out in favor of gay marriage. In stark contrast with the vast majority of spineless politicians and weak CEOs who cowered to political correctness and the over-the-top demands of the homosexual movement, Brendan stood fast for his principles. That alone, merits trying his new browser.
Catherine Corre, who is part of the Brave project, explained why Eichs chose the name:
“Brendan picked the name 'Brave' because we need users who will take a stand and fight back," Corre told LifeSiteNews. "We see third party ads and tracking as toxic, and we block that by default."
Characteristics of the new "Brave" browser:
- Brave blocks trackers and intrusive ads that can slow you down on the web.
- Brave keeps you and your information safer, effectively shielding you from 3rd party tracking and malvertisement
