Brave Browser is set to launch a feature that prevents “bounce tracking,” a technique used by sneaky websites to circumvent privacy features, such as third-party cookie blocking, to continue tracking users’ web activity.
“Bounce tracking is a way for trackers to track you even if browser-level privacy protections are in place,” Brave’s announcement post explains.
“Privacy respecting browsers try to prevent sites from learning about your behaviors and activities on other sites. Bounce tracking attempts to circumvent these protections by gaming how your browser behaves when you browse from one site to another.”
To prevent bounce tracking, Brave developed a defense mechanism called “Unlinkable Bouncing,” which curtails the bounce tracking websites’ ability to track users by creating a link between previous and current web activity. In other words, Unlinkable Bouncing makes websites forget a user’s web activity.
Synder described Unlinkable Bouncing as an application of “first-party ephemeral storage,” which is a defense mechanism the tech industry is working on to ensure websites are more forgetful of users’ web activity.
“This is a set of techniques that allow sites to remember (or identify) you only for as long as you’re visiting the site,” it’s explained. “It’s similar to – though more powerful and user-friendly than – clearing your browser storage every time you leave a site.”
Unlinkable Bouncing is already available in the browser’s experimental build Brave Nightly. It is expected to be available in the upcoming release, version 1.37.

Will America-First News Outlets Make it to 2023?
Things are looking grim for conservative and populist news sites.
There’s something happening behind the scenes at several popular conservative news outlets. 2021 was bad, but 2022 is proving to be disastrous for news sites that aren’t “playing ball” with the corporate media narrative. It’s being said that advertisers are cracking down, forcing some of the biggest ad networks like Google and Yahoo to pull their inventory from conservative outlets. This has had two major effects. First, it has cooled most conservative outlets from discussing “taboo” topics like Pandemic Panic Theater, voter fraud, or The Great Reset. Second, it has isolated those ad networks that aren’t playing ball.
Certain topics are anathema for most ad networks. Speaking out against vaccines or vaccine mandates is a certain path to being demonetized. Highlighting voter fraud in the 2020 and future elections is another instant advertising death penalty. Throw in truthful stories about climate change hysteria, Critical Race Theory, and the border crisis and it’s easy to understand how difficult it is for America-First news outlets to spread the facts, share conservative opinions, and still pay the bills.
Without naming names, I have been told of several news outlets who have been forced to either consolidate with larger organizations or who have backed down on covering certain topics out of fear of being “canceled” by the ad networks. I get it. This is a business for many of us and it’s not very profitable. Those of us who do this for a living are often barely squeaking by, so loss of additional revenue can often mean being forced to make cuts. That means not being able to cover the topics properly. Its a Catch-22: Tell the truth and lose the money necessary to keep telling the truth, or avoid the truth and make enough money to survive. Those who have chosen survival simply aren’t able to spread the truth properly.
We will never avoid the truth. The Lord will provide if it is His will. Our job is simply to share the facts, spread the Gospel, and educate as many Americans as possible while exposing the forces of evil.
To those who have the means, we ask that you please donate. We have options available now, but there is no telling when those options will cancel us. We just launched a new GiveSendGo page. We also have our GivingFuel page. There have been many who have been canceled by PayPal, but for now it’s still an option. Your generosity is what keeps these sites running and allows us to get the truth to the masses. We’ve had great success in growing but we know we can do more with your assistance.
Thank you, and God Bless!
