BLOG: Brave recruits Ryan ‘FanBoy’ Brown, top maintainer of EasyList & EasyPrivacy, FanBoy Adblock Lists, to help support growth of ad blocking/tracker filter lists and web privacy community
Brave will be supporting the Web privacy community by funding and supporting the growth and maintenance of tracking and advertising blocking filter lists. Brave uses many such lists, some of which Brave maintains, some developed through online communities (EasyList and EasyPrivacy), and some generated by other terrific Web privacy activists. Filter lists help prevent websites from sharing your information with advertisers and trackers, make websites load faster, and save you data.
Brave will be contracting with Ryan Brown (aka “FanBoy” of “Fanboy Adblock Lists”) to support his work maintaining EasyList and EasyPrivacy. Ryan is currently the top committer to these lists, and has been maintaining them as a volunteer.
