We are all adults... I think as long as it's not graphic it's ok.

Mr. Wolf is the youngest here, isn't he?

If we were in the middle ages I would have grandchildren by now :hoghappy: 8-[

Meh, I don't need to see cartoon titillation when the real thing is easily accessible. :lol:

Real people have never shown interest in me so I show them the same courtesy :p

Plus I prefer games to movies.

On that note I don't really care if the games use real people, drawn people, or 3d people as long as they aren't terrible looking.

Here's the SFW version of the site+game (if you needed the NSFW version I'm sure you can find it.)

Brave Browser is undeniably a commercial product first, and a privacy-centric web browser second. While the browser does have quite a few improvements to privacy compared to stock Chrome, it's designed to promote the use of a cryptocurrency (BAT) that Brave itself owns, and it has a referral program that pays browser users by how many people they can get to download Brave. Now the browser has been caught injecting its own affiliate codes into web addresses for popular cryptocurrency trading websites.

I liked Brave and what it stood for but it was constantly advertising stuff I had no interest in whatsoever, which got tiresome. Normal ads were easier to ignore.

The 2020 Browser Battle: Surfing With Speed:
Accessing the internet is one of the most basic tasks for any computer, but webpages in 2020 are incredibly complex so how the browser interprets the code and renders it as a viewable webpage is no simple task. Modern browsers have both a rendering or layout engine, as well as a scripting engine, and both factor into how well the browser can handle any particular task.

When the web first evolved, it was more or less a static affair, with webpages laid out in HyperText Markup Language, otherwise known as HTML, but as time passed websites became more and more complex, with it not uncommon today to run applications that would have been compiled programs several years ago. As such, browser performance is still an especially important metric for any PC user.

To cover its tracks, the extension didn’t call the server directly. Rather, it connected to the comment section of Britney Spears’ Instagram account. By computing a hash from a comment and using a programming technique known as a regular expression, the backdoor was able to derive the server address

Brilliant, and the meta comment of his is "Oops, I did it again" :hoghappy:
