Brave update slams the door on devious ‘bounce tracking’ technique

Brave Software has rolled out an update for its privacy-centric web browser to combat an invasive tracking technique capable of bypassing existing protections.

Over time, this practice could supposedly allow a third party to build up a detailed profile of someone’s interests.
