Cliqz and Brave now allow add-ons

Article for: Everyone, especially Cliqz and Brave users
Difficulty: easy
Importance: Information only except for Cliqz and Brave users. Useful for them.

One of the main reason to use Cliqz and Brave was that they didn't allow add-ons, removing one of the most common attack vectors. They have both found that people want their add-ons and have succumbed to the pressure. Both restrict some add-ons that do potentially dangerous things so they provide a little protection. Both are privacy focused. But their security benefit over Firefox is less now than it was before.
