Gener8 Browser

(Windows and macOS, available worldwide but redemption only available in the UK)


Gener8 Browser is built from the open-source browser, Chromium that has two modes available for you: rewards and privacy.


Since the privacy mode is pretty self-explanatory with limiting companies from tracking your data online while removing ads, let’s get into how the rewards mode will benefit you.


In rewards mode, all the ads you’ll see will be replaced with the ones generated by Gener8 based off on your data in exchange for Gener8 points that you can use for redeeming gift cards, physical products, deals, and discounts.


Since these ads are tailored to your personal interests, you’ll love the fact that you’re still earning points while you’re browsing online normally as usual.


While Google [Chrome] disrespects you by using your personal data to generate revenue for themselves when you use their browser as a “free” service. So I believe that Gener8 will give you a better value for your time with a fair compensation for your data.


You know what else Gener8 has that Google Chrome doesn’t? RAM. You finally get so much more free RAM when you open multiple tabs with Gener8 compared to Chrome so you can tell Google to go suck it with whatever they coded in their browser!


So what are you waiting for? You should try out one of the best browsers that rewards you for your data now.



Pros:

  • Lightweight and easy to use

  • No need to go into the settings to tell websites not to track you or install extensions for it since it’s already been implemented in the browser

  • Websites such as Facebook won’t be able to track you

  • Blocks annoying cookie banners

  • A random identifier is given to you in Rewards mode for a more privacy focused experience

  • Your browsing data is anonymized to generate reports

  • You own your own data that you generate at all times and no else


Cons:

  • Redeeming products is only available in the UK

  • Limited physical products available

  • Unable to use an alias email to sign up (if you have one)


Other Notes:

  • Under Privacy mode, Gener8 prevents sending out sensitive data to thousands of third-party tracking and advertising companies which gives you a cleaner, faster browsing experience.

  • Gener8 is not responsible for the websites/content the ads link to

  • Gener8 Sentinel, a different service, sees if your email address has been a part of any public data breaches using services provided by haveibeenpwned.com

  • If you have not used your account within 3 years, you will get an email notice about your account and data being permanently deleted within 90 days unless you log back in


The Verdict:


Other than the fact of how lightweight and fast it is compared to other browsers, Gener8 is a pretty solid for everyday use since a majority of ads are replaced for smoother experience with the exception of stubborn pop-ups from external sources when you go on certain websites regardless of which browser you’re on.


As for the rewards, there are offers and charitable organizations you can donate to. The only thing you can bid on are the gift cards which I have no experience in since I’m located in the US but the system will definitely change in the future.


You can see the marketplace for yourself by clicking here.


Gener8 does have plans on expanding to other countries so I can see the potential that they could have in the future when it comes data protection and compensation when giving it to other companies.

Surf

(US and Canada region only [for now])

[Not the actual logo since Surf won't let anyone use theirs according to their Terms of Service. Designed by BZZRINCANTATION.]


Surf is a browser extension that allows you to passively earn from your browsing data which is available on all major browsers including Chrome, Firefox, Microsoft Edge, Opera, and any other Chromium compatible browser.


If you find that filling out surveys or viewing ads are painfully annoying, then this browser extension will make your life feel so much easier since you don’t have to change your day-to-day routine.


Since they are against big tech companies selling over $500 billion (USD) worth of data from tracking and selling people’s data, including yours, without a single cent of compensation, you can believe that Surf is here to help you change that.


And you can easily ignore this extension running in the background like how employers ghosted your past job applications.


So start installing this extension now and get rewarded from your browsing data you automatically submit.



Pros:

  • Works with adblocker and any VPN

  • Data is anonymized and sold to brands while removing personally identifiable information and specific browsing data

  • You have full transparency and control over your data


Cons:

  • No withdrawals to PayPal or anything that involves transferring money to a bank account

  • If you visit certain websites such as ecommerce sites, publication, news sites, social media platforms, or streaming services, the exact link and/or what you’ve searched for will be submitted despite the fact that it is anonymized

  • But you have the ability to remove any information within the past 24 hours

  • Confidentiality not guaranteed when communicating to support or the security of data transmitted over the internet or public networks in connection with your usage of the extension

  • Use a private and secure email provider in this situation

  • Any links from the extension is not guaranteed free of viruses, worms, trojan horses or disabling devices or other code according to their terms of service

  • Apparently, you have to notify the support team immediately if this happens


Other Notes:

  • Currently still in a beta

  • Only one account per person

  • You can pause activity for Surf

  • Data will not be shared in incognito mode or a private window

  • Your points and account will expire in 10 years if there’s no activity on there such as earning or redeeming

  • Ability to refer up to 25 people per day and up to 10 successful referrals per account

  • Once you’ve reached 10 referrals, you would be eligible to become a Surf affiliate where both the affiliate and the referee will receive 1000 points for successfully signing up using an active affiliate link

  • If you don’t delete any browsing activity data within 24 hours, you can delete all your browsing activity within 30 days

  • After 30 days, your browsing activity data will be aggregated and de-identified so it is no longer associated with you

  • If you delete your account, your browsing data will be deleted also


The Verdict:


Ever since I installed this extension, I pretty much ignored it and the points I’ve accumulated until writing this post. I’ve earned a decent amount until I switched browsers and forgotten that I haven’t installed it yet.


There’s a lot of offers, discounts, gift cards, and physical products (which tends to include a gift card as a bonus such as a prepaid Visa card) you can redeem for, especially a PS5 that no one has been actually able to scalp yet.


As for an annual subscription of Netflix, it got removed quite some time ago due to issues with 3rd party providers being less reliable so Surf is working with brands directly instead according to their Discord.


There’s a few charitable organizations you can donate to as well such as Girls Who Code and Clean Water Fund but those are limited.


Even though it’s still in beta, they are offering a lot of products despite being a fairly new start-up company and that result has proved to me that they’re showing a lot of potential in the future.



Click here to sign for Surf.


When you sign up for Surf, we both get 1,000 points after earning your first 750 points. To be successful, you must have Surf installed and browse regularly.
