Stars - the number of stars that a project has on GitHub. Growth - month over month growth in stars.
Activity is a relative number indicating how actively a project is being developed. Recent commits have higher weight than older ones.
For example, an activity of 9.0 indicates that a project is amongst the top 10% of the most actively developed projects that we are tracking.

Microsoft reduced Windows 11 update size by 40%

As for the second idea: I don't know the details of MSDelta, but updating references when the code moves is more clearly represented by a newer format Chrome has been using called Zucchini . Courgette does a complex process of disassembling (into several binary streams), aligning labels, and sending a patch of the disassembly, so the patcher has to do disassembly, patching, and reassembly. Zucchini does a more straightforward disassembly pass to note where the references are, and then patches them based on how it knows the code moved. Compared with Courgette, this involves less intermediate state so it's faster , the code is simpler, and because much more is implicit in the code motion the patches tend to be smaller.
That basic technique goes back at least to the TranslateAddress method in Exediff (1999) .
I've been meaning to write up an article on this stuff , Google doesn't seem interested in publicizing Zucchini themselves, maybe due to the patent kerfuffle around Courgette. Microsoft's document on delta compression  covers a lot of this ground.
 Some of this can be avoided, I made some changes to Courgette for a significant speed increase here: https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=504624#c39
 I did write up a bug to consider this in Firefox, with patch size comparisons, but ultimately we didn't switch from the simple power of bsdiff: https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1632374
 Their system can use info from the pre-linked objects and PDB symbol files for better alignment, I'd played around with seeding alignments like this in bsdiff and Zucchini but I don't recall it giving significant improvement. https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/previous-versions/bb417345(...3 projects | news.ycombinator.com | 28 Oct 2021
Last I heard, Courgette is deprecated (and replaced by Zucchini) .
Can we trust Microsoft with Open Source?

> I don't think there s a static linking going on there, else it would be impossible to use Electron for closed source software.
no, the closed source part can stay closed source but linking must be reallowed.
Just run "strings" on the code binary: you'll see symbols coming straight from Blink like this one: https://github.com/chromium/chromium/blob/72ceeed2ebcd505b8d...

Design patterns let you apply existing solutions to your code

And the list goes on, and on.
V8 was designed by the same engineers who built the Java Virtual Machine, and what techniques did they employ to build this massive piece of software that runs the modern web? Object oriented design, and design patterns.
It's very probable people designing modern web applications for the FAANGs are not particularly aware of design patterns, or even maybe that MVC is a design pattern even if they are using it. It's possible many design patterns aren't useful for the types of problems they are solving, or could complicate matters if they used them haphazardly.
I'm not saying this is the end all, be all, of software design. Or that "modern" functional takes on software design (most functional languages and ideas predate OOP) aren't perfectly valid, or successful. Or even that they couldn't solve many of these problems.
I'm just contesting any dogmatic rejection of what has actually been one of the most successful branches of software design.

Chromium has "Paint Preview" (aka "Freeze Dried Tabs")  which basically does this. I think it's only supported on Chrome for Android right now.

Bromite uses a compiled blocklist format (DAT). You'll notice that the default blocklist is called filter.dat. If you want to compile your own list, HERE are the instructions.
Brave Browser is known for privacy but how private is it?

"Not that good at privacy"? Even if Brave has some privacy features? Like defenses against fingerprinting, CNAME decloaking, and Ephemeral Third Party Storage?

Apparently tons of other users have the same problem as you. According to the GitHub issue: https://github.com/brave/brave-browser/issues/14685, they're waiting for Chromium first to implement it for Linux systems before Brave can integrate it.

When https://github.com/brave/brave-browser/issues/17453 gets implemented, then you should see that number drastically decrease. However, as mentioned by other commenters, removing extensions should help in the mean time.
Where should I download Brave from
1 project | reddit.com/r/brave_browser | 25 Nov 2021
To be honest if I were you I would download it from the offical website it is more safer as the software hasn't been tampered with and at the same time you don't go through if any hassle through the Epic Games Launcher. Personally I have never downloaded it from Epic Games so I can't say much about that but I can reccomend you to download it from www.brave.com cheers to you and everyone reading have a good day.
