    Project mention: What third-party filters do you guys use with Brave? | | 2021-11-09

    Anyway, you should use the problem is that for whatever reason Brave import list can't use it because that's Brave development in many areas, it has to be .txt or that's what I think not the size. All I did was to download filter file (wonder why is not a txt file... I mean sounds stupid it is not), add the txt extension and then load it with a local server like Servez (, then you just type http://localhost:8080/filter.txt and it works just fine, and you just need to replace it, load the server and hit update from time to time so it is frequently updated. Not the easiest way but that's what Brave can do today, it would be easier if it supported file:// and not just http/https URL too, but that's how I loaded it on my side.
