Sometimes there are good reasons a site needs to access local resources, such as detecting security holes or allowing developers to test their sites .

Brave will continue to use list rules to block scripts and websites known to abuse computer resources. In addition, the browser will include a whitelist που θα δίνει το πράσινο σε ιστότοπους που είναι γνωστό ότι έχουν πρόσβαση σε πόρους localhost για λόγους που ωφελούν τους χρήστες.
