The Brave Browser offers the prospect of speed and security. But how well does it work with the Office 365 browser apps? As it happens, pretty well, with some exceptions. Here's what I discovered when I test-drove Brave with OWA, Teams, SharePoint Online, Yammer, Planner, and Stream.

G Suite Gets an Executive Reboot to Revamp Office 365 Foe

Javier Soltero, ex-boss of Outlook, is now running G Suite for Google.
