Is it the next Chrome? The Brave web browser has some unique attributes that will make it VERY attractive to some users. Brave has gotten more attention than most new browsers.
Brave is a very secure, fast, and stable browser that blocks ads and trackers and effectively helps make its users more anonymous online
What is the Brave browser?
Brave is a more-or-less standard browser that lets users navigate to websites, run web apps and display or play online content. Like other browsers, it is free to download and use, remembers site authentication information and can block online ads from appearing on sites.
What makes Brave different from other browsers?
Brave also eliminates all ad trackers, the often-tiny page components advertisers and site publishers deploy to identify users so that they know what other sites those users visit or have visited. Trackers are used by ad networks to show products similar to ones purchased or just considered, leading to the meme of persistently seeing the same ad no matter where one navigates.
Brave loads fast. How fast? On a laptop or desktop, you’ll see load times anywhere from 50% to 100% faster. It’s even more noticeable on mobile devices, and you could be seeing pages load up to eight times faster than on your smartphone’s default browser (i.e. Safari or Chrome).
Can Brave run Chrome's extensions?
Some have been prepped for use in Brave,
They include add-ons for several third-party password managers - 1Password, Bitwarden, Dashlane, and LastPass - as well as others that display PDFs within the browser and save content to Pocket for later reading.
Brave's big advantage – blocking ads and trackers?
Unlike other browsers that block ads - whether natively like Epic or when equipped with an ad-blocking add-on - Brave envisions a replacement ad ecosystem for the ads and trackers it wipes off websites.
