Brave Browser Review 2019 - Why I Chose Brave As My Chrome Browser Replacement

Brave Browser- The Best Web Browser

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


It’s a browser that’s gotten a lot of attention lately.
So what's Brave all about? Here's what the company said about its plans for the web:

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.

If Brave is just another Chrome-like browser?

No! Brave is like the "Anti-CHROME" browser... a browser that addresses the privacy concerns of today’s users, who are fed up with all the ad tracking most browsers allow. The Brave browser blocks the Tracking Pixels and Tracking Cookies that advertisers use to track your clicks around the web.

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).

How Is Brave Browser Funded?

Brave Software’s financial life is shredded in privacy. However, the company managed to raise $35 million in just seconds by selling the BAT cryptocurrency to investors.

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.


Benefits of Brave Browser

Default Ad Blocker

Brave blocks ads automatically. Users are no longer required to search the web for a perfect ad blocker. The auto-blocking protects your device from malware and extensive tracking by advertisers. Brave is also working on a plan to replace ads that appear harmful.


Improved Privacy During Browsing

Blocking of malicious ads automatically allows safe browsing. Brave does not have access to identifiable user data. The anonymity aggregated ad campaign related data is used for accounting.

Browse the web 2x faster.



Because Brave strips out many of the tracking features of ads, it greatly speeds up page loading times. Brave says this allows its browser to load pages almost twice as fast as other web browsers. Also, because many of the data-heavy ad’s are stripped away, you’ll be hit with smaller data usage 

You Get Paid To Browser – If You Want

The concept of getting paid for browsing has been a dream. However, Brave browser has changed the game. All you have to do is to enable Brave ads. View the ads and get 15% of the revenue. For content creators, you are supported by users who love your content. All payments are in the form of BAT tokens.

Pros

  • Interface. The Brave open-source browser offers a simple, clean, and intuitive interface.
  • Speed. In part, because it keeps trackers reigned in, Brave is a fast browser.
  • Exemplary ad and tracker blocking. Brave's ad-blocking is top of the heap.
  • Privacy and security. Along with its blocking capabilities, Brave's anti-tracking tools are among the best.
  • Extensions. By being built on Chromium lets you use Chrome extension in Brave.
  • No more data charges to download unwanted content.
  • Earn rewards and give back to your favorite publishers.
  • Brave blocks the software that follows you around

Cons

  • Brave Rewards. Brave's opt-in ad display and compensation program is a bit confusing and certainly controversial

What platforms is Brave available on?

Brave is available on Windows 7 or higher, macOS 10.9 or higher, Linux, iOS, and Android. You can download it 
The browser is fast and can save up time and money. Furthermore, users can earn some extra income for browsing ads from the Brave ads service.
However, the Brave team needs to clarify the rewards system that appears to be confusing.BRAVE: Brave and BAT are game changers.
