Brave Browser

Brave Browser is one of the most prominent alternative browser providers, co-founded by Brendan Eich, one of the founders of the Mozilla Firefox browser. Brave Browser, like Chrome and Firefox, allows users to surf the internet, access websites, and use online apps. The approach to adverts is what distinguishes Brave Browser from other browsers.

Unlike typical browsers, which enable publishers to place advertising and profit from clicks, Brave takes a different approach. The Browser's code is designed to automatically remove all advertising from a page and replace them with those chosen by Brave Browser. For watching adverts supplied by Brave Browser, browser users are paid with Basic Attention Tokens (BAT). Brave's revolutionary approach to online advertising and rewards is complemented with dramatically quicker search speeds. According to the Browser's own documentation, it is many times quicker than the market leader Chrome. This is hardly unexpected, given that advertising programs often slow down browser operations.

Another novel feature of the Brave Browser is the total absence of ad tracking software. Many websites have ad tracking scripts in their code, which watch user activities and collect behavioral data. Ad tracking software has been identified as one of the most serious threats to personal privacy in recent years. Brave claims to be one of the finest browsers for data privacy and personal information security by deleting ad tracking scripts.

Brave Browser is built on Chromium, Google's open-source technology that also serves as the basis for the Chrome browser. It enables Brave to support Chrome browser extensions.
