  • Brave Browser was developed by Brave Software Inc. based on the Chromium web browser. It is a free and open source web browser that can block annoying ads and intrusive website trackers that are known to slow down loading of web pages. The software replaces these annoying ads with Brave Software Inc ads.

    It is designed to improve your privacy online by sharing less data with ad customers. This is done through an anonymous analysis of your browsing history to target web ads. The developers of this software want to show only tailored ads that will help fund website owners and other Brave users.

    Why you should use Brave Browser

    Brave Browser is essentially designed to block annoying ads, and website trackers that spend your bandwidth trying to access your private data, as well as slowing down your browsing speed. There are a number of tools that help to protect your privacy built-into this software.

    Brave Browser ensures your connection to websites are always secure by integrating the ‘HTTPS Everywhere’ option. The browser also blocks tracking cookies, and pixels. If you value your privacy while surfing the internet, then this is the browser for you.

    Features of Brave Browser

    • Blocks ads and trackers that slow down your browsing speed;
    • Protects your privacy with the HTTPS Everywhere feature;
    • Clean user interface;
    • Open source browser based on Chromium/Blink engine;
    • Substitutes pop-up ads with smaller and fewer anonymous ads that help fund website owners.

    Overall

    Brave Browser is a secure and easy-to-use web browser that speeds up loading of pages by blocKing ads and website trackers. It has one of the best security tools on the market, and you can help developers out by advertising their products anonymously.
