Ratings and Reviews
Fast, Ad Block by Default, Crypto Rewards and Privacy Focus
What’s not to like right? This is hands down the fastest browser I’ve used on my Mac, iOS and Windows devices. Ads are blocked by default and it’s easy to make changes to the shields when they inadvertently block things that you want to see. Brave’s privacy focus is a huge selling point especially for people who follow tech and have noticed just how creepy the predictive algorithms are getting. One of the most interesting things is the Brave Rewards model and their solution to the current online advertising nightmare - the BAT (Basic Attention Token). Not only to they pay you for watching ads but the tech also promises an opportunity to upend the current broken system of Google-based ads and predictive marketing analytics. What they hope to do eventually is to put the power back consumer’s hands by paying us to view adds and allocating BAT to content providers based on the proportion of attention you give the site monthly. Popularity growth of the platform and additional investment and price increases for the BAT token will be required to get to a point where the system can potentially provide enough revenue to compete directly against Google etc. but Rome wasn’t built in a day. Give it a try and read up a little. I think you’ll like it too.
Not using BRAVE? Why?
If anyone is still using google and especially those who still use. Are you too lazy to take time and see just how your life is being tracked and information being sold to any country or business for millions. I bet the very people who are not concerned with your privacy do not leave your home unlocked while your gone? Take charge and be concerned that your life is being sold to people by google, other search engines and social media. These people you do not know I can assure you know as much if not more about you and your family than you know yourself.
If you want request your data and what you receive will not only shock you but what information they give you is about half of file they store on your life. If time is issue just download Brave and protect yourself and your family. If you choose not to you can never complain when you find out. Being robbed of your private life is worse than your home being burglarized.
Wake up use BRAVE at least to protect your family members from you exposing them to the unknown people who know so much about them. You can expose yourself but do not drag others into your selfishness behavior.
Brave is a great free way to protect yourself from being monitored 24/7.
Awesome browser but needs some fine tuning
This browser honestly is so nice. It’s got a lot of features that you seek in a browser, especially ones that Chrome lacks. It has a clean interface for the favorites bookmark, it has a built-in adblocker and reader mode (which isn’t the best but it’s still nice), it has cool animations, etc.
However, it’s still not perfect. Some “issues” include that it’s not really friendly towards one handed use, a feature that I would really appreciate if added. For example, a button at the bottom could be added in place of the 3 dots that activates the search bar. Then, those three dots could be integrated into the Brave logo at the top. Moreover, the tabs page, which has tiles that are somewhat hard to reach, could have a button at the bottom that reaches the top. Also, it would look cleaner if the url is shorter at the top and that, when you scroll down, that shortened url still appears. I completely realize how I’m nit-picking, but these would be nice to have nonetheless.
