I use it all the time.
It is one of the browsers I use when I get sick of FF or Chrome. It is light and quick. Good for when I don’t have a need for lots of extensions for various sites. Works well on Linux and Android. Recommended.
I’ve been using it for about 2 months...takes care of pop-ups, ads, etc. Highly recommend “BRAVE”.
It’s awesome. Been using it about a year.
NO YOU TUBE COMMERCIALS!
I used it a couple of years ago. I found it fast, flexible and secure, but buggy. It may have improved since then.
I use it on Android and my laptops. Rarely have to use chrome. Blocks ads well, does great on most sites. (I can’t think of the last time it had an issue)
3+ years of using it and am very happy.
Get ghostery and Adblock Plus add-ins too
I have been using it for several months and it is fast and seems secure. There are a few sites it won’t work for, but those sites may want information that may be too much to share, so I take the hint. It tells you (if you want to know) how many ads and trackers it has blocked, and in just a few months, I have avoided 188,120 of them, saving me 2.6 hours of processing time. Scary stats.
I’ve been using it for a couple years (mac user). Quick and secure (works well with VPNs), it’s ad and pop-up blocker makes many websites usable again.
It also has good interaction with users. They put out a recent update that broke my bookmarks. I put out a review out castigating them for it. They contacted me and suggested a work around (didn’t work). The next update came in two weeks and my original bookmarks were restored (and it didn’t delete the new ones).
BRAVE is the brainchild of Brendan Eich, the guy who got hounded out of Mozilla because he gave money to oppose gay marriage in California. Support him!!
Brave is a browser that was created by Brendan Eich, who was a co-founder and chief technical officer of Mozilla (the company behind the Firefox browser). Eich was forced out of Mozilla / Firefox because he made a $1,000 donation in support of California Proposition 8, which called for banning same sex marriage.
Brave is based on the Chromium web browser. Brave blocks ads and website trackers and partners with DuckDuckGo.
Fast, Secure, Reliable.
It also has Tor built in, so if you don’t have a VPN service you have an alternate to remain anonymous.
Overall Excellent Browser.
use adblock plus extension with chrome to eliminate ads ... use Just Read extension to bypass most paywalls and view just the article text without any of the other crap on the web page appearing ...
Best browser I’ve ever used.
I’ve used it since it was in beta and years later it remains my browser of choice. Secure and fast.
I use Brave every day. I’m using it right now. Works great, blocks ads, and when a site asks me to whitelist or turn off my ad blocker I just don’t bother looking at their site.
I’ve been using it for a long while now.
Brave is pretty good. It is engineered to intercept ads and trackers at a low level. It provides privacy and performance because the browser doesn’t force you to wait for ads to load.
They also have a plan/goal to enable users to select publication/sites that they will send money to on your behalf based on how many times you view a site. (The money is provided from the user’s digital wallet, or something like that)
The idea is to make up for lost ad revenue by letting users send money to the sites they like/use. This part is optional and I am not sure how finished it is.
The Brave browser is based on the open source version of Google’s Chrome browser so it should perform similarly to the Chrome browser (or better because of the low level ad blocking)
The GPS that I use in my car says I have to update with chrome only, I refuse to use chrome so I use the brave browser to update only, then uninstall it. In the future when more Firefox type controls and add-ons are available I might switch, but now there is not enough control.
Fast, powerful, but most importantly it’s not related to Ghoulgle.
