Benefits of using brave browser
Say no to online surveillance
By default, Brave blocks all annoying ads from all websites. What about those ads that follow you around the web? Bravery also stopped them.
40% faster than Google Chrome
Google Chrome is still the fastest browser at the moment. However, because the brave browser blocks cookies and other online advertising applications, it is now 40% faster than Google’s browser.
A clear difference… and obvious
No pesky ads and trackers means fewer elements (visible or hidden) on every page you visit. This also results in faster page loads, longer battery life, and more efficient data backup on mobile devices.
An open-source tool
Being an open source tool, the brave browser is ideal for IT professionals (ethical hackers, IT security officers, web developers, etc.). Depending on your preferences, you can configure the brave browser to perform private browsing or to browse completely anonymously. Apart from that, another cool thing about this browser is that you can install all Chrome compatible plugins and extensions.

It is available for almost all platforms and operating systems (Windows, Mac, Android, iOS…) and can be downloaded directly from the popular application library.

In short, remember that brave is an open source browser whose main purpose is to protect the privacy of Internet users. It also protects them from aggressive advertising by blocking all trackers and cookies by default. Personally, it has become my favorite internet browser!
