Fast and secure internet browser for personal computers and mobile devices

Brave is a fast and secure Internet browser with a built-in adblocker which boasts speeds superior to those associated with Chrome and Safari. Boasting excellent privacy features available in versions for personal computers and mobile devices, this bundle represents an excellent option for those who are looking for personalized controls and money-saving benefits.

Much more than a fast web browser

The primary advantage associated with Brave is its impressive page load times. In fact, these speeds are up to eight times faster on mobile devices and twice as fast on PC-based browsers. This out-of-the box application is therefore one of the fastest browsers currently on the market. However, this is only the beginning.

Brave also doubles as an effective firewall which will help to protect the end user against modern online threats such as malware and tracking algorithms. In the same respect, no user-based information is ever stored within their servers. Third parties will never have access to your data. The included utilities & tools will automatically upgrade an existing connection to the HTTPS protocol to ensure higher levels of safety. Any plugins deemed to be threats will be deactivated. A beta version of this software enables users to sync preferred settings across multiple devices. A few of the currently supported extensions include WebTorrent, PDF JS and Bitwarden.

Embracing a user-friendly architecture

The developers at Brave Software Inc. have imbued this software with a host of user-friendly options so that no prior experience is required. For instance, a built-in ad blocker can be toggled on and off by clicking on the lion's head icon found on the right-hand corner of the browser. Please note that advertisements will normally be blocked by default. It is also possible to choose which sites to refuse and those to permit. Other user-friendly possibilities are private tabs, including extra private Tor tabs, and the ability to select a default search engine and automatic cookie controls.

It also seems that this application has taken hints from other popular web browsers, such as Avast Secure Browser, as the UI is extremely similar. The interface is the result of a collaborative project known as Muon and users can now enjoy horizontal tabs across the top of the viewing window. This is similar to the layout associated with Google Chrome. Another useful feature is a "shield icon" which displays important metrics such the number of advertisements and scripts associated with specific websites that have been blocked.

One of the up-and-coming web browsers for 2018

Brave certainly appears to be a close rival of major web browsers such as Chrome and Safari. Thanks to its incredible page load speeds, users should be pleasantly surprised with what is in store. As this is an open-source project, members can also contribute funds to their favorite websites through the use of a blockchain-based token platform called Brave Rewards.

Brave is a faster web browser with built-in AdBlocker that prevents tracking and provides safer, better browsing experience.

Browse Faster
Brave blocks trackers and intrusive ads that can slow you down on the web.

Browse Safer
Brave 64-bit keeps you and your information safer, shielding you from 3rd party tracking and malvertisement.

Browse Better
With Brave, you can choose whether to see ads that respect your privacy or pay sites directly. Brave blocks harmful advertising and Malvertising, which can be automatically installed on your laptop without your knowledge.

Brave redirects sites to HTTPS
HTTPS is integrated Everywhere into every Brave browser to make sure your data bits are always transported across the safest pipe.

Brave blocks Tracking Pixels and Cookies
Brave makes sure you aren't being tracked while you shop online and browse your favorite sites.

The new Brave browser 64-bit automatically blocks ads and trackers, making it faster and safer than your current browser. It's amazing how fast a page loads when you strip away everything but the real content. Up to a whopping 60% of page load time is caused by the underlying ad technology that loads into various places each time you hit a page on your favorite news site. And 20% of this is time spent on loading things that are trying to learn more about you. Brave's blockchain-based token solution also allows you to reward favorite publishers for their content.


  • Amazingly fast loading times.
  • Enhanced security protocols and automatic ad-blocking features.
  • Users will no longer be subject to excess charges as the result of unwanted data downloads.
  • Users can reward favorite publishers with blockchain-based tokens.


  • The navigation bar feels somewhat outdated when compared to the remainder of the layout.
