Your Entryway to Privacy and Speed

5.0 2 weeks ago New

Comments: I've had nothing but great experience with Brave. When compared to other browsers, its speed and privacy capabilites are outstanding, providing a quicker and cleaner surfing experience. I value the strong privacy safeguards and integrated ad blocker since they provide me comfort when using the internet. Brave is my go-to browser for daily browsing because of its efficiency and commitment to user privacy, even with a few small compatibility difficulties with specific websites and plugins.

Pros:

The speed and privacy aspects of the Brave browser are what I appreciate most about it. Compared to other browsers, it loads websites substantially quicker, and the integrated ad blocker improves surfing by minimizing distractions and clutter. With features like HTTPS Everywhere and third-party cookie blocking, which place a strong emphasis on privacy, I feel certain that my online actions will be protected.

Cons:

I found Brave's sporadic incompatibility with specific websites and addons to be the least appealing feature. Even though it's getting better, there are still some websites that might not render correctly and unsupported addons that I use. It takes some getting used to these peculiarities, but ultimately the advantages outweigh the slight annoyances.

Brave, The Best Privacy Browser with a Reliable Ad Blocker and Tor Builtin

5.0 10 months ago

Comments: Brave has made the overall internet browsing experience much safer and cleaner by eliminating annoying Ads, trackers, and malicious content.

Pros:

Brave Shields is the crown jewel of Brave Browser. The ability to browse the web without having to worry about trackers, ads, and cookies enhances the overall experience greatly.Being based on Chromium, Brave supports adding Chrome Extensions which means endless customization and modularity of features.

Cons:

In my perspective, Brave has nothing severe to dislike. Although I prefer the visual aesthetics of Chrome and Vivaldi over Brave, they aren't a major concern.

A good alternative for Chrome but not mature enough

3.0 3 years ago

Comments: An average experience, for now I have decided to switch back to chrome but I hope that in the future Brave will mature nicely and I will definitely test it again

Pros:

I love the embedded thor browser and the torrent client, that's a big BRAVO

Cons:

It happened often that a web page that would flawlessy work with chrome or other browsers did not load or it was broken. Also imho the rewards system is non-sense and pretty annoying.

Affordable Private Browsing
