Brave Reviews

Brave isn't. It's BRAZENLY selling you out

It uses the same perverse "accetable ads" model of evil wladimir palants Eyeo platform:

selling whitelisting to third party advertisers

THIS HURTS YOU

The only acceptable ads? NONE are acceptable. Hence ad BLOCKING.

"brave" is not intellectually honest, or particularly moral.

AVOID

The quiet best alternative to FF (at least before version 58 Quantum) & Chrome (privacy nightmare). Respects privacy, the shields (panel) options it's improve at very good point, with the option at Fingerprint protection to enable/disable WebRTC leak. You had the option to accept brave ads or block ads {not everything}. The plugins are default off, like the Google widevine support wich is off, that's mean more privacy.

3/5

-based on chromium {google code}
-extensions not supported
-adblock it needs more improvement

+for daily use it's really good
+nice UI, but can be improved more

Recently switched from Google Chrome and while Brace does have a few issues I am already LOVING IT!. The user experience so far is for me super great, i have a great experience browsing the net and working with websites i deal with on a day to day basis.

I will highly recommend this browser.

A good browser

A good new brand browser. I already recommended it to my colleagues. For me it was a good replacement for Firefox (but I coupled it with Waterfox)

I like the security and privacy features, and especially that they're developing a new revenue model that will allow people to move away from the surveillance and tracking based advertising one.

Brave is a pleasure to use when browsing the web. Be that for work or personal reasons. I would like to see more extensions but small price to pay for a great browser like this. I am hopeful more extensions will follow soon.

Still in dev but already so much POWERFUL

I like(d) Firefox but since a moment it is buggy and slow to answer, so I wanted to change it. I found Brave during my searches.

It is developped by Brendan Eich (founder of Mozilla Project and JavaScript) and its team.
Brave is based on Chromium engine, Blink. Which is fast and reliable. Personally I have problems with Google so I didn't want Chrome or Chromium, the first is controlled by Google and contains trackers. The second is Open Source yeah but Google has still power on it.

Brave also uses concepts from Mozilla Firefox like the respect of privacy and the open source concept, HTTPS Everywhere (which is needed now), the ability to control what your browser tells about you etc... The plus is in the Built-In Ad Blocker (a great thing)

It also toke some things from Vivaldi or Opera, mainly in the interface. It's clear, pure, you get a wide range for your webpages and signets are still accessible.

The neat thing is also that you can pay webdevs if you block their ads, so they get money and you don't have ads, that's pretty interesting for our actual time where everyone wants to surf without pop-ups from everywhere (and sometimes malwares that come with).
If you choose to see Brave ads so you'll finance the website you're visiting too, because Brave will give funds to them and in future they could pay you to display their ads.

I recommend to everyone to use Brave, because you'll support the project and it will get more functionnalities and extensions. You should visit their website too. Everything is explained in it and how it works. For those who know how to code you can also get a copy of it

NOT IMPRESSED. This is a locked down browser. You cannot add/edit/delete addons; cannot add/edit/delete search engines. Does not list/use the #1 clean (global results) engine IxQuick.EU (not .COM). And there appears to be no way to add it. Misindentifies itself on some sites. More than one report (not all verified) that it is (in one way or another) redistributing user statics and/or data... something Mozilla is now doing as well with the telemtry added/expanded as of v.57.

This is not for people who deplore the You Don't Need To Know sales pitch/spin of Google... and recently Mozilla... or those value their privacy from developers as well as sites. We expected better and it failed to deliver under the hood.

It is a Chromium based browser with a horrible UI.

Chromium itself isn't that bad if it doesn't cause issues where HTML5 videos jitter to the left and right which it does for me so I can't use it.
