Brave Web Browser is a fast, free, secure web browser with a built-in ad blocker*, tracking and security protection, and optimized data and battery experience. *What is Brave Ad Replacement? Brave’s goal is to speed up the web, stop bad ads and pay publishers. One of the ways we plan to accomplish this is with ad replacements. We will also invite users to fund their wallets and to use those funds to pay the publishers of their favorite websites.
- Brave is open-source and privacy focused like Firefox. It uses the open Chromium Engine used also by Chrome and so it is really fast. It has built-in Tor and a good Ad-blocker. Brave intrduced a new way to reward content publishers with privacy-minded ads (you can activate/deactivate this feature when you want).
- Currently (March 2017), Brave is not a mature project. It's an open-source privacy-oriented browser and very fast. But you rely on the developers to provide most of the privacy settings, and you can't install extensions. Firefox remains much more customizable via it's about:config menu options.
- Built-in ad-blocker, free and open-source.
