Brave Review

Tina de Pierre
Secure and fast Internet browsing made possible with this web browser that prioritizes privacy, security and ad blocking by stopping trackers
A review of Brave by Tina de Pierre

Brace is an Internet browser created to prevent trackers, ads and inappropriate content. It does so by sharing less information with online advertisers and ad networks.

The layout and usage of Brave isn't very different from other web browsers like Chrome or Firefox. If you're used to Google Chrome, then Brave is an easy switch as its layout and settings are very similar.

With the huge increase in different types of ad trackers and sophisticated data collection of large corporations like Google, Facebook and Amazon, it may be necessary to add some privacy protection to your web surfing with browsers like Brave.

Brave does many things differently. For one, Brave will prevent advertisements from being displayed in your viewing area, instead opting to move them to different locations.

Brave Browser is optimized for using online shopping and payment services, all of which can be directly configured in the program settings.

As Brave is based on the Chromium project, the same as Google Chrome, Brave is open-source, meaning anybody can obtain the code and inspect it.

In the end, Brave is a pretty good web browser which puts a little bit more thought into user privacy than other browsers.


Brave is licensed as freeware for the Windows (32-bit and 64-bit) operating system / platform from internet browsers without restrictions. Brave 0.25.2 is available to all software users as a free download (Freeware).
