About Brave
We have a mission to save the web by increasing browsing speed and safety for users, while growing ad revenue share for content creators.

The web has become a different place. With the ad-tech ecosystem out of control, users have revolted and blocking ads has become the new weapon of choice for improving their browsing speed, safety and privacy. Unfortunately, blocking alone results in a race to the bottom where nobody wins. Without the ability for content creators to earn money for their efforts, users could be left with fewer sites to browse, relegated to hand-picked content from controlled sources.

Brave aims to transform the online ad ecosystem with micropayments and a new revenue-sharing solution to give users and publishers a better deal, where fast, safe browsing is the path to a brighter future for the open web.

New favorite browser!

About a month ago I deleted all my other search browsers and have been using this one since then. There are quite a few different settings that you can mess with to make it more personal for you. That being said you can leave it just how it is and it works perfectly! One cool feature about this app is it can show you the amount of seconds it has saved you while searching as well as how many ads it has blocked. I have definitely noticed the lack of ads since using this and I mean who actually likes ads? Not me. If I were to try and find one bad thing about this app is that while you are trying it doesn’t auto correct your words while you are typing like safari does but that is a very minor thing. Over all I would definitely recommend using this browser over most others.

You guys are the best!

The Brave Team messed up the browser recently, but it was fixed super quick. The recent update that changed the way the interface looks is super cool, but one thing that got messed up is that they replaced the new tab button with a search button. What’s the problem here? Well, there was no way to open a new tab without viewing the tab list, which I used to do all the time. The new search button does exactly the same thing that tapping the search bar already does, so this change made no sense at all. I complained in a review and a day or so later an update comes out and reversed this change completely! Thanks Brave Team for being great as always!

OLD REVIEW
_____________

Brave team, I love the new update. It’s much nicer looking than before. But please, PLEASE change the search button back into a new tab button! There is absolutely no reason to have a search button since you can just tap on the address bar at any time to do the same thing, but to make new tabs I have to switch to the tab view and tap it there. It takes twice as long and the button they replaced the new tab button with is completely useless and breaks my workflow in the browser. PLEASE change it back or give us the option to change it back!

Crashing Issue

I love Brave, I use it on desktop and it’s fantastic to have it both on my iPad and on mobile. I appreciate that devs give a crap when it comes to privacy and that there’s an entire browser dedicated to protecting our information. However, it’s pretty buggy, and since the last update, there’s an issue with consistent crashes. It doesn’t crash on my iPhone, but it does on my iPad (which is a fairly new iPad Pro)—I haven’t been able to use it for the past hour without it crashing. The other bugs are things such as favorites not saving, copying a page doesn’t always save the link to the device clipboard, “find in page” search vanishes right after attempting to use it so you have to try 2-3 times before it works, tabs overwrite each other even though I’m opening new tabs, and old tabs vanish without explanation. Hope these things clear up so I can raise my rating!

We recently released an update for the app. The newest version should be v1.7. Can you download the app and see if your crashing issue is resolved?
