How to get started?
Easy! Just click on the lion head and discover Brave Shields, which have per-site settings so you can decide which sites to block.
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.

BAT too the moooooon!!
Love it! Don’t forget to check out the story behind this browser. Learn about crypto currencies!!! The purpose for the creation of this browser is to force internet advertisement brokers to deal directly with content creators in an open, crypto based, market place that removes centralized middle men through the use of smart contracts. Content viewers are to be incentivized to turn off add blocking features by receiving payment in crypto for viewing and sharing content. Check out the “basic attention token” website for more info.
When it's Good...
When this browser is good, it's great. I use it exclusively.
Unfortunately, as it ages it increasingly misbehaves, with freezes, quirks and crashes; the only think one can do is delete it and download it again. This fixes the issues - for several months.
Is it worth the heartache and trouble? I'd say so- like that love-of-loves that got away and you never quite got over. Still, I wonder why the issues have still not been fixed.
Good browser mostly
I use Brave when I can, but on some sites it doesn’t load. Even if I turn off all filters I still can’t get some to load! I understand that some sites need the ad revenue, and I appreciate that it’s my choice to determine which sites to avoid and which to white list, but I don’t understand why a site that loads in Safari, won’t load in Brave?
