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.

What's New in Version 1.5.2
General Bug fixes
Just gets worse & worse
Update: Just tried version 1.5.2. Buggy mess. New tabs webpages top half are not rendering. Took less than 5 minutes to spot this huge bug. Brave devs are not even trying any more. Ugh.
Every new version of Brave gets worse and worse. I used to praise the Brave browser, but not anymore. Safari is twice as fast at rendering sites. Also, Brave has made some dumb UI decisions. You used to be able to pull down on the webpage a little & get the top tab bar to show. Not anymore, you have to scroll all the way to the top. Also, if you’re halfway down the page and open new link into a new tab, it doesn’t auto show the new tab at the top, you have to scroll to top to access it. Noticed that sometimes a bug keeps you from closing tabs, etc. It’s easily one of the slowest rendering browsers I’ve ever use. It had potential early on, not so anymore.
First I would like to thank you for making this as I truly believe it is a great application and concept. The app is very intuitive when it comes to functionality and simple to use. The features it offers are the ones expected and I don't feel as I am compromising anything by switching from chrome. I do see an improvement in speed compared to crome although minimal enough to be possible perception. I would like to see theme support and a more modern/sleek looking interface or more customizable in future updates. As the title states this is a great start.
I really like this browser because the adblock is better than Firefox. I would love to keep using this browser but I like to watch action movies online different websites and this browser doesn't allow any online movies to play. Even when I disable some or all of the adblock features and I use desktop tab I still can't watch the movies. Opening the video in full screen doesn't work either. I've deleted and reinstalled this app 3x's in hopes I could figure out how to make the online movies play. But its still impossible. Disappointed I'm going back to Firefox!
