Hey everyone, it’s Andy, and today I’m back with an in-depth review of one of the top web browsers out there, Brave. So, Brave is one of the leading secure Chrome alternatives, so let’s take a look at the browser and find out if it’s the right one for you. Now, I’ve already talked about Brave in another video where I ranked secure web browsers. And I’ll link to that video in the description if you want to learn more, but you know, spoiler, it ranked better than Google Chrome. So, let’s get into it. First, why do we care about secure browsers at all? Well, a lot of mainstream browsers don’t really hold up to the privacy side of things *cough* Google. Now, secure web browsers, on the other hand, don’t track your activity and they do their best to avoid vulnerabilities that might allow hackers to exploit loopholes. In other words, they’ve been designed to plug the loopholes.
So, what is Brave, exactly? Well, Brave is a web browser that aims to treat each user as an individual instead of a “product.” It was created by Brendan Eich, who was one of the people behind Mozilla’s browser. And Eich created Brave to go above and beyond in terms of security and privacy, while still retaining its speed and ease of use.Now, the browser itself was launched in 2016, and it’s important to know that it’s still a work in progress to some extent. I mean, everything is working properly, and new features are being added with every update. For example, users can now search the web privately with the Brave search engine. That said, it’s definitely worth keeping in mind that users can expect greater functionality in the future.Okay, so Brave was founded on open source software and it’s completely free to use, which is great. And it’s also committed to remain free in the foreseeable future, which is even betterPlus, you can choose to make it ad-free if you’d prefer, which is just what you’d want to see in a secure browser.And another cool feature of the Brave browser package is their “Brave Rewards” program. Basically, it allows users to funnel micro-payments to their favorite “creators,” so it offers a different way to help support online businesses that aren't paid advertising. And following up on the fact that Brave was founded on open source software, the team behind Brave definitely goes out of their way to establish transparency. I mean, they have a policy of inviting bug fixes and suggestions from open source codes, so they have a community of users who help keep the browser as clean and honest as possible.Well, Brave’s interface should be fairly familiar to Chrome and Firefox users. The browser is based on the Chromium infrastructure, and a few of the more elaborate features may be lacking, but that means that it’s faster than a browser that has every single bell and whistle possible.
And the browser itself is available on Windows, macOS, Linux, Android, and iOS. There are some differences between them, so it’s worth having a look at each one to see how the functionality differs. First, let’s talk about the Brave browser for Mac. So the Mac version of Brave is a solid alternative to Safari. It offers a clean interface and it’s fast.And that’s because as a Chromium browser, Brave will inevitably suffer in comparison to Mac’s native browser, and some users will find the differences too much to make the switch. But, I mean, if you want a Safari alternative with stronger ad-blocking and anti-tracking features, it’s worth a look. Now, the smartphone versions of Brave are a little different from their desktop versions. Brave for Android and iOS are both basically the same, and are absolutely worth checking out. But unfortunately, they lack the option to engage in Brave Rewards on the mobile versions.Otherwise thanks for watching, and I’ll see you in the next video!
