Browse faster.

Brave loads major news sites 2 to 8 times faster than Chrome and Safari on mobile. And Brave is 2 times faster than Chrome on desktop.

Brave vs. Chrome on Android Tablet below (more data): 

  • Brave = 16 seconds (2.7x faster)
  • Chrome = 45 seconds
  • Brave = 12 seconds (7.2x faster)
  • Chrome = 84 seconds
  • Brave = 5.8 seconds (4.5x faster)
  • Chrome = 26 seconds
  • Brave = 16 seconds (2x times faster)
  • Chrome = 34 seconds
  • Brave = 7 seconds (3.8 x faster)
  • Chrome = 27 seconds
  • Brave = 11.3 seconds (8.7x faster)
  • Chrome = 98.7 seconds

Load time is measured by calculating the duration from the start time for the first network request, to the response time for the final request made for each domain. Tests can be reproduced using the Charles Proxy web debugging proxy application.

Save money, as much as $23 a month.

(Data collected by NYT.com)

Brave saves you cash. The average mobile browser user pays as much as $23 month in data charges to download ads and trackers -- that’s $276 a year. Brave blocks ads and trackers, so you don’t pay for them. 

Even if you have an unlimited mobile data plan or browse exclusively on desktop, you end up paying because your information and time have value (see how Brave guards both below).

 

Ready to download...?

Block ads and trackers.

Brave blocks ads and trackers by default so you browse faster and safer. You can add ad blocking extensions to your existing browser, but it’s complicated and they often conflict with one another because browser companies don't test them. Worse, the leading ad blockers still allow some ads and all trackers

In case you needed that download link...

Save hours each year.

Brave’s speed saves the average user hours of time each year. Brave even tracks the time you save. Users typically save about 5 seconds of load time per page on a typical cell connection by not downloading ads and trackers. Desktop users see similar savings.

Avoid infection. 

Brave blocks ads and trackers, reducing your chances of being infected by malware, ransomware and spyware. In 2016, infections increased by 132%.

Brave even has HTTPS upgrades, which means more of your connections are encrypted, protecting your identity, browsing, payments and more.

 

Infections are painful but downloading is pain free...

Protect your privacy. 

Popular sites host as many as 70 trackers. Brave blocks the software that follows you around.

The “private” or “incognito” browsing mode that others offer is not truly private. Those tabs mostly stop other people that use your device from seeing where you’ve been. Brave’s private tab stops trackers and will soon feature "Tor in the tab," providing even deeper privacy.

Three ways to use Brave:

Privacy by default

Ads and trackers are blocked and your privacy is protected by default.

Contribute

Decide if you want to donate to sites. There are two ways:

Set up automatic micro-donations. Brave will automatically divide a monthly donation among the top sites you visit.

And/or, you can decide which sites get what percentage of your donation. It’s called pinning.

BAT: Coming Soon

Opt into the Basic Attention Token platform, a blockchain-based digital advertising system giving publishers a better deal and users a share of the revenue. Learn more here.

The Brave Commitment.

How can you trust Brave to maintain your privacy and make revenue?

Privacy

Brave never sees the sites you browse. If you use a search engine such as Google, then anything you type in the search bar will be recorded by Google — but not by Brave servers. 

Money

Brave makes money by taking 5% of any donations and -- after it is fully implemented -- a small cut of advertising that is placed. Brave even shares some revenue with you -- at least as much as we receive.

Trust

It's difficult to do something sneaky when you are an open source company. Anyone can audit what the Brave software code is doing.

Visit downloads for additional versions of Brave including Win 32, Debian, Fedora, openSUSE and Ubuntu.

The new Brave browser blocks the ads and trackers that slow you down, chew up your bandwidth, and invade your privacy. Brave even lets you contribute to your favorite publishers automatically.
