Brave at Mobile World Congress #MWC19
On Wednesday, we shared new research that shows that Brave on Android consumes 40% less battery than other leading browsers. These significant savings mean that Brave users can expect up to two and a half extra hours of browsing per battery charge. More details are available on our site and in this Cnet article. Greenspector, which provides tools for application efficiency and measures energy and resource consumption for mobile apps, shared their recent research at MWC that ranks Brave as the least energy-hungry browser for smartphones. We also previewed Brave Rewards on Brave for Android in the booth that day, so stay tuned for more details.
We hosted a networking event on Wednesday evening in the booth alongside our partners. Uphold, Qwant, TAP Network, and Tresorit were present on our stand all week and held demos of their integration with Brave. Guests were treated to cocktails prepared by a mixologist, appetizers, and the famous Brave beanie!

Sponsored Images now available on all Brave platforms, rewarding users who opt into Brave Rewards with 70 percent of the ad revenue
Brave users will notice that their new tab page features a Sponsored Image, which is shown in every fourth new tab and alternates with Brave’s regular background images for new tabs.
Brave reached a major milestone with the release of the 1.0 version. As ever, web browsing performance is a key priority for Brave, so we set out to evaluate in detail how it stacks up against the competition and devised a methodology for doing so. In our “1.0 reviewer guide”, we summarized the significant savings Brave users can expect. In the spirit of transparency, we here present our methodology and detailed results.
Today we’d like to introduce “Sponsored Images”, the latest addition to Brave’s private advertising platform. These branded images will appear in the form of large, beautiful background images within our new tab page. Sponsored Images will bring additional revenue to support Brave’s mission, and give users a new reason to turn on Brave Rewards so they can get compensated for their attention. These images will begin to appear across our mobile and desktop browsers over the next few months. As always with Brave, Sponsored Images are private.
