Brave Revolutionary Crypto Browser

Brave is a free and open source web browser based on the Chromium Blink web browser, announced by Mozilla Project co-founder and JavaScript creator Brendan Eich. The creators claim that Brave blocks website trackers and removes intrusive online advertising, increases the level of privacy on the Internet and reduces the amount of data transmitted about advertising consumers. According to 2017, a stable release is available for iOS and Android; versions for Windows, MacOS and Linux are in beta testing.

The beta version by default has 19 different search engines, including StartPage, Ecosia, Qwant and Yandex Search.

Brave is being developed by Brave Software, founded on May 28, 2015 by Brendan Eich and Brian Bondi. The Brave browser was first announced by Eich on January 20, 2016 with the proclaimed goal of introducing an alternative to widespread systems where users are provided with free content in exchange for displaying ads from which many creators and publishers of content exist on the World Wide Web.

Eich sees the Web as facing a “primary threat” of growing conflict between advertisers seeking to collect and store detailed and often very personal information about users and the web users who resist it in order to increase the effectiveness of their advertising.

Publisher Rewards

Trying to compensate for the effect of blocking and replacing ads, Brave is testing the Brave Payments publisher reward system. This system allows users to set the amount they are willing to donate to support the sites they visit. Brave will use a special algorithm to calculate the percentage of this amount attributable to each specific site, which the publisher will receive in the form of a cryptocurrency transfer, if he created such an opportunity.
