In contrast to Chrome, by default, Brave blocks advertisements and trackers. It enables Brave websites to load significantly quicker than Chrome. Below is a Brave, Chrome, and Firefox velocity test. Brave monitors and shows the time it saves you when you open the browser.
Brave blocks advertisements by default (as opposed to Chrome, which needs an expansion like AdBlock for a third party). By default, bold blocks 3rd party tracking.
On Chrome, 3rd party cookies are used by mega-advertisers such as Google and Facebook to monitor your browsing on almost every website.
Brave limits the quantity of information that Facebook, Google, and other ad networks can obtain about your browsing habits by blocking third-party cookies.
Brave stores locally on your desktop all your browsing information, which implies you can delete it at any moment.
Brave promotes browsing Tor, making it the first all-function browser to do that.
If necessary, Brave will automatically encrypt your website link (on Chrome, this only happens with an expansion like HTTPS Everywhere). Brave now supports all Chrome extensions, including famous LastPass and 1Password password managers.
Drawbacks of Brave
Brave blocks part of a website you wanted to load every once in a while, so when this occurs, clicking on the lion icon and switching the shield down is more comfortable. It is rarely needed since the recent Brave update (maybe once a week).
Brave's speed alone is enough to make the switch useful, and the added privacy and security benefits are cherry on the cake.
Brave has skyrocketed to popularity, going from 1 million to 4.6 million users in 2018.
Brave is practically precisely like Chrome, but faster and cheaper.
