Brave loads major news sites 2 to 8 times faster than Chrome and Safari on mobile, and nearly 2 times faster than Chrome on desktop.
Save money, as much as $23 a month.
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).
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.
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.
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.
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.
