Brave browser

Hey everyone, In here I am going to talk regarding to my favourite browser which is brave.

Brave is  gaining an attraction among  desktop and mobile users . It  is a free and open-source web browser developed by Brave Software currently based on the Chromium web browser and uses Blink rendering engine and the V8 JavaScript engine.

Brave is a more-or-less standard browser that lets users navigate to websites, run web apps and display or play online content. Like other browsers, it is free to download and use, remembers site authentication information and can block online ads from appearing on sites.

But What makes brave browser so unique? 

What makes Brave Browser different ?

What sets Brave apart is its aggressive anti-ad attitude. The browser was built to remove online ads from websites and its maker’s business model relies not only on ad blocking, but on replacing the scratched-out ads with advertisements from its own network.

Brave also eliminates all ad trackers, the often-tiny page components advertisers and site publishers deploy to identify users so that they know what other sites those users visit or have visited. 

Trackers are used by ad networks to show products similar to ones purchased, or just considered, leading to the meme of persistently seeing the same ad no matter where one navigates.
