Brave is a free and open-source pay-to-surf[1] web browser based on the Chromium web browser and its Blink engine, announced by the co-founder of the Mozilla project and creator of JavaScript, Brendan Eich. It claims to block website trackers and remove intrusive Internet advertisements, replacing them with ads sold by Eich's company.[2] [3]The browser also claims to improve online privacy by sharing less data with advertising customers, although the browser itself targets web ads through analysis of users' anonymized browsing history. Brave intends to keep 15% of ad revenue for itself, pay content publishers 55%, ad partners 15% and also give 15% to the browser users, who can in turn donate to bloggers and other providers of web content through micropayments.[4]. As of 2018, it is available as a stable release for Windows, macOS, and Linux and also available as a stable release for iOS and Android. The current version features 20 search engines by default, including DuckDuckGo, Google, StartPage, Ecosia, Qwant and Yandex Search. Brave also has a partnership with DuckDuckGo.

History[edit | edit source]

Brave is developed by Brave Software, which was founded on May 28, 2015 by Brendan Eich and Brian Bondy. Brave was first announced by co-founder Eich on January 20, 2016 with the stated goal of providing an alternative to the widely adopted system of providing free content to end users supported by advertising revenue that is employed by many content creators and publishers on the World Wide Web.

Some newspaper publishers claimed in 2016 that Brave's proposed replacement of advertising was illegal.[5]

In June 2018, Brave released a version of the browser for the purpose of testing Brave as a pay-to-surf software. This version of Brave came with around 250 pre-packaged ads, and sends a complete log of the users' browsing activity to Brave. Brave announced that expanded trials will follow.[citation needed]

Brave has an agreement with company DuckDuckGo to sell all the search queries done by a user, in exchange of a revenue-share with DuckDuckGo[6] and partially disables at least one privacy-protection feature called (user-agent protection, June 2018). DuckDuckGo is showing results and ads from Bing which means that servers at Microsoft are indirectly processing all the search queries from Brave users.

Critical reception[edit | edit source]

Version 0.7 of Brave was called “mighty primitive” by Network World.[7] Urbanophile stated that Brave is “very fast” with “quirks”.[8] Ars Technica called Brave a “double dip” and added “Brave just sounds like a cash-grab”.[9]

However, by the end of 2017 TechWorld[10] singled out Brave as one of the best secure browsers available today, and CNET[11] praised their defense of user privacy.
