Brave is a free and open-source web browser developed by Brave Software Inc. based on the Chromium web browser. The browser blocks ads and website trackers making it faster and safer than your current browser. It’s amazing how fast a page loads when you strip away everything but the real content. Up to a whopping 60% of page load time is caused by the underlying ad technology that loads into various places each time you hit a page on your favorite news site. And 20% of this is time spent on loading things that are trying to learn more about you.
Brave, under the hood, is a Chromium-based web browser which means that its performance and web compatibility is very similar to other browsers based on Chromium.

Our Expert’s tips to browse the internet faster:
Open website directly with its name
In most other browsers, entering plain keywords will open the search results page for those keywords. On the tool, the address bar works differently. It automatically opens the first item of the search results. For example, if you enter youtube in the address bar, the program will directly open the YouTube website. This helps you open any popular websites quickly and predictably. If you instead prefer to view the search results page you can use the “Web Search” keyboard shortcut Command-E for macOS or Ctrl-E for Windows.
Use special keywords in the address bar
The address bar can also handle special keywords such as DuckDuckGo’s bangs. This helps you to search on thousands of sites directly. For example, if you enter !yt pizza, the app will directly open the YouTube search results page for the search term pizza. This works for many categories of websites, such as entertainment, multimedia, news, research, shopping, translation.
Use a keyboard shortcut to access the address bar
If you want to search the Links or enter a new address, you can quickly jump to the address bar by using the “Open Location” keyboard shortcut Command-L for macOS or Ctrl-L for Windows.
