Brave-Browser-Popularity-Skyrockets-Surpassing-Firefox-and-Opera

The open source privacy-focused browser is rising in popularity and beating other popular browser options. In the past twelve months, all across the word, Brave browser has seen a good surge in its usage as evident from the fact that it has already surpassed 1 million downloads and continue to add verified publishers to its platform.

According to the data provided by Google Trends, since October last year, Brave browser is showing a lot of strength as it continues to trend upwards. While initially, it has been well below Opera and Firefox, in March 2019, Brave Browser surpassed these two browsers in popularity for the first time.

In March, it started seeing a good incline and after April it surged yet again, leaving Firefox behind while slowly taking over Opera as well.

While Opera is the creation from 1995, Firefox was released in 2002 and Brave Browser is just a few years old. Founded in May 2015 by CEO Brendan Eich and CTO Brian Bondy, this browser aims for private, secure and fast browsing experience while on the mission to fix the web.

Faster, Secure, & Privacy-Focused

Privacy is the focal point of Brave browser that is missing from the popular age-old browsers playing an integral role in Brave’s success.

Recently, we also saw Firefox’s certificate issue that is not allowing the users to install any of the listed add-ons. The issue has been also disabling existing add-ons and preventing users from enabling any installed add-ons on the browser. Though it didn’t affect all the users, the extent of the issue seems to be quite wide as various complaints on Reddit, Twitter and other social media platforms emerged.

Apart from privacy, Brave browser is also about 8 times faster than Chrome and Safari and most importantly it blocks unwanted content while keeping count, ensuring no more data charges to download unwanted content.

Brave browser is a complete package and what makes it even more attractive is that it support sites with micropayments, allowing you to reward your favorite content creators with a blockchain-based token called Basic Attention Token (BAT).

Just recently, Brave launched the first advertising platform built on privacy and sometime before that Brave rewards have been made available in the latest Android version as well.

At the time of writing, BAT has been trading at $0.3425 with 24-hours loss of 5.6 percent, as per the data provided by Coinmarketcap. In 2019, this is one of the most profitable coins as it is up by more than 163 percent to date.
