Privacy Browser Brave Released Out of Beta, Officially Launches 1.0 Version to Its 8.7 Million Users

  • Brave 1.0 has been officially launched.

The free open-source browser beta version already has 8.7 million monthly users and is now available for Windows, macOS, Linus, Android, and iOS. The browser blocks third-party ads, autoplay videos, and trackers automatically to ensure users’ privacy.

For ad-blocks, you usually need to download an extension though several browsers have taken steps towards this. Safari blocks third-party trackers from sites you don’t visit frequently but only for 24 hours. Firefox has also started blocking some by default earlier this year. Google is planning to launch tracking-blocking tools but has no plans to do so for cookies on a large scale while Microsoft Edge is still testing a feature.

Amidst this, the ads and website trackers blocker Brave has officially been made available for different systems having already garnered traction in its beta phase.

The browser’s Brave Ads allows the user to be paid to view the ads that don’t access your data. These ads are targeted to the user and can be adjusted for frequency.

To opt-in Brave Ads, the browser offers Brave Rewards. One can support their favorite creator by giving them the blockchain-based tokens like Brave’s Basic Attention Token (BAT).

Reportedly, the browser loads major news sites 2 times faster than Chrome on desktop and 2 to 8 times faster than Chrome/Safari on mobile.

Its privacy options also offer two different private modes. Private Window is like any other browser's incognito mode meaning none of your data is saved to your device but can be seen by the ISP. Private Window with Tor, on the other hand, hides the information through multi-layered encryption.

Now that it has been moved out of beta, it would be interesting to see if the popularity of Brave soars.
