We Are In a Blockchain Browser Battle We Can Win, Claims Privacy-Focused Brave Founders

Brave co-founders hosted an Ask Me Anything on Reddit and touched on how they are positioned in the blockchain browser arms race and their motivation to win the battle.

The developers of Brave browser are adamant that they can win the privacy battle based on their firm’s capacity to innovate faster, CryptoSlate reports. The co-founders were responding to questions from Reddit users during an AMA session.

After Brave 1.0 was introduced in the market, several Reddit users raised their concerns in regards to the measures adopted to secure data as well as prevent tracking. It is on this basis that the co-founders engaged the Redditors to answer some of their concerns.

Since its release, Brave has witnessed several wins over the year ranging from introduction of fresh features to recruiting new publishers like Wikipedia. In addition, the co-founders revealed that this week, the browser had closed 9 million monthly users.

The success of the new browser can largely be credited to the high demand for online privacy but the browser has taken some of the aspects of the conventional browsers in the market and upgraded them.

One of the co-founders Brendan Eich, who also developed JavaScript programming language as well as being the Mozilla co-founder, engaged Reddit users on some of the aspects of the Brave browser. Although the aim of the AMA session was to explain the components of Brave 1.0, the Redditors were quick to compare the browsers with the competition.

Eich explained that it is easier and quicker to innovate on Brave compared to Mozilla. He stated that Mozilla is a large organization and changes take time before they can be approved and it makes it harder to come up with risky innovations.

However, Eich was taken to task by one Redditor who asked what would happen once Brave grew to the level of Mozilla. Eich replied that he hopes to be through with the risky projects prior to Brave becoming a big organization.

Eich highlighted that prevention of data tracking as well as collection of user data were crucial to the success of Brave. He explained that the entire data in Brave is encrypted and only the user can access it making it hard for data collection. He added that to enhance transparency, it is easier to audit the company since it operates on open source.
