A web browser with your privacy in mind.
Brave is a web browser with built-in ad blocking, tracker blocking, HTTPS Everywhere, phishing/malware protection, and optional fingerprinting protection- all without the hassle of needing to worry about any of it. Instead of juggling the maintenance of multiple browsers and security plugins, Brave's all-in-one approach makes it easy to stay ad-free without worrying about the details. This makes Brave an especially great solution for more vulnerable users (older/younger populations, public terminals, etc). Integrating DuckDuckGo's anonymous search into their Private Tabs was a smart move. If they add a VPN like Opera, it'll truly be an end-to-end privacy solution; ideal for journalists, activists, or, you know- anyone.
If you're tired of your ad-filled browser and are ready to make the switch, keep Brave on your shortlist.

Brave has everything you'd expect in a browser plus a slew of built-in privacy protection.
Brave does have a few rough edges but nothing show-stopping and it's getting better by the day.
It's lacking some polish, but Brave feels clean and clear overall. I appreciate the simplicity.
