🚀 Browse Faster
Brave is a fast web browser! Brave reduces page loading times, improves web browser performance and blocks ads infected with malware.

🙈 Privacy Protection
Be protected with leading privacy and security features such as HTTPS Everywhere (encrypted data traffic), script blocking, cookie blocking, and private incognito tabs. All other browsers fall short of the level of the privacy and security protection that Brave provides.

Does a great job of blocking ads and pop ups. I would have given it 5 stars if it didn't run in the background all the time. I check my kill apps app all the time and it shows up running in the background just as much as FB. Firefox and edge doesn't do that. I wish that the people who run Brave would fix that would fix that. I think it's unnecessary for it to be using up resources when it shouldn't have to.

I've always wished you could add favorites to the homepage, but the "top sites" feature worked well enough. The latest update added an annoying feature were random searches you've done in the past get mixed in with the top sites. I couldn't find an option anywhere to turn this off. Please fix this.

It's significantly better since the last updates! Still wish I would be able to set my favorite 4 (or more) sites so their icons just stay resident on the homepage ready to click when I open Brave. Also, if I could customize it a lot more, for example preset how aggressive to block cookies etc for specific sites, that'll be great. I don't mind spending a few minutes setting the browser up to make it work better But, overall a much better experience then even just weeks ago. Keep it up!
