We have been using this browser on desktop and mobile for the last few months and it’s great. The biggest difference is mobile by far. In fact one of the coolest aspects of this app is you can watch Youtube vids (ad free) with your screen turned off, or in the background. So you can use it instead of Spotify for music, or listen to podcasts without killing your battery.
You can choose to view ads on your favourite Youtuber or websites if you want to support them, and in doing so you get a share of the ad revenue. According to the creators, if you choose this option you should earn about enough for a cup of coffee a month. Personally we value the ad-free side of it more, but it’s nice that the option is there.
If you Download Brave through the link above and regularly use it we get a small commission. So you guys get ad block & it helps keep our advice freely available to everyone!
