Brave mission is to fix the web by giving users a safer, faster and better browsing experience – while growing support for content creators through a new attention-based ecosystem of rewards. Much more than a browser, Brave is a new way of thinking about how the web works.

Brave is open source, and built by a team of privacy focused, performance oriented pioneers of the web, founded by the inventor of Javascript and co-founder of Mozilla. Brave always relied on Google’s open-source Chromium project for its core functions processing and displaying websites.

Brave aims to transform the online ad ecosystem with micropayments and a new revenue-sharing solution to give users and publishers a better deal, where fast, safe browsing is the path to a brighter future for the open web.

Main features:
– ADBLOCKING – Brave is designed with a built-in AdBlocker to provide an ad-free and seamless browsing experience.
– FAST & SECURE – No external plugins or settings to manage or configure! Brave simply provides the fastest and most secure browsing experience available for iOS. Brave is designed for both speed and security, so you can enjoy lightning fast browsing without popups, malware and other annoyances.
– BATTERY & DATA OPTIMIZATION – Brave reduces page loading time, improves performance, and guards from ads infected with malware. Brave shows a 2x to 4x speed increase on iOS, so you will see a direct reduction in both battery and data plan consumption.
– PRIVACY PROTECTION – Brave also protects users with leading privacy and security features such as HTTPS Everywhere (encrypted data traffic), script blocking, 3rd party cookie blocking, and private incognito tabs.
