Brave - one name for power features

I use it successfully for what I need to manage business accounts well. It is more stable than Google Chrome, takes fewer resources than Firefox and Chrome, and pages do not crash. It is the best option for crucial things, not really for surfing around.

PROS

Creators of the Brave browser want to ensure privacy and stability. That's for sure what I would be bold as his strong point. I am using it to manage websites and sensitive things. I never had an issue.

CONS

Sometimes it happens, although rarely, that I cannot access some web pages or they are not displayed well. I don't know where to address that problem, but I am satisfied with all the other good things.

Reason for choosing Brave

I like it the most.

Reasons for switching to Brave

It's easy to use, fast, secure, and ideal for business needs.

Brave is one of the best browsers available, and you earn crypto paid out monthly!

Very good. 8 out of 10. I still use it daily and would recommend it.

PROS

The privacy features are nice and it's very fast and constantly improving. I use brave every day and have for a couple years now, it's only getting better as time goes on. The earn feature (to earn BAT Token) is honestly super cool and innovative, and it pays right to your uphold or gemini accounts that you can instantly cash out which is really cool. Earning anything simply for using a good product is a win to me.

CONS

The customer support is awful, you have to deal with the world's most confusing forum in order to get ahold of anyone as there isn't a direct line of support which is desperately needed. The forum is the absolute most confusing thing I've ever had to navigate so I know anyone with less technical knowledge would never in a million years be able to get support at all. Plus there are no extensions, no Ai and just slightly starting to lag behind the leading browsers in terms of updates.

Reasons for switching to Brave

The ability to earn crypto. I loved the earn feature but rewards have been cut and they're starting to be little to nothing.

One of the safest search engines at the moment

PROS

The two main things that sparked my interest in Brave and made it the only browser I use are the Ads and Cookies blockers. You don't need to install or use another app, you don't have to go through multiple or complicated steps to activate the blockers. It is a simple procedure that 100% works.

CONS

There are no downsides to using Brave, but if there is a thing I would improve, it would be the possibility of having more freedom to customize the browser. For now, there are only a limited number of extensions available.

Brave is a good browser especially if you work online a lot.

Brave is a good browser especially if you work online a lot, as you can use its many features and tools without leaving the browser. For example the built in private news feed allows me to not only follow publications, but also customize it with blogs and newsletters I follow. Also, any Brave Search query can be served directly from Brave’s own index, enabling users to benefit from a fully independent search engine that protects your identity.

PROS

I used to use a hand-full of browsers, for different types of uses, however, Brave seems to work well with most of the things I use it for so no need to switch browsers. Also, though it does not affect performance, I like how Brave simply serves the customer without any polorizing agendas like you find from Big Tech.

CONS

I used to use Vivaldi Browser, and one this Brave does not have in comparison is a Notes app that syncs between the desktop and Android browsers. Otherwise Brave has similar features and more, and they seem to be well desined and better thought out a bit.

Reason for choosing Brave

I seems to work for everything I use it for. Seems fast and smoothe. You get a similar experience both with the Windows and Android, so you don't have to remember the diference of each as it is mostly the same.

Reasons for switching to Brave

I mostly like the business model of Brave, as well as the morals of their CEO.
