Browse Faster - Loading Pages 3x to 6x Faster

Watch Brave in action, head to head against Chrome and Firefox. Brave loads pages three times as fast as out of the box with nothing to install, learn, or manage.
Switching Easy - Importing and Tracking Where You Left It's

easy to import your settings from your old browser. You can do this during the Welcome Tour or at a later time through the menus. All old browser cookies will appear in a list. You can import other browser data through the main menu item called "Import Bookmarks and Settings".
Boost your bookmarks with Brave Rewards

Turn on "brave rewards" and go back a little bit to the sites you frequent with the most. Earn frequent Traveler-like (BAT) codes to serve privacy-respecting ads through Brave and help fund the content you love.

Browsing the web with Brave is free: With Brave Rewards enabled, you can support the creators you love just as much as you like.

The browser can automatically distribute your contributions based on the amount of time you spend on the sites. Or, you can choose to direct sites, and even offer a flat monthly fee.

All of this works while keeping your browsing history private. Your money is made available to site owners through an anonymous ledger system, so that your identity cannot be determined based on the sites you visit and support. Over 10,000 publishers and creators have registered to receive Brave Rewards.

Remember: these contributions are optional - browsing the web with Brave Browser is free.
