Brave is a free and open-source web browser developed by Brave Software, Inc. based on the Chromium web browser.
The browser blocks ads and website trackers. The company has proposed adopting a pay-to-surf business model in a future version of the browser.
As of 2019, Brave supports Windows, macOS, Linux, Android, and iOS. The Windows and Mac builds have been criticized for enforcing a mandatory update policy.
The current version features five search engines by default, including their partner, DuckDuckGo.
