Is Brave A Good Service? (My Honest Review)

I have been using Brave for several weeks and it has delivered on its promises as far as fast web searches and ad blocking. I really like the counter that shows how many ads have been blocked, and how much time I have saved, by searching through their browser. On the other hand. the ability to earn BAT for viewing ads and participating in their user attention program has not yet been activated but is due to go live in the near future. I will update this review once I have been able to test that program out for a while.

Conclusion:

Over 600 million people use some kind of ad blocker on their devices. It is clear that people do not want to be bombarded with unwanted ads. Having a browser that automatically eliminates ads just makes sense. In addition, when your device is not weighed down by ads your search can be completed much quicker. Brave browser represents an excellent real world use case of how blockchain and cryptocurrency can improve our economy.
