How to navigate freely and safely using Brave

One more is added to the list of web browsers. This time, an open source project, with a face for some already known. Brendan Eich, the former CEO of Mozilla and one of the JavaScript representatives, brings together a group of developers to create Brave Browser, the open source browser that offers a different way of browsing the internet. brave_browser_logo Brave is a free and open source browser based on Chromium, cross-platform, available for Linux, Windows and X OS desktop operating systems, as well as for Android and I OS mobiles. Brave intends to limit the advertisements on the pages and control the information that is sent to the network, as well as the download of possible threats without the user's consent.

Although at first glance, Brave looks like just an adblocker, the truth is much more than that. This lion promises to considerably improve the loading speed of web pages compared to the rest of the browsers. The browser developers ensure that the loading speed of a page is directly linked to the amount of ads and information requested by the page from the user, so if they manage to limit these factors in a correct way, the browsing experience will be much more fluid and safe for the user. With this, Brave maintains a constant balance between its two fundamental qualities, on the one hand, speed up the loading of web pages and on the other, maintain user privacy on the internet.

Avoiding Malversting and Tracking

El malversting It is a term that although it is not new, it has taken flight for a short time here. There are more and more cases of malware inserted in web page ads, which are downloaded and attack your computer in the background, without the user's consent.

Believe it or not, there is a lot of information that is sent while you browse, user data, search profiles, geographical location, among others, which in the end, define your browsing session, and becomes valuable information for advertising companies in the net. The truth is that behind that advertisement you see, there may be a hidden malware working, looking for vulnerabilities on your computer.

As a secure browser, this is one of the things Brave fights against. Brave is integrated with HTTPS Everywhere, so that navigation will always be done by the safest way.

Another feature of Brave is the blocking of the tracking of your browsing session. So methods like Tracking pixels and Tracking cookies they will be blocked by the browser.

The advertising control will be carried out through a network of advertisers that will agree with Brave's terms and conditions to publish their ads, always respecting the privacy of the user. This time, it is the browser that is responsible for sending the user's data to the advertisers network, making sure that they are completely anonymous, as well as placing the advertisements on the web under its guidelines, avoiding possible malware in the browser's ads.

The benefits of advertising are expected to be distributed in varying amounts to all involved. Most of it, for advertisers, and a smaller one, shared between Brave, the pages involved and the browser users.

    Do you know if there will be a 32-bit version for Linux? I tested it on Win7 of 32 and it consumes almost a third more resources than Firefox. Can anyone deny me? Cheers
