Version 0.7 is already available on the GitHub , so try the Brave can be anyone, although the assembly is intended for developers and testers.
Brave platform based on Electron , which in turn is based on Chromium and Node.js. Brave The creators claim that the browser runs faster with its competitors in 1.5-4 times. These results were achieved not just by cutting sites with advertising, but by removing the pages of numerous trekking codes, which teems with any website that supports advertising.
“When the page is loaded about 60% of the time is spent downloading advertising mechanisms that are loaded each time in different places when you visit a favorite site – say the authors of Brave. – Another 20% of the time spent on loading mechanisms that are trying to learn about you as much as possible. “
But Brave development team was able to not just get a $ 2.5 million investment in the past year. If the browser simply blocking ads, it would be unlikely anyone interested. Brave offers a new approach to this problem: the browser removes all advertising from the site, does not allow them to keep track of users and spy on them, and at the same Brave positioned as an independent advertising platform, with reverence relating to privacy.
Yes, advertising is Brave. Only private, tested – from partner companies. The developers promise that the head angle will always be the safety and comfort of the user. The user will always be the main and only to him to decide how to manage their information – it is in Brave provides a menu with settings lock and replace advertising. Any attempt of unauthorized surveillance will be stopped on the vine, and the promise that this rule will not be exceptions.
user data, based on the history of surfing will still be saved and aggregated for onward transmission to the advertising partners and site owners. But the information they are fed in such a way that the data can not be tied to a specific person, ie the data will be useful, but faceless. In addition, the user will decide what exactly they want to share and what he is interested in advertising.
Theoretically, this should favorably affect the privacy and eliminate the situation where a banner ad provides the user with a product that he was looking for ten minutes ago, which is why there is an unpleasant feeling of “it seems I was being followed.”
“We need to clean the pool, – explained Ike reporters publication Business Insider. – It is necessary to chlorinate it. Only then can we build a new advertising model that will be better for both sites, and users. “
Brave Survive developers are planning not only through investments but also through a percentage of advertising. In an interview with Business Insider Brendan Ike said that the funds will be distributed as follows: 55% of income will get the site owners, developers Brave 15%, another 15% receive advertising vendors, and – most interesting – 10-15% of the income will be the users themselves.
Brave Developers seriously going to pay users of its browser for viewing ads. Huge sums no promises, but users will be able to transfer gained some websites using micropayments. Brave will block all advertising on the site, which the user pays.
While Brave is in alpha: no tabs, no section with the story, there is virtually no setup. However brazuer already presented for all major operating systems: the Windows, the OS the Mac the X, the Linux , of iOS and All Android .
