I Tried Brave Browser For An Hour

I tend to try a lot of different apps and services. One of my first checks in the morning is Product Hunt to see if there is anything new worth checking out.

Recently, my Chrome install felt a bit bloated, so I switched to Firefox for most of my day-to-day browsing. But then I heard the Brave CEO on an episode of This Week In Startups. I had heard about the BAT Token and loved the idea, so I decided to give Brave a try.

Brave’s main selling point is the built-in ad tracking and privacy. After using the browser for a little while, the results spoke for themselves. So far, I have blocked 4,300 trackers. This time-saving feature feels like a game, and I just want to see that number grow.
