Brave is an internet browser developed by Brave Software, Inc. based on the Chromium browser. Brave blocks known advertisements and trackers by default, as well as known phishing and malware-serving websites. It also offers a system through which its users can give monetary tips to websites or social media account owners.[1] Brave supports Windows, macOS, Linux, Android, and iOS. The current version features five default search engines: Bing, Duck Duck Go, Google, Startpage and Yahoo.[2] They also use Tor in their private browsing mode.[3]

Brave was founded on May 28, 2015, by the conservative CEO Brendan Eich[4], the co-founder of Mozilla[5] and creator of the javascript programming language.[6] It was originally situated in Delaware, where it was known as Hyperware Labs, Inc. They later moved to California where they were renamed as Brave Software, Inc.

On February 14, 2019, the social media network Gab developed a web browser named Dissenter, an open source web browser based on Brave,[7] that allows conversations around individual URLs and creates a public square on them where anyone can leave a comment.[8]
