Hello everyone, you can download Brave for Ubuntu and experience a fresh browser that focuses on automatically disabling trackers and ads to improve your privacy and speed.

Today we will highlight some reasons why we think the Brave browser might be your go-to way to get on the internet or at very least, it can make a good backup browser when Chrome or Edge are acting up. It’s no secret that I prefer Chrome or Chromium browsers for my Ubuntu OS but that doesn’t mean I don’t try the other browsers from time to time. My second in command after Chrome is Firefox but Firefox has been disappointing me lately so that is why I finally decided to give Brave a chance. I have been using Brave as a backup browser to test this website or my other projects at least 2-3 times a day, each browsing/testing session lasting me at least a good 20-25 minutes with Brave as my backup browser. I can’t say I can complain about it, it works and it loads really fast, especially if you are a web developer, programmer, app designer etc. Brave reminds me of a less bloated Firefox, that’s the best way to describe it, again, it’s still not better than Chrome but that’s a story for another day. Let us in the comments what you think about Brave if you decide to try it, it is useful? Is it fast? What’s wrong with it? Let us know.
