The browsing is superfast on Brave web browser and the web pages load up in amazing speed when the page is hit to be uploaded. The big chunk that is about 60% of the time to load a page is caused by all the underlying ad technologies that get loaded into several places each time a user hit a page while 20% loading time is spent on loading technicalities that are used by the site to learn more about the user. Brave browser strips away everything except the actual content which makes the loading faster. In fact, Brave blocks everything on the internet that can cramp the time and style of users or can cause a compromise on users’ privacy. With Brave, annoying ads are history and unnecessary cookies stay away from the browsing experience.
There is another agenda behind the web advertisements which is known in the World Wide Web as “Malvertising”. This type of ad technology can bring malware on the host system without giving any knowledge or clue to the users. But it is not possible if the user is browsing the World Wide Web with Brave browser. Brave redirects the websites to HTTPS by integrating HTTPS everywhere which ensures that the users are always moving their bits across the safest pipe. With an open-source community, Brave developers fix anything as a team, so every aspect from back to the front end is open.
