What makes me decide on choosing Brave as my browser after years of using chrome as my go-to, is the mere fact that now most of the competing browsers are built on the same structure, Open source chromium, and so is Brave, Opera, Vivaldi, and Microsoft. This means that these browsers can support the same chrome extensions, provides the same great performance and in some cases, even faster than Google Chrome. All the places where Safari or Firefox might have slipped, brave have taken an upper hand there too. I’m a happy user of Brave Browser, and I’ll brief you on why.
Google Chrome has a lot of features that kept us glued to it, just like it’s convenient saving of passwords function. It automatically saves your data and auto-fills per your requirement, whenever you visit the site. This even lets you transfer your passwords on other devices, using the same email or browser, which could be a bit unsafe. What you need is a safe password manager or an even safer option like Fingerprint or data encryption authentication, like brave has to offer.
It’s always a hassle to compare browsers in terms of everything, especially speed and performance. After elongated research, and investing my precious time to relate them with my real-world tasks, I chose Brave, over Chrome, Firefox, Safari and Vivaldi, the top five options on Apple’s mac.
Vivaldi and Chrome were somewhat similar, however, chrome was a little bit faster in its performance, It even hung when I opened a lot of tabs, Firefox needs to work on it bugs, as it really affects the internet’s performance and gets annoying. Until now Chrome was the best browser, till I used Brave. It was tangibly faster than Chrome and even had no ads, throughout my use. Safaris issue was that it refused to include favicon my favorite sites and change the font size, which still bothers me, so choose wisely, that’s my advice to you.
Brave is defiantly privacy and a speed improvement on my behalf, and I was rather prompt and subtle in ditching chrome almost immediately. It’s an over-all win-win situation for me. I even saw a lot of added security checks such as Captchas, that I assumed as Brave’s track blocking behavior, which I didn’t receive while using chrome. If you ask me, I personally liked being more secured and about how the browser dealt with my privacy concerns. This might become a bit annoying at some point, but it comes with no cost. That’s just one downside to this switch.
In my opinion, Google chrome and Brave both stand at a very reputable standing for me, however, Brave still has leverage here as it’s new in the market, still working on upgrading its features, and is relatively faster, which is absolutely amazing. If you ask me whether switching is worth it, my answer would be definitely a yes, but again it depends on what you’re looking at, like a browser.
