Screenshot (4)Brendan Eich, one of the people who founded Mozilla in 1998, has launched a new web browser called Brave. The idea behind Brave is to replace the commercials that it can take forever to load some Web pages. In its place selected ads are shown which require less resources.

“The new Brave browser blocks all the greed and ugliness on the Web that slows you down and invades your privacy. Then we put clean ads back, to fund website owners and Brave users alike. Users can spend their funds to go ad-free on their favorite sites.”

In the clip below you can see a comparison of Brave vs Safari on iOS:

A the bottom of this page there is a beta version of Brave available for Windows, OS X, Linux, iOS and Android. Note that it may be a bit complicated to install the browser.
