Chrome has a lot of benefits, especially if you have a Google account, but are these benefits worth your privacy?
For those looking for a more privacy-focused alternative, Brave has announced that its Brave Search engine is now available in beta and will be incorporated in its own browser as one of the options that users can pick from.
The firm offers privacy features such as no user monitoring or profiling, its own search index so it doesn’t have to rely on data from other sources, and transparency about its algorithms to avoid biased search results.
“Unlike older search engines that track and profile users, and newer search engines that are mostly skins on older engines and don’t have their own indexes, Brave Search offers a new way to get relevant results with a community-powered index, while guaranteeing privacy,”Brendan Eich, CEO And Co-Founder Of Brave.
Now, taking on a behemoth like Google, whose foundation was based on its search engine ability, may be a hard assignment, but in an age where consumers are demanding stronger privacy protection, they might be onto something.
