Re: Brave Browser Is Taking On Google!

HI Heather,

Oh no I think Brave is more than just a smooth down version of Chrome.  I am a real fan girl of Brave, as I think Brave is absolutely wonderful, and I like the security Brave provides, as well as accessibility for a screen reader such as myself.  Although, I do know Brave is Chrome based, I still think for me, Brave is maybe just a little more secure than Chrome.  Don’t get me wrong though, I do think Chrome is a good browser as well.  All this is just my personal opinion, as this is what works for me.

Brave Is Launching a Privacy-Focused Search Engine to Compete With Google

The Brave logo with some art assets related to its search engine.

Brave

secured your web activity, and now it wants to secure your search results. The underdog browser, which grew to over

26 million

users last year, is gearing up to launch

Brave Search,

a "

private

alternative to Google Search" without any trackers or "algorithmic bias." Brave Search will take on the big dogs, including

DuckDuckGo,

the most popular private search engine.

Of course, Brave isn't building its search engine from scratch-the company will instead base Brave Search on

Tailcat,

a privacy-focused search engine from the crew

at Cliqz

a now-bankrupt fork of Mozilla's European division. Brave aquired the Tailcat search engine in March 2021 and

suggests

that it's a suitable foundation for Brave Search thanks to its privacy-focused code.

Unsurprisingly, the Brave blog post announcing Brave Search includes a list of tenets. You can read the full manifesto on

Brave's blog,

or skim this quick summary:

list of 7 items

1. Privacy : Brave Search doesn't track users.

2. User-First : Brave Search focuses on users, not advertisers.

3. Ad-Free  Option : Users can pay for ad-free search results.

4. Anonymized Crawling : Big tech companies spend billions to "crawl" websites and generate search results. Brave Search relies on anonymous community

contributions instead.

5. Anti-Bias : Brave Search doesn't use algorithms to create biased search results or censor websites.

6. It's Fast : Brave Search connects to the browser and offers instant results as you type.

7. Open Engine : Anyone can use Brave Search to develop their own search engine.

It's worth mentioning that Brave Search does use algorithms, but it provides filters (or "

Goggles

") to let you modify how the algorithm ranks content. These filters could provide additional transparency for Brave Search, or help early-adopters refine

their search results on the fly.

Want to try Brave Search? Brave hasn't clarified when its search engine will go live, but you can sign up for the

waitlist

today for early access. You could also try

DuckDuckGo,

another privacy-oriented search engine.
