Brave description

For anyone who does not use brave ill run through a quickly compare it to google chrome. First you have to understand that most browsers with the exception of apple products are based on a chromium build. this is not always true some companies cant afford a better build like fire fox. meaning that most of them support chrome extensions and provide comparable or in braves case faster services.

Privacy comes first

Brave is built to keep your personal info private Blocking ads (includes YouTube) and website trackers. additionally they allow users to spend and send cryptocurrency as tips or compensation depending if their a partnered site. Many like myself noticed the bat rewarded for viewing ads or tips. this is due to the new machine learning model of contextual advertising. This is contrary to the industry standard behavioral targeting witch involves tracking users through third party audiences that collect and resell the data.

Local machine learning

A key component of their private matching with their brave adds platform is machine learning. using a combination of active learning from public data sources and general purpose models. This boils down to the add targeting models are in essence offline in the sense it doesn't use your browser. They also only allow the machine learning models infer interest on non login based websites like email social media ect.

Increase efficiency

Ad and website tracking blockers are essential tools to improve web privacy and aesthetics. traditionally content blocking extensions generally use filter lists. these lists are poorly understood quickly accumulating rules and rarely remove them. resulting in a smaller number of use full rules and accumulation of useless ones. They use an improved understanding of crowd sourced add blocking outlined by sigmetrics 2020 paper. By measuring resource blocking rules they optimize for popular add blocking. This optimization increases the devices performance by as much as 62% while maintaining 99% of the security.

Percival

This is a deep learning ad blocker within the browsers image rendering. this makes it possible to intercept every image . blocking adds based on images the machine learning has flagged as an add. If your a little lost the important take away is you tube as well as many other forms of social media have had their adds removed. This is groundbreaking because this type of add blocker was up until 2020 was thought imposible. This is met with some reluctance because the viewers want the content creator to be compensated. i dont have the time to explain why. however most youtube creator are not paid by adds thoes who are recieve less than 7% most require sponsors. brave solved this with the auto tip function.

You tube and keeps most add revenue brave rewards them fairly!!!

Basic attention token

Their in house erc 20 token that can be earned by choosing to see adds or creating content. Many people like me have wondered why the ads are not showing up as frequent it has to do with measuring the clicked ads with completed offers. in other words the less you actually use advertised services the less likely you will be chosen to view ads. I have not been getting 5 a hour however since switching to breve nightly on pc and actually signing up for services i could afford i get more than the 0-1 a day before.

Be brave

stand up to the unfair practices and data collection of google, youtube and many more take back your privacy and make sure content creators get paid. would specify paid more but youtubers are lucky to be given the respect temp's let alone compensation.
