Brave browser

Brave is an open source web browser launched in 2016. Based on Chromium (the code behind Google's Chrome browser), Brave puts the focus on privacy ad speed by blocking trackers and ads by default.

Users can opt into privacy-respecting ads to earn a cryptocurrency called Basic Attention Tokens or BAT which they may then choose to share with publishers. As of December 2019, Brave had more than 10 million active monthly users.

Brave is free to download.
