Brave Is Built For Speed
Brave is extremely fast. On your computer, Brave loads pages 3x as fast as Google Chrome. On your phone, it’s even faster. These speeds don’t happen by accident. By blocking ads and trackers automatically, Brave saves time by downloading less.

Brave blocks this garbage automatically so that your content can load at maximum speed.
