Brave Browser for Mac

  -  1.2 MB  -  Open Source
The new Brave Browser for Mac automatically blocks ads and trackers, making it faster and safer than your current web browser. It's amazing how fast a page loads when you strip away everything but the real content. Up to a whopping 60% of page load time is caused by the underlying ad technology that loads into various places each time you hit a page on your favorite news site. And 20% of this is time spent on loading things that are trying to learn more about you. Download, Install or Update Brave Browser for macOS!



Brave 2024, under the hood, is a Chromium-based web browser which means that its performance and web compatibility are very similar to other browsers based on Chromium.

Features and Highlights

Browse Faster
The browser blocks trackers and intrusive ads that can slow you down on the web.

Browse Safer
The program keeps you and your information safer, effectively shielding you from 3rd party tracking and malvertisement.

Browse Better
With the tool, you can choose whether to see ads that respect your privacy or pay sites directly. Either way, you can feel good about helping fund content creators.

Brave blocks harmful advertising
There's a new ad game in town. It's called "Malvertising". The latest display ad technology can install malware on your laptop without your knowledge. But not with Brave watching your back.

Brave redirects sites to HTTPS
"We've integrated HTTPS Everywhere into every Brave browser for Mac to make sure you are always moving your bits across the safest possible pipe."

Brave blocks Tracking Pixels and Tracking Cookies
Do you ever get that feeling that someone is watching you when you see an ad for something you bought a few days ago? It makes sure you aren't being tracked while you shop online and browse your favorite sites.
