I’’m pretty amazed to see it get the attention it’s starting to get. I shrugged when it came out. I didn’t think it had a chance against Chrome with all of Google’s ability to get installs and throw engineers at it. Plus it mostly seemed like a skin on Chrome’s engine.
They went through a few rounds of seed financing and I thought they’d never be able to raise enough money but somehow they did a coin offering and raised $35 million. Now they have an amazingly large and impressive team.
The main thing, though, is it has become a joy to use. They figured out a way to make it incredibly fast. On those sites that are so littered with ads they feel broken in Chrome, Brave seems to clean them right up. I love it
