Brave Search is a free search engine used in the Brave browser, much like Chrome uses Google Search and Firefox uses Yahoo. While the company designed the use for its own browser, you can also use Brave Search on any browser by inserting the search engine’s URL. It’s an independent system, which means you won’t need to worry about any privacy issues you may find with competitors.
You can use the web version on any device, such as Windows, Mac, Android, and iOS. It’s a modified version of the Tailcat search engine that the company acquired. Its top benefit is that third parties can’t track your activity or profile, and it uses its own community-based indexing system.
When it comes to transparency and safety, Brave Search places privacy as one of its top concerns. Many people have complained about competitors that share information with third parties, by tracking your activity with cookies so that they can push target marketing. Fortunately, Brave Search safely secures your internet searches.
While some search engines use algorithms to determine search rankings, Brave Search, on the other hand, offers community curation. In other words, the user intent defines the relevancy of a search outcome. With this feature, the search engine will result in greater diversity and improved restrictions for how articles will appear on searches.
When it comes to indexing pages, posts, and categories, Brave Search will use a system not dependent on other providers. Articles will appear quickly on searches based on queries and topic authority. Of course, it all related back to the community-curation system that controls the overall search results.
No matter which browser you use to run Brave Search, you’ll find seamless integration with its functions while retaining your privacy. You can use it on Chrome without worrying about cookies and being tracked, as it’s the search engine that does so and not the browser. You can safely surf the web without worrying about who’s watching you.
Private, free searching
While Brave Search is still new to the market, you can expect to see many features appear over the next few years. While the app promises transparency and no interference from third parties, you can also select between ad-free or supported searches.
