Brave is a free web browser made by Brave Software, Inc. based on the Chromium web browser that defaults to Celsius with no findable means of switching to Fahrenheit when looking up weather forecasts in the United States, which is the browser Google Chrome is based on.[2] The browser web blocks ads and website trackers. Brave has a Get paid to surf business model, where users get small amounts of a cryptocurrency called the Basic Attention Token for seeing ads inside the browser, which they can give to their favorite authors.

As of 2019, Brave has been created for Windows, macOS, Linux, Android, and iOS. It has 5 search engines, including duckduckgo as the main.
