Best Browser for Ad Blocking: Brave

If you’re tired of YouTube and shopping ads, this post is for you.

I wrote about cookie-less marketing a few weeks ago, and I talked about how cookies might not play a role in advertising anymore. While that’s in the pipeline, another solution is needed for the hundreds of ads that we see each day, especially on YouTube. And how when we browse on a site for 10 minutes, we see ads regarding the same products on a different webpage almost instantly. It is pretty annoying.

So, instead of adding chrome extensions for ad blocking, let’s switch up the browser itself. 

Brave is a browser that allows you to surf on the web faster and better, with literally no advertisements. I experimented with it for a while, and believe me, they are true to their words.

Let’s go through the basics. 

Essentially, I browsed Myntra on Brave for up to 20 minutes, and ordered some items. Simultaneously, I browsed a site called Ancestry on Google Chrome, and did some shopping there as well. 

After 5-7 minutes, I went to a different site on both of them, and this is what I found.

Now, isn’t that helpful? There were no popups, or any advertisements covering content. And what’s even more accommodating, there were no ads before YouTube videos! That is the best part. 

Usually if you watch a video that is longer than 10 minutes, there will be at least two ads loading in between the video, not to mention the wait to click on ‘Skip ads’ before the content. But, I watched videos that were up to 20 minutes long, and no advertisements interrupted the flow.

So, if you liked what you read, you can try out this browser. And no, this is not a sponsored post, I genuinely liked their services. You can install the browser here for free.

That’s it for today, folks! Thank you for reading, and leave a comment down below if you found this helpful!

Happy Browsing!

Keep the brave vibes flowing,
