A privacy expert who compared some of the most popular browsers on the market reached an unambiguous conclusion: Brave trumps competition. Trinity College Dublin’s chair of computer systems, Dr. Douglas Leigth, authored a study comparing Chrome, Firefox, Safari, Microsoft Edge and Yandex in terms of how much personal data they share with backend servers. Brave’s default configuration was by far the best of the bunch.

The study reads:

“Used ‘out of the box’ with its default settings Brave is by far the most private of the browsers studied. We did not find any use of identifiers allowing tracking of IP address over time, and no sharing of the details of web pages visited with backend servers.”

From best to worst

Furthermore, the study places the six browsers into three distinct groups ‒ from most private to the least. Brave is the only one in the first group — browsers that don’t share personally identifiable information.

Brave was followed by runners-up Chrome, Firefox, and Safari, which all have “identifiers linked to the browser instance.” These types of identifiers, the study states, persist across browser restarts. Crucially, however, those identifiers are removed after a fresh browser install.

Edge and Yandex came in dead last, as both browsers have persistent hardware identifiers that cannot be revoked, even by reinstalling the browser. The verdict for this third group is even more worrisome:

“Both send identifiers that are linked to the device hardware and so persist across fresh browser installs <>. Edge sends the hardware UUID of the device to Microsoft <>. Similarly, Yandex transmits a hash of the hardware serial number and MAC address to back end servers. As far as we can tell this behaviour cannot be disabled by users.”

Brave is a bold privacy defender

As Cointelegraph reported previously, Brave is putting pressure on the U.K. authorities to finally crack down on tech giants such as Google for egregiously violating the European Union’s General Data Protection Regulation. Privacy advocates will be happy to know that Brave puts its money where its mouth is.

A positive information for the Brave project :)
Currently I'm using Brave and am very satisfied with the ability to block ads & protect personal information from hackers or data collection centers. I only use Chrome & Edge in certain cases, mainly to check out some extra mail.

All of these above browsers are bad choices. Chrome is very well known for collecting its users data for advertising. Edge is an close-sourced browser meanwhile Brave, is a bit better but it still requires KYC to receive BAT tokens. Firefox or any open source browser would be better options.

Agree with you, but many users are depending on the Google ecosystem, one of which is Chrome :)
For Vietnamese users, Chrome is the first choice for the browser, then CocCoc (a browser based on Chromium kernel), as a habit :)
I used to use FireFox, but fell it is a bit slow.
For the time being, fully trust Brave!

Brave does provide a prize event for its users in the form of the Basic Attention Token (BAT) cryptocurrency and this is really money that is taken for free.
Everyone wants to be sure when using an internet browser and then they are given prizes in the form of BAT tokens.
If we compare with Mozilla, Chrome and Opera Mini all of them haven't given the event yet and this is the best chance from Brave Browser .
