Brave releases its privacy-focused search engine in beta
Brave has released its privacy-focused search engine in beta. This search engine has been integrated into Brave browser and has also been released as a search website for users who use other web browsers.
Brave promises privacy and transparency. This browser won’t track your activities or searches. The company has also confirmed that there won’t be any secret methods for bias results. It is ad-supported but users have an option to enjoy an ad-free version after a small payment.
The site-index feature is independent and users its own indexing and raking method. But, the search engine relies on Bing for image searches and other search features. Brave has confirmed that users won’t be tracked for Bing queries.
Brave Search Engine is a bit bet from the company and I don’t expect any fruitful results from it. Google still dominates search market with over 92 percent share globally even if it is accused of tracking users. DuckDuckGo is popular as a privacy-focused brasier but it doesn’t actually appear in search market share chart. Brave already has over 32 million monthly active users who use Brave Browser. Most of these users are expected to switch to Brave search as a default browser search.
