Brave Unveils High-Performance Android Browser
Brave announced the release of the new Android browser via a blog post on its website published on Monday (March 6, 2020). According to the technical specifications detailed by the announcement, the new Brave for Android smartphones comes with enhanced battery and data saving features.
An excerpt from the blog post reads:
“This new version is a seamless transition for Brave users as the user interface remains the same, but it does provide performance enhancements such as battery savings (5%), as well as CPU and data savings (3%), compared to the previous version (1.5.9). These savings are additional to the savings that Brave already realized when compared with major browser vendors (30%-50% bandwidth and battery reduction compared to Chrome, Firefox, and Opera)”
According to Brave, these novel features tip the scale in favor of its new Android offering when compared against the likes of Vivaldi, DuckDuckGo, and Firefox Preview. The new app is already available for download on Google Play.
