Like Firefox, Brave fights malware and prevents tracking, keeping your information safe and secure as their servers neither see nor store your browsing data that it stays private, on your devices, until you delete it.
Which means your data will never be sold to third parties for advertisers that will compromise your privacy.
You can even Choose your settings on a per-site or browser-wide basis. See how many ads and trackers are being blocked so you can’t be identified or tracked from site to site without your knowledge by looking at your dashboard thanks to the built-in Shield.
You can even use it with Tor Built-in to Enabled Anonymity under incognito mode
At the time of making this post I don’t often use Brave as my default browser on my desktop but it sure is good to have when comparing how web sites are viewed from One browser after the next. (which is useful if your developing web pages)
In other words Here’s a list of recommended extensions to add-on Brave
Extensions For Privacy
uBlock Origin can automatically block different ads while you browse. Aside from most ads being annoying, the fact is that they also track your movements on the web.
Similar-ish to an ad-blocker, but more robust. Made by the EFF this add-on checks to see if third party servers are tracking you through cookies or canvas fingerprinting, and gives you the option to block them so you can decide what you want to allow and what to block.
It allows users to see advertising, analytics and social media tracking cookies. The extension comes with a host of features, including the ability to create whitelists and blacklists of permitted trackers, listing the trackers on a particular site and an indicator of how much time and bandwidth is saved by blocking trackers and other elements.
Produced as part of a collaboration between the Tor Project and the Electronic Frontier Foundation. It automatically checks whether every site you visit has an SSL encryption certificate that requests HTTPS so passive trackers can’t see the actual content of what you’re looking at.
Extensions For Functionality
This is more of an optional preference of mine to give you an idea of what I like to have on my browser to make it better to surf the web. [>.0]
We all know about the threats like viruses, spyware, adware, malicious spam, phishing etc. Web Of Trust warns you about risky websites that try to scam you before they enter in them using a safety rating and combines evidence collected from multiple sources.

Since this post is incomplete, there will be later Updates as I will add some tips and tricks like making your own Portable version of this browser for PortableApps or add extra functionality once I do some research and perform my own hacks to share with. [>~0]/
