Brave browser will get new version without ads and BAT token

The development team will release a fork of the Brave web browser without monetizing its work components, including affiliate links, advertising modules and the BAT token.

A team of independent developers decided to release their own version of the decentralized Brave browser without affiliate links, adware, and the Basic Attention (BAT) token. This initiative became known shortly after the information appeared about redirecting Brave users to built-in affiliate links to cryptocurrency exchanges when they started to enter the site name in the address bar.

The developers plan to create a browser called Braver Browser, which was announced last weekend on Twitter. By June 8, the team demonstrated the first test build of a new browser with remote affiliate links.

“The first test build of Braver Browser was completed a few hours after the fork, it eliminated the option of referral links from Brave. The full version will remove all adware: awards, Brave Together, branded backgrounds, sponsorship components, the BAT token and all future advertising integrations, ”wrote the Braver team.

Brendan Eich, co-founder and CEO of the original Brave team, warned independent developers that they had chosen a difficult path. Eich tweeted:

“Good luck. They will have to rename and run many services and updates on their own. No free use of our servers. ”
