Brave challenges Google with its privacy-first search engine

Brave is challenging Google search with its privacy-first browser and now Brave Search.

Brave’s privacy-first browser could be a major challenge to Google. The company is launching its search engine – Brave Search.

Recently, Brave announced plans to launch Brave Search, which will keep user information private and away from others. This new search engine will use Tailcat’s technology.

The Tailcat search engine is built on top of a completely independent index, capable of delivering the quality people expect, but without compromising their privacy,

Tailcat does not collect IP addresses or use personally identifiable information to improve search results.


Since its launch, Brave (the browser) has grown its fame among 25 million active users. Now that the company is planning a search engine launch, its popularity would certainly move upwards.

Brave Search ensures no tracking and will always put users first. The search engine would rely on anonymized contributions from the community to improve and refine the experience and wouldn’t use “secret methods or algorithms to bias results.”

The company also said to provide options for ad-free paid search and ad-supported search.

The only way to counter Big Tech with its bad habit of collecting personal data is to develop a robust, independent, and privacy-preserving search engine that delivers the quality users have come to expect,

According to the source, Brave was in the spotlight when the browser started adding affiliate links to cryptocurrency URLs. The company has addressed, “If you’re interested in trying Brave Search, you can join the waitlist”.
