Brave vs Internet Explorer: What are the differences?

Key Differences Between Brave and Internet Explorer

Introduction:

Brave and Internet Explorer are two popular web browsers that have several key differences. In this markdown code, we will discuss the major differences between these two browsers.

  1. Privacy and Security: Brave is known for its strong privacy and security features. It blocks third-party cookies by default, removes intrusive ads, and provides protection against tracking. On the other hand, Internet Explorer has faced criticism for its weak security features and susceptibility to malware attacks.

  2. Speed and Performance: Brave outperforms Internet Explorer in terms of speed and performance. It is built on Chromium, which makes it faster and more efficient than Internet Explorer. Moreover, Brave has a built-in ad blocker, which further enhances its speed and performance.

  3. Compatibility: Internet Explorer is known for its lack of compatibility with modern web standards. Many websites and web applications do not function properly on Internet Explorer. On the contrary, Brave has better compatibility with modern web standards, ensuring that users can access websites without any issues.

  4. User Interface: Brave offers a modern and user-friendly interface that is visually appealing. It provides a clutter-free browsing experience with easy-to-use navigation tools. Internet Explorer, on the other hand, has an outdated and less intuitive user interface.

  5. Default Search Engine: Brave has its own search engine called Brave Search, which respects user privacy and does not track user activities. In contrast, Internet Explorer uses Bing as its default search engine, which is known for collecting user data for personalized advertising.

  6. Cross-platform Support: Brave is available on multiple platforms including Windows, macOS, Linux, Android, and iOS. This wide range of support allows users to have a seamless browsing experience across different devices. Internet Explorer, on the other hand, is limited to Windows operating system only.

In summary, Brave offers better privacy and security features, faster speed and performance, improved compatibility with modern web standards, a modern user interface, a privacy-focused default search engine, and cross-platform support. Internet Explorer, on the other hand, lags behind in these aspects, making Brave a more popular choice among users.
