Brave vs Opera Browser: What are the differences?

Introduction

Here is a comparison between Brave and Opera Browser, highlighting their key differences.

  1. Privacy features: Brave offers enhanced privacy features such as built-in ad-blocker, tracker protection, and secure HTTPS connections by default. Opera also includes ad-blocker and free VPN services, but it lacks some of the advanced privacy features provided by Brave.

  2. User interface: Brave has a minimalistic and sleek UI that focuses on simplicity and ease of use. Opera, on the other hand, offers a more feature-rich and customizable UI with options like sidebar extensions and themes.

  3. Speed and performance: Brave is known for its fast performance, as it blocks unnecessary ads and trackers which can slow down websites. Opera also provides a fast browsing experience but may not be as efficient as Brave in terms of page loading times.

  4. Crypto and reward system: Brave introduced a cryptocurrency token called BAT (Basic Attention Token) which allows users to earn rewards by opting into privacy-respecting ads. Opera has a similar feature called Opera Rewards, but it does not utilize cryptocurrency.

  5. Extension compatibility: Brave is built on Chromium, which makes it compatible with a vast range of Chrome extensions. Opera uses its own rendering engine and supports fewer extensions compared to Brave.

  6. Compatibility and availability: Both Brave and Opera are available on multiple platforms such as Windows, Mac, Android, and iOS. However, Brave has better cross-platform compatibility as it is based on Chromium and can easily sync data between devices.

In Summary, Brave offers advanced privacy features, a sleek user interface, better speed and performance, a unique reward system with cryptocurrency, extensive compatibility with Chrome extensions, and cross-platform availability. Opera, on the other hand, provides a more customizable UI, includes free VPN services, and has its own reward system.
