let’s quickly recap my previous experience with Brave Browser. In a prior article, I highlighted the reasons that drew me to Brave over other browsers. The features and offerings provided by Brave Browser made it my preferred choice over Google Chrome.

Brave Browser adds a seamless experience to the users by effectively blocking the ads and trackers on the sites including on the video platforms like YouTube.  I know you might list some known ad-block extensions that you have come across.

I know they work, but it is worth noting that “extensions downloaded for web app stores have their own potential risks”. Risk? Did not you say it works?

Let me give you some summarized reasons for the statement.

1. Firstly, they are often built by third parties companies.

2. Can be resource-heavy and slow down the page performance.

3. They are not native adblockers like Brave built-in adblocking features which ensure better efficiency and security

I am sure the reasons are enough to justify my statement which is based on my own personal encounter throughout the years. 

Now, let’s move on to the primary segment of the discussion, which is the focal point of this article.

Brave’s open-source lists are a set of rules that the browser uses to identify and block ads and trackers. These lists are maintained by a community of volunteers all around the world and are constantly updated with the latest threats. You can check out the original site of Brave which listed the commitments and protection. 

To Put the content in a nutshell.

Brave allows you to customize which lists are used and how aggressively ads and trackers are blocked. Ad- blockers by default block ads which is great for users aiming for a privacy-focused browser.


We could customize the blocking ads section from aggressive to even disabling it manually 

Steps to customize  under the  Shield section :
