I'm testing out the new Brave search. It was pretty much a no brainer to replace Bing as the b shortcut in Vivaldi. Looks nice so far. It'll be interesting to see how search compares to more established engines like DDG.



@mike tried it for a few days when it was in private beta. It was ok, but didn’t offer me anything over DDG, so I switched back.

@kev That's been kind of my impression too. Plus some of Brave's behavior in the past has been "questionable" in my opinion, so it would require something more than prettier graphics (IMHO) to get me to switch. I'm not seeing it.

It was optimized really hard to match Google results, to the point at which many SERPs are actually identical.

I'd rather use Mojeek, Gigablast, or Right Dao for independent results.
