The following guide lists tweaks and suggestions on how to speed up the Brave web browser to reduce lag and improve the browser's performance. We have published guide on speeding up the Opera and Vivaldi browsers previously, and this guide is the third part of the series.
Brave, like most desktop web browsers, is based on Chromium. Other Chromium browsers are Google Chrome, Vivaldi, Opera, and the new Microsoft Edge browser that Microsoft started to work on in 2019.
As a Chromium-based browser, Brave is quite fast already; the browser's blocking of advertisement improves performance significantly as well when it comes to the loading of webpages.
Brave's default settings leave room for improvements. Like all browsers, it ships with a default set of features designed to provide a good mix of features and speed.
You can access the Brave Settings from the main menu or by loading chrome://settings/ directly. The settings are divided into a main and an advanced part, and it is a good idea to check them from top to bottom after initial installation.
Brave supports Chromium startup parameters. These are supplied on start and may modify certain features and settings of the browser that can't be changed in the browser's settings.
You may either run Brave from the command line and specify the parameters, or edit the shortcut that points to Brave to permanently use the parameters.
On Windows, you simply right-click on the Brave shortcut on the desktop or Start and select Properties. Note that you need to right-click on Brave a second time in the menu if you right-click on the Brave icon in the taskbar. Add the parameters to the end of the Target field and click ok to save the changes.
Now you: Have you tried Brave?Advertisement
