4 Upcoming Brave Browser Changes to Look Forward to

A lot of cryptocurrency enthusiasts are smitten by the capabilities provided by the Brave browser. It is a worthy rival to take on the likes of Google Chrome and Mozilla Firefox. In a recently “leaked” conversation, it becomes apparent a few key additional features will be coming to this popular browsing tool. Further spreading the appeal of this project is an ongoing process.

Reddit Tipping is in the Works

While Brave mainly aims to reward content creators by allowing others to tip them in BAT, the company also looks beyond traditional offerings. Whereas Twitch and YouTube are the more popular supported content creation platforms as of right now, it is crucial to explore every single option. Integrating support for tipping Reddit users – assuming they are verified – is one way of ensuring the Brave browser becomes more commonly used in the future.

While it remains to be seen how successful this integration will be, there are precedents for tipping Reddit users. Reddit Gold is the most obvious example, albeit several cryptocurrency tip bots have come and gone over the past few years as well. As such, there is a genuine chance this new feature will spark a major increase in overall Brave user numbers. Users will also be able to tip Reddit users as part of their Auto-Contribute settings, which is pretty interesting.

Vimeo to be Supported Soon

As one would come to expect, YouTube and Twitch are not the only big content creation video platforms worth keeping an eye on. Vimeo, which not necessarily as commonly used in most parts of the world, is still a pretty popular solution in terms of video content. As such, it would make a lot of sense for the Brave team to effectively introduce support for Vimeo, both in terms of tipping and verifying.

As is the case with Reddit as well, it remains a bit unclear when both of these platforms will be supported officially. It seems a new Brave browser update is coming in the next few weeks or months, which is always worth keeping an eye on. For the users, it is also good to see more major platforms receiving official support. Being able to reach a wider audience can bring more attention to Basic Attention Token as a whole.

Android ads Come Next Week

For mobile users, the wait for a Brave browser solution has been a somewhat lengthy one. Android users will finally be able to view advertisements and earn BAT while using the Brave browser. Up until now, that functionality was not accessible yet, but it seems it will roll out on June 13, barring any unforeseen circumstances. The ability to view ads will still be limited in terms of whether one’s native country is supported at this time. The majority of countries has yet to be supported, but things should be coming together fairly soon.

Metamask Fork Integration

As convenient as the Brave browser may look, there is still a growing demand for two-way wallet support. Screenshots confirm the upcoming browser version will include Metamask fork support, which is something a lot of people will be more than happy with. This will also make it easier for users to transfer their BAT balance to and from the browser’s built-in wallet, which will improve the overall user experience. All things considered, it is still a good change.
