The Brave Search engine recently announced a significant upgrade. Brave is a browser that prioritizes user privacy. Complete autonomy from competing search engines is a major milestone in its history.
Brave Stops Using Bing
Brave’s push for autonomy was facilitated by the increasing rates and unclear accessibility of Bing’s API. However, the benefits go far beyond mere cost saving.
Due to its autonomy, Brave is in charge of its own search engine and index, which provides the basis for all search results. It’s significant because Brave Search uses its own index rather than that of the dominant search engines.
Brave is intending to show the Brave Search API as part of our effort to provide alternatives to Big Tech. Developers and businesses can use it to create search experiences that can hold their own against those offered by Big Tech.
