Data from AppBrain suggests that Brave browser is gaining considerable traction among Android users. On the Google Play Store, Brave browser muscled its way into second place for two weeks before getting overtaken by Chrome in May.
Although the ranking algorithms for both the Google Play Store and the Apple App Store are proprietary, however, app developers seem to agree that user ratings, number of installations, and monthly active user counts are the most important factors.
Search volume around the app has also increased dramatically. Publicity from features such as the launch of Brave Rewards—allowing users to opt-in to view ads for Basic Attention Token—pushed the visibility of the browser ahead of both Firefox and Opera.
Meanwhile, Chrome still retains a large lead in search volume, largely because of its dominant position among desktop devices. Chrome currently has a 70 percent market share by active users.
On mobile, the data shows a slightly different story. Safari is the dominant browser thanks to its default status on the iPhone. However, that lead has been eroding to Google Chrome, likely due to slumping iPhone sales globally.
Alternative mobile browsers such as Firefox are barely visible on the charts. Brave browser is part of the minuscule “Other” category, not seen on the chart and dwarfed by the two leading browsers for mobile.
