Brave Search replaces Google as default search engine in Brave Browser

Wednesday 20 October 2021 | 09:14 CET | News
Brave Software said its Brave Search has became its browser's default search engine, replacing Google for new Brave users in the US, Canada, and the UK. Brave Search as default also replaces Qwant in France, and DuckDuckGo in Germany, with more geographies to be added in the next several months. Existing Brave users will keep their chosen search engine default, and can set Brave Search as the default search engine in Brave or most other major browsers.
