Brave, a privacy-focused web browser, integrates Binance’s widget into its latest version for all of its desktop offerings.
A April 30 message notes that the widget (or plugin) is enabled by default, which puts the Binance cryptocurrency exchange in front of millions of browsers.
Previously, the plugin was only available for testing in Brave Nightly and Beta versions.
Plug in, set up and sell
Every user who opens a new tab or window in the browser sees the new Binance plugin, along with the Brave Awards plugin on the right side of the page.
They are then asked to link the plugin to their Binance account, and once they have verified, they can view their assets and trade.
Along with a summary of the assets held, users can buy cryptocurrency, deposit assets on the stock exchange and convert between any supported assets.
Because the plugin is built directly into the browser, it maintains user privacy and will only communicate with the Binance API through authenticated user interaction.
Users can easily turn it off, preventing the browser from interacting with their accounts, unless they go through the authentication process again. While the plugin is enabled by default, anyone can manually hide it.
Expect mobile versions later this year
Brave currently has over 13.5 million monthly active users across all platforms. The Binance plugin is now integrated with all desktop versions of the software, for Windows, Mac and Linux operating systems.
It will be available for mobile versions of Brave for Android and iOS later this year.
