Brave CEO Brendan Eich publishes Brave browser and search stats on X regularly. Judging by the numbers, Brave's usage is going up. According to Eich, Brave saw the "biggest growth month on record" in May 2024.

Here are the stats for the browser:
  • Monthly active users rose from 73.55M to 78.95M.
  • Daily active users rose from 27.46M to 28.64M.
  • Mean daily active users rose from 26.1M to 27.27M.
Eich notes that Brave Browser did particularly well in Latin America in regards to new user acquisitions. The browser managed to get to the top of the Google Play Store in some countries as well, which also helped according to Eich.

Last year, Eich reported 56.22M monthly active users and 22.13M daily active users for Brave Browser.

While usage is still relatively low when compared to the top 5 browsers on the desktop, it is clear that Brave Browser is increasing significantly.

Brave Search stats improved as well:
  • Monthly search queries rose form 818.67M to 843.02M.
  • 7-day mean rose from 26.31M to 28.05M.
  • 28-day mean rose from 26.30 to 27.25M.
One year ago, Eich reported 617.3M monthly search queries and peaks of 19.46M and 19.8M respectively.

It's great to see Brave's continuous growth, both in terms of browser usage and search queries. The increase in active users and new user acquisitions, particularly in Latin America, is impressive. The rise in search queries also indicates that more people are starting to trust and use Brave Search. Despite being relatively smaller compared to top browsers, Brave's consistent growth is a positive sign.
