The latest update to the Google Chrome browser, dubbed Chrome 69, has brought a multitude of user complaints.

While most actually like the aesthetic changes brought about by the update, there are a growing number of users requesting an option to revert back to the older build in order to bring stability back to the system. Additionally, there are a growing number of reports of lag, crashing and improper website rendering on both desktop and mobile browsers.

Brave Software, the company behind the open source ad-blocking Brave browser and Basic Attention Token (BAT), could stand to gain from user dissatisfaction with the ‘new’ Chrome.

Popular Science, a widely recognized science and technology magazine, recently listed Brave Browser, alongside Firefox and Opera (OPRA), as a viable alternative to leading browsers like Chrome and Safari.

“The Brave browser emphasizes security and privacy. To start with, it comes with a built-in ad-blocker (just remember to whitelist the sites you want to support) so pop-ups can’t weigh down your browsing and websites can’t track you as well. For even more control, Brave features advanced security settings,” wrote Popular Science.

While Chrome is a clear leader in the field, the user-first functionality of the Brave browser coupled with the ongoing stability issues facing Chrome could be enough to propel it to additional market share.

Brave recently surpassed 10 million downloads in addition to over 4 million active monthly users. BAT currently has a $174 million market cap, making it the 42nd largest altcoin in the AltDex 100 Index (ALT100), a benchmark index for large-cap cryptocurrencies and tokens.
