Brave Leo AI

At the current stage, you can pick from more than enough AI chatbots. There’s Bing Chat, Google Bard, ChatGPT, and many others. Well, Brave Leo is the newest addition to this list. It’s the in-browser chatbot that’s available for the Brave browser.

For those unaware, Brave browser is well-known for putting a focus on privacy. It offers more control over what information is collected. The browser also automatically blocks third-party cookies and cross-site trackers. And the Leo chatbot isn’t an exception in this regard.

More About Brave Leo

The browser-native chatbot Brave Leo is rolling out for all desktop users who are running version 1.60 of the browser. However, not all the browsers in this version may have it, as the company is launching the AI chatbot in phases. But it should land on all devices over the next few days.

That said, it’s not the first time Leo has made an entrance on the Brave browser. The AI chatbot was initially launched for feedback in the Nightly channel back in August. During this Nightly release, Brave promised to make the AI chatbot available to all users in the coming months. And the company has delivered.

Now, when it comes to capabilities, the Brave Leo offers a similar performance as its main competitors. You can ask questions, make it summarize web pages, get translations, or use it to generate new content. But what really makes the chatbot stand out is privacy.

According to Brave, the requests on Leo are “proxied through an anonymized server.” What’s more important is that the responses are discarded after the AI chatbot generates them. This differs from other chatbots as most use the user’s chat to further train the model.

Moreover, you don’t need to create an account to use Brave Leo. All you need is the latest version of the browser. And there are two tiers: free and premium. The free version utilizes Meta’s LLaMA 2 LLM, while the premium offers Anthropic’s Claude Instant with a subscription fee of US$15. Brave says that more models will be available for the premium version in the future.
