Brave: privacy-aware browser

Brave is a brand new privacy-aware browser from Andreas Gal, former CTO of Mozilla and JS founder Brendan Eich. Brave brings with it the privacy and security related capabilities you get from extensions in other browsers. Does the browser you are using right now have ad-blocker and HTTP to HTTPS conversion extensions? With Brave, you need not bother.
