Brave Search: A Brief HistoryThe journey towards independence for Brave Search began in 2021 following the acquisition of Tailcat’s search engine and development team. To create a fully independent search engine, Brave set out on a path that culminated in the launch of Brave Search Beta in June 2021. These include Discussions, allowing real-human conversations to appear in search results, Brave Search Goggles for customized results, and Brave Search Summarizer for AI-powered quick results. Being independent means Brave has complete control over its search engine, and its index powers all the search results. Looking towards the future, Brave plans to launch the Brave Search API, offering developers and companies access.
