Brave launched its new browser designed to offer users a fast browsing experience, while funding the Web through a new attention-based platform of privacy-preserving advertisements and rewards.

Brave’s private ads and payment platform (Brave Rewards) is now available for iPhones and iPads in addition to desktops and Android devices.

“Either we all accept the $330 billion ad-tech industry treating us as their products, exploiting our data, piling on more data breaches and privacy scandals, and starving publishers of revenue; or we reject the surveillance economy and replace it with something better that works for everyone. That’s the inspiration behind Brave,” the company wrote in a post.

Testim announces a new development kit for AI-based testing

Testim announced a new AI-based testing kit for developers to create resilient tests directly in code.

“Testim’s open approach to testing lets developers and QA engineers write tests their way, in their tools and processes, so they can collaborate freely. Unlike other codeless test automation tools, developers can download their tests as code, eliminating vendor lock-in,” the company wrote in a post.

The AI inspects the elements of the application and continuously learns from and improves the robustness of tests.
