Privacy-focused web browser Brave has integrated the Binance widget into the latest stable release across all of its desktop offerings. 

An announcement on April 30 notes that the widget is enabled by default, placing the Binance cryptocurrency exchange in front of all of the browser’s millions of desktop users.

Previously the widget was only available for testing in Brave Nightly and Beta versions.

Turn on, tune in, and trade out

Any user opening a new tab or window in the browser is clearly presented with the new Binance widget along with the Brave rewards widget on the right side of the page.

They are then prompted to connect the widget to their Binance account, and once authenticated can view their held assets and trade to their heart’s content.

As well as a summary of the assets held, users can buy cryptocurrency, deposit assets onto the exchange and convert between any asset supported.

Security built in

As the widget is built directly into the browser it preserves user privacy, and will only communicate with the Binance API through authenticated user interaction.

Users can easily disconnect the widget, preventing the browser from further interaction with their account unless it goes through the authentication process again. While the widget is enabled by default, those who wish to can manually hide it. 

Coming to mobile versions later in the year

Brave browser currently has over 13.5 million active monthly users across all platforms. The Binance widget is currently integrated into all desktop versions of the software, for Windows, Mac and Linux operating systems.

It will be available for Brave’s mobile browser versions on Android and iOS later in the year.
