Brave began its existence three years ago by blocking all ads by default. On Tuesday, it'll start offering anyone using the developer version of Brave the option of seeing privacy-respecting ads. And, in a few weeks, when Brave 1.0 arrives on personal computers, Brave will give those users 70 percent of the ad revenue. "We think we can make advertising great," Brave co-founder and Chief Executive Brendan Eich said in an exclusive interview with CNET about the new phase of the company's business. ... Convincing people to sign up for the whole system is one of Brave's challenges. If nothing else, it's a lot to digest. Big publishers will have to learn to accept a very different ad system, and Brave will have to convince creators and publishers to sign on. Tens of thousands have joined up so far, though.
