Brave Browser is now called Link Bubble... again

Long story short: Brave Browser, formerly known as Link Bubble, is now back to being Link Bubble. Brave Browser lives on though as a separate app.

Link Bubble was launched way back in 2014, and it brought something to the browsing world that no one else did: new links opened in small, unobtrusive bubbles that loaded in the background so that you wouldn’t ever have to just sit there and stare at a white screen.

Well, earlier this year, Brave Software – a startup founded by JavaScript creator and Mozilla co-founder and ex-CEO Brendan Eich – bought Link Bubble and renamed it Brave Browser. And now the browser’s name is back to Link Bubble. It’s a bit confusing, I know. Simply put, Brave Browser, formerly known as Link Bubble, is now back to being Link Bubble. And Brave Browser is just a separate app.

Like I said above, Brave Browser Link Bubble is a unique Internet browser that loads new pages in floating bubbles, kind of like Samsung’s minimized multitasking bubbles. Instead of staring at the loading bar reach the end, you can do other stuff and then come back and open the bubbles. Even after the acquisition by Brave Software, these features were kept, so really, Link Bubble is the same old app that we loved years ago.

Meanwhile, there will be a separate app called Brave Browser, which features a regular tabbed interface. Brave Browser will have the same ad-blocking capabilities found in Link Bubble, so whichever you use, there’s no need to download a plug-in for ad-blocking.
