Brave’s New Filter “Goggles” Could Help You Uncover More Sources

Brave Search has launched a new feature that gives you a way to create or apply custom filters that change the way its results are ranked.

In addition to launching Goggles, Brave also announced that its search engine is out of beta and that it has already seen 2.5 billion searches within the past year. It’s called “Goggles,” and it could potentially help uncover sources you might not find right away on traditional search engines like Google. It rolled out a new Discussions feature in April that started eliminating the need for users to append “Reddit” to the end of their searches — it now displays results from Reddit for relevant inquiries.
