Claim: The newly redesigned Brave browser based on Chromium project is 22% faster than old version
Evidence/Argument: I did a regular speed test for browsers using a free online browser speed test website http://www.speed-battle.com and the results look better for the newer version of Brave browser. I did a bunch of repeat tests and found that the numbers consistently came better for the new browser. Higher score means better performance. Please find the comparison results.
