As with all other web browsers, you can change the Brave browser homepage to any website of your choice. It allows you to open that site in the browser by just clicking the home button. We’ll show you how to set this up.
To make a site your homepage, all you need is the web address (URL) of that site or webpage. You type or paste this address into Brave and the browser makes it your home page.
