On desktop, Brave is a Chromium-based browser. In the past, Brave was an Electron application that featured a custom HTML, CSS and JavaScriptJavaScript front-end. The Electron-based architecture was developed by Brave as "Muon", intended to be a more secure fork of the Electron framework. However, in March 2018, Brave announced that it would be transitioning over to a full native, C++ Chromium front-end and abandoning its Muon architecture. The new native architecture would be named Brave-core.
