  • Brave is rolling out a new feature for its browser that will bypass AMP pages and take users directly to the original website.
  • De-AMP is designed to rewrite links and URLs in order to block pages rendered with AMP.
  • It will be enabled by default in the upcoming 1.38 desktop and Android versions of the browser.

Brave has joined the growing chorus of organizations that want Google’s Accelerated Mobile Pages (AMP) to go down the drain. It has announced a new feature that allows its browser to automatically skip over Accelerated Mobile Pages (AMP), and it didn’t mince words in denouncing this “harmful” framework.

In a blog post, Brave explained that the new De-AMP is designed to let users go past pages rendered with AMP and navigate directly to the original websites. It works by rewriting links and URLs in order to avoid AMP pages.
