How about answering the question?

Browns are tactile without an audible click.

Blues are tactile with an audible click.

The tactile component means both have an engagement point you can feel.

There are also force/weight factors with these. The blues require less pressure than the browns to actuate.

It lists as 'brown' switches. I can only assume that it's similar to Cherry MX brown switches, but technically not the same. Is that correct?

Got it last week. Very good for the money. Rgb works well with software.
Keeps going in and out of stock

What's the difference between Brown key and Blue key?

Just found their Blue key version is on sale too, but seems not so hot like the Brown key version.

As far as I know, Cherry MX browns and Kailh browns are pretty much identical. Same goes for some of the other "standard" colors (blue, red, etc). Since Cherry's patent expired a few years ago, other companies have created identical switches with the same color scheme, but for cheaper.
