Ability to change the background image of the Brave home page to a user chosen image

@VAPG1974 :joy: absolutely, I read the github on this topic where clifton said they are low in developers numbers.and they are focusing on other things…why they are doing the video call and this crypto thing…They are trying to do it all at the same time.Just a browser with all necessary things should have been there.All i see is query topics related to uphold and all that. No basic features no translate.Android version has many bugs too and lack features.



Apparently, changing background is in progress but Idk how long it’ll take. Been asking for months now, most likely will get a solid update in 2 yrs at this point.

Like, I do love Brave and all but not having this one feature puts me off. Sometimes I do think i should switch back.


yuppppppp!..i have no hope for now.

switch back to? chrome or opera

Hard decision…pawned by SJWs or by CCP…
But still we have the option of “Tab Search”. Besides, the Reading list feature could be rewritten in order to accomodate tabs, bookmarks as well…

read later in bookmarks bar is a nice feature to have Read Later feature in bookmark bar

I would like to be able to mark favorite some of the pictures and block others. When I first installed Brave this horrible picture of Jelly Fish showed up. Very scary. I would pay to keep the nice picture of Kyoto temple.

@Mattches How has it been over 3 months and there is no update on this feature?


Exactly just like I thought

No reply, outstanding a simple feature isn’t even on Brave.

They have to prioritize their resources I guess…

We’ve been waiting for like 3 yrs tbf

They don’t even have to spend resources on it: Chrome already have that feature.

Tell us more, good sire…

Chrome new tab custom background option. The option is there, they just need to make it available.

Let’s look on flags…

You’re right. I know this is a bit of an old but ongoing thread but for the love of God Brave, guys, please give us this feature.


Maybe a mob of peasants armed with forks and torches on Brave’s doors would make the magic…

Is this going anywhere? I would love to see this implemented on Android as well… maybe if we could just pin down an image we like and have that be the only one that shows up that would be awesome!
