Add a 'Paste' menu entry / button to the 3-dot menu in the tab bar



Feature description :

When the Ctrl-V shortcut in not available or even possible, and when the top menu bar is not displayed / enabled (I like to maximize the space for page content), have an easily accessible menu entry / button to paste the clipboard content at the cursor position.

In Chromium (R59 at least), there’s such a Cut/Copy/Paste button set in the side menu :

And Brave also enjoys a side menu (the 3-dot button on the right in the tab bar) … :slight_smile:

Use case :

When using an in-browser terminal, like in Jupyter Notebook (, terminal based on term.js), it’s very useful to be able to copy and paste things ; the ‘copy’ action is available through a right-click popup menu on a selected text ; but with Brave, the ‘paste’ action is only available through the top menu bar (Edit / Paste), which I generally hide to get more room for page content ; and because the Ctrl-V shortcut is not available / possible in the terminal.
