Address bar on bottom would be amazing

Tried it on other browsers and with all the big phones, reaching the address bar on bottom is so much easier and would make browsing much better

There is a setting for this in the Appearance section.

At least on the stable that setting doesnt move the address bar down, just places a tool bar on bottom but the address bar remains on top

Oh goodness, @teobb I’m sorry. Totally did not read your question carefully enough. :man_facepalming:t2:

No problem :smiley: I hope a developer reads it! It’s a very smart feature that makes the browser more comfortabe to use and it’s very possible to implement :smiley:
So far Samsung Internet, Vivaldi, Kiwi (those are chromium based) have it as a setting, so I think Brave developers teams should be able to implement it too

Yeah I use firefox also, and it has a really well designed bottom toolbar.

Yes, me too, I wish they could “copy” the bottom URL bar and the speed dial tiles in new page from them, not sure if an actual developer will ever read me tho

UPDATE: I’ve learned that Kiwi browser is full open source (also Chromium based) and implements the bottom URL bar, so I think the code could be forked into Brave from it

I will check out the mentioned browsers, perhaps they are more what I’m looking for - no reason to wait around for Brave to get serious with Android.

Could be nice to have that option, no matter I rether prefer URL bar on top, but that’s my personal choice.

Option for both upper/bottom is best I think!

Decisions, decisions, decisions!!!

You already have an option to enable bottom toolbar.


Just use ‘search’ button to reach addres bar

What I mean is to move the URL bar on bottom, just like the picture in the first post, I don’t think we need 2 bars one on top one on bottom, but simply to move the upper one (URL bar) on bottom, simple and clean

You know who also got a fast browser with optional bottom address bar?

Vivaldi

I’m using that while I wait for Brave to make a decent Android browser.

What exactly do you need to do with YouTube, and how does Brave for Android support this right now?
