I am using Android 14. I use bottom tool bar. Can you post your screenshot?
Brave’s bottom tool bar contains only these: home icon, bookmark icon, search icon, tab numbers, three dots.
The address bar still stays top.
Are you referring to address bar? That always stays top.

Hello, I actually realized that I was confused about what “toolbar” meant. I thought it meant the search bar where you enter urls. I didn’t realize it was just the settings and bookmark etc tools that moved to the bottom. I was expecting the search bar to go to the bottom like Safari and Firefox do.

Firefox has address bar at bottom. In brave it stays top. I guess as per appearance brave inherit features from chromium. Then add its filters on top of it to make it more private. You can add this as a feature request if you wish.
