I have a Samsung S7+ tablet and love the Brave browser but when I create a new tab by pressing CTRL + T the focus is not moved to the text input box of the new tab and so if I start typing it does nothing. You have to either manually touch the address / search bar or press CTRL + L, to move focus to it before typing.
No Android browser I have come across handles this properly and it’s really annoying. I cannot see a case against this “feature”, it just seems like an oversight for Android keyboard users.
- Connect a keyboard to an Android device
- Launch Brave browser
- Use CTRL + T shortcut to open a new tab
- Begin typing and observe that text does not enter the search box of the new tab as expected
- (workaround) Press CTRL + L to move focus to the search box
