I find the bright orange color is also very distracting on the application icon itself, which appears in the dock (MacOS).
This would be much improved if the color of the icon would be changed to a much lighter shade of orange.
if you look at all other app icons, nothing is so excessively bright – it actually hurts my eyes to see the Brave app icon in my field of vision when it comes up on the dock. All other app icons are more neutral in color. While the Brave icon looks like a mega-watt traffic cone.
