Let me preface this with a concern i have about BRAVE support… it seems that too often an issue is redirected and closed rather than addressed. Remember that BRAVE users do not want to have to bring up issues… what they really want is to use the browser without problems and with personal privacy and security.
Now for the issue as I see it.
More Granular Cookie Control
It would be nice it BRAVE developers could collect all the best ideas about Cookie management from currently available technologies like current browsers and browser extensions and cookie management apps. Then they could research all the previous BRAVE user cookie related requests and suggestions and then survey current BRAVE users for ideas… then create a plan for incorporating all that they can and giving BRAVE the absolute best and most granular cookie management. Have the BRAVE team place a ranking/rating on what the BRAVE team feels are the best cookie management technologies and submit it for perusal by the BRAVE community and try to acommodate the community requests and additions and concerns as much as possible… then seek to implement the ideas one by one in order of ranking with at least one addition to each new release.
One idea I think may have merit would be to implement data encryption for all data files wherever possible. So lets say BRAVE saves a cookie… it is encrypted and only BRAVE knows the key so any request for that cookie would have to go through BRAVE to get it unencrypted and BRAVE could be vetting the requests… without BRAVE the cookie file is unreadable. This could be done with all data that could compromise privacy or security or lead to fingerprinting.
Sadly, this idea will probably lost when someone decides that another topic trumps this one and closes this without transferring the unique aspects to that topic… the rationale will be that this idea doesn’t belong in that topic… the ideas of users are being lost with this treatment and practice and it is a shame. If users feel like they are not being listened to then they will not be very enthusiastic… this is where we have gone wrong… business sees customer ideas and requests as a drain and uses tech support to fend them off so developers don’t see them… that is when customers give up on the product and the creativity and user perspective is lost and the product begins to die. This vital link between the users and the developers shouldn’t be discouraged… it should be fostered and nurtured to the end of achieving the highest customer satisfaction and best product possible. I realize some philosophy is in this… but I believe we are losing when we abandon this philosophy.
