Brave Browser 1.17.73 (Mac) Fails to Embed WhereFroms MetaData in Downloads


Brave Browser 1.17.73 Chromium: 87.0.4280.67 (Official Build) (x86_64) (Macintosh)

Brave fails to embed WhereFroms metadata in downloads.

Brave used to do this properly, but the feature broke about version 0.65.120.

I find this insupportable.

It breaks my workflows, because I save downloaded files to various destinations based on several criteria including WhereFroms.

AND in my view this is a security issue as well, because I cannot Get-Info on a file and find out where it came from.

Google Chrome does NOT have this problem, and much as I wanted to stay with brave your inattention to this matter for a year and a half has made me revert to Chrome.

I’m astounded that I seem to be the only one concerned about this matter and that NO ONE on the Brave developer team has seen fit to comment.
