Idk if it’s only me but Brave does not open the Google anymore. DuckDuckGo works. I don’t get same error elsewhere so far. I was using another browser only for Google but I just dropped using Brave for this reason. Error I get is:
This site can’t be reached
The webpage at https://www.google.nl/XXXX might be temporarily down or it may have moved permanently to a new web address.
I support the idea behind the Brave very much but I can’t fix some issues like this. Hope it gets better soon.
