Description of the issue:
Brave Search gives wrong weather location for Jamestown CO
This plays out in three UX issues:
Background: This sounds like whining, but weather is something that I use a lot - I suspect I’m not alone. I was using google as a search engine, because it’s more relevant to me than DD. For Brave search to gain popularity, common user functions should mimic the most popular search engine when it doesn’t inhibit the privacy mission. I dearly want Brave to succeed, but UX nits could inhibit success.
I live in Jamestown CO. For “Jamestown CO” , as the first result, Brave Search serves up weather for Jamestown CA.
In google, I type in “jamestown weather” and it remembers the state CO after the first time I explicitly typed it in.
For “Jamestown Weather” Brave serves up Jamestown ND. It needs to remember the state.
UX should be as similar to google as possible to enhance familiarity. Brave search serves up from openweather, google serves it from weather.com. The weather.com interface is nicer, and has selectors for temp, wind, and precipitation on the front of it.
Might I have fixed this using a location setting? Perhaps, but that wasn’t needed on my previous search engine. If this is a setting, please LMK how I might correct this. The help didn’t really tell me.
