I have been using Brave as my default browser on iPad Air 2 (running iOS 13.3.1). I will be going back to Safari because Brave has become unusable - examples of malfunctions:
(1) set to delete all content on closure and after manual delete, Brave now occupies about 700MB on iPad. What is this bloat?!? Either Brave or Apple are hoarding crud. I hate crud.
(2) my main email is Hushmail, based online. I cannot read emails using Brave because the ‘focus’ does not move when I try to scroll down the page.
(3) when accessing websites with large image content, the browser cannot shift focus - focus locks on the first image and the screen ‘shudders’ as the image goes in and out of focus, and scroll is disabled. Is the cache (?) overwhelmed by large file sizes?!?
(4) I get alerts when using eBay to ‘update browser’ and key functions on the website no longer work - for example, when I do a search, the eBay default is to show ‘most relevant’ results. There is a dropdown menu to select other ways to sort results e.g. by price or ‘ending soonest’. That dropdown list no longer works on Brave.
I like the idea of a private browser without the nuisance of adverts or spyware but Brave does not deliver this on an iPad.
