I’m curious as a user who works extensively with PDF documents, why Brove opens a URL which I don’t recognise.
As an example, if I visit this URL to view or download a PDF file…
… then the actual URL that appears is modified by Brave to the following.
This has implications for me, since I normally cite the original URL in separate notes when I save medical research articles. It means that I can’t save the modified URL, so I have to cut-out the relevant part. Annoying but not a problem I’m looking to fix - just that I’m curious why it needs to change the URL to such a strange cryptic string.
I’m guessing this is an underlying characteristic of Chrome, but as I normally avoid anything related to Google, unless I can help it, I’m not sure. Any ideas?
