Brave/Chrome version: 1.0.54/68.0.3440.91
Steps to reproduce the issue:
- Set Brave to always prefer desktop view.
- Open news.google.com
- Make sure you have your Google search setting set to always open links in a new tab.
- Tap on any link.
The tapped link will open in a new tab that is in desktop view.
The tapped link will open in a new tab that is in mobile view.
Brave shields are set to HTTPs Everywhere and to block third party cookies. So far I have seen this behavior on on news.google.com. Other websites that open links in new tab will do so in anew tab that is in desktop view.
