Cannot edit Brave Shields general settings

Versión 0.55.2 Chromium: 70.0.3528.4 (Build oficial) dev (64 bits)

When I click on the shield icon and then on “edit default shield settings”, I get taken to the “chrome://settings/” page, but no settings for the shields show up.

When I click on the menu bar and then on “brave ad block”, I get taken to a page where the only content is LITERALLY the following text:

“Total Ads Blocked: 234
Regional Ad Block: Enabled
SPA: EasyList Spanish”

Could someone tell me if its a bug? Or there is another way of editing the Brave shields general settings?
Thanks in advance

PS: I can edit the settings for EACH site INDIVIDUALLY by clicking the shields icon, but I cannot do it in general

Hi @justa,

That’s expected, i think. Since this one is early build, still-in-work developer version. Have no complete features implemented. Like Brave rewards on Windows, sync, tor tab, etc. About the Developer Builds category

And the team working on it.
Feel free to use it to report a bug or an issues that you face.

As @eljuno said, its a very early build and there are still features that have to be implemented. Our CTO wrote a summary of what to expect from the Dev builds and upcoming updates. You can see the original Reddit post here, but for your convenience, here’s an excerpt:

Some big items from the top of my head that you can look out for in this release:

  • All extensions are now installable by default. We maintain 3 levels of support: Allowed and vetted, Allowed and unvetted (we give an extra warning), and blocked. Currently the blocked list is empty but we plan to add unsafe things there.
  • You can import both from the current version of Brave, Chrome, and other browsers.
  • Beautiful welcome page.
  • Multi channel support, initially with the release of Dev channel. Beta channel and Release channel coming in 3 and 6 weeks respectively. Channels will always be updated, where Dev channel will always contain the newest code.
  • Ad-blocking which is more efficient than the current version of Brave since all blocking is done on the network thread now.
  • Regional ad-blocking, but with auto selection of region instead of opt-in like in the current product.
  • Tracking protection support.
  • HTTPS everywhere support.
  • Cookie blocking support.
  • Fingerprinting protection support.
  • Referrer blocking support.
  • NoScript support.
  • Permission based autoplay support.
  • WebTorrent support.
  • Default built-in light and dark theme support, dark theme by default only for Dev channel, but can be used in any channel in preferences.
  • Persistent “Block this element” support by right clicking on anything in any page.
  • Chrome specific privacy invasive things are all removed.
  • Search terms fed to Google suggest off by default, instead use Alexa top sites as a data source.
  • An early form of Brave Rewards, formerly called Brave payments is in, but currently disabled on Windows.
  • Brave’s new tab page.
  • Restores last session by default.
  • Distinct search engine selection for private new tab page.
  • Localization.
  • Safe browsing proxied to be more private.
  • Flash disabled by default, but can be turned on.
  • Using PDF.js by default instead of PDFium which has frequent security problems in Chrome.
  • Widevine on macOS.
  • I’m forgetting lots more…

Some big items landing in an update within the next couple weeks are:

  • Tor private window support.
  • Widevine on Windows (Linux will be later but not within 2 weeks).
  • More UI changes to look more Brave-like.
  • Referral builds
