@OurFreeSociety you can use keyboard shortcut if you want. The default one is Ctrl+Shift+Del,. But Brave allows you to customize shortcuts, so you can always edit, add, or remove shortcuts at brave://settings/system/shortcuts
As to why they removed things, I have no idea. Part of it was because people were complaining that the hamburger menu was too crowded. So they moved a lot of things around and some options vanished, such as Clear Browsing Data and Brave Rewards. So now we have to find alternative methods to get to those locations.
