Love the concept of Brave, but there are a few things in the implementation that could maybe use a little bit more polish, and that make me miss Chrome.
One of the biggest hassles so far is URL auto-completion from browser history. When I begin typing, it often wants to complete a page deep within a particular site, rather than giving me an option to simply go to that site’s front page.
Auto-complete should begin matching with individual hostnames and give the option of selecting them first, rather than having to edit a URL to get back to a site’s front page.
If I wanted to visit example.com’s front page, I begin typing “exam” and get the following auto-complete behavior (the space and italics demonstrate what Brave tries to auto-complete):
I have to back out the italicized bit, because if I just keep typing and hit enter, it’s going to take me to that page that I don’t really want. It should give the option of completing just to the hostname.
