Colors are different compared to other browsers


#1

brave_

This image shows the same button in 2 different browsers,
first is Brave, the other is FF (which looks the same as Chrome).

The CSS for this is
.button{
background-color: rgba(32, 132, 240, 0.5); }

Obviously, the color is far off.
(have to admit, saving the image as jpg exaggerated the purple color a little bit… )

Version 0.18.36 , ubuntu.

Hi, do you experience the difference on other elements as reported on this page for example?

thanks!

no, the windows and other things are fine.
It is just that the rgb color seems off by about 30points

Open this in Brave and another brower to see the difference

This is a comparison on my environment (Windows 10). The left one is on Chrome, the right one is on Brave.

It looks like the issue can only be reproduced on linux. I’ll forward the issue to the team.

If you have other distros such as Debian set up, it would be appreciated if you could check the issue can be reproduced on that too. It will help us to narrow the issue down. thanks!

Yep, using Brave, I experience a pink/grayish salmon color which impinges on every image that is viewed. OS is windows 8.1 pro (which will be retired soon). Alas, I’m not a developer, but when I can use Brave for image viewing, I will be happy to become a $ contributor $. Paying for what is good tends to allow more of it.

I have just started seeing this behavior, everything is pink. Not just the web pages but also the browser frame and tabs and all. Not the end of the world for me, I don’t do serious image work, but it’s weird looking.

I think it is new today since the latest update. This is the version I got I am pretty sure it is from this morning.

Brave 0.23.73
V8 6.8.275.24

I have been using BRAVE browser since last 4 months. I would admit that I was also using IE, Chrome and Mozilla parallelly just to evaluate BRAVE browser, to see which browser is smooth and flawless. Initially Brave had some issues but with the newer versions, almost all issues got fixed. And after using all the browsers for 4 months everyday, I can conclude today that Brave stands out and ranks 1st in my list. And this is why I have ranked Brave 1st in my list:

  1. in terms of security: http to https (so I don’t need to worry while making credit card payments or buying something, because Brave takes care of https)

  2. blocks scripts, trackers and ads, and that’s why the sites don’t get stuck n freezed while browsing. I have had many incidents with IE, Chrome and Mozilla, where the sites like forbes, cnn, slickdeals and coinmarketcap would get stuck n freeze for no fucking reason and it shows that site is not responding. I never had this issue on Brave. This is because Brave blocks scripts, ads and trackers. It gives you smooth browsing experience.
