Hi Brave Community
Does the Brave desktop version support ad-blocking like the Android version or not?
On my Android phone, if I tap the Brave icon I see the following Shield options:
Block Ads & Tracking
Block 3rd party cookies
But on the desktop version, I see the following:
Cross-site trackers blocked
Connections upgraded to HTTPS
Cross-site cookies blocked
Device recognition attempts blocked
These seem more confusing in their wording than the Android version. So on the desktop version does “Cross-site trackers blocked” also block adverts or not? If so, can I suggest the UI text in the desktop version get renamed to match the Android version as the wordings used on Android for each option are far-more logical in explaining what they do.
If the desktop one doesn’t support ad-blocking, I can install an add-on I guess… but would be a shame as this is the main reason I use Brave on Android.
