A downloads icon in the extensions toolbar that shows the progress of downloads in the icon and also other downloads with the ability to completely stop or pause a download. Also a 12/24 hour digital clock in the extensions toolbar. Defaulting to 12 hour time format. (All of these features would be tweak-able through the settings of course.)
Yes the first one is necessary and I think it will be implemented soon If the Brave Browser team thinks it is necessary but the second request is not necessary but if implemented good for some people.
