Similar to other individuals in this group, I participate in many activities, such as work, education, volunteer, and hobbies. As such I require my daily driver browser to be one that is able to properly handle and manage all these different tasks that I perform on a daily basis. Brave has quickly moved up the ranks and is now becoming my go-to browser but as I have just finished migrating all my data, I realized that brave is severely lacking a feature that I NEED to perform my daily tasks with ease and efficiency. THIS FEATURE IS A WAY TO SELECT MY PROFILE CHOICE WHEN LAUNCHING MY BROWSER AFTER SHUTDOWN. Right now, when starting up brave, I enter the profile of my last used profile, and therefore I must go into the setting and switch the profile. This simple fact has really confused me and even caused me to combine my different activities when in a hurry. On top of this, I am also unable to change the profile icon to something other than the default colors. I myself am not a color person so this has led to further confusion.
Below I will detail the problem as well as the desired solution/request.
Currently, when loading up the brave browser, I am immediately taken to my last used profile. As in the last profile that I closed is the one that loads up. For example, in the below image you see that I am on Profile 2. If and when I close the browser, the same Profile 2 is the one that will open. This fact has proven to be a major annoyance and has severely impacted the way I handle work-life balance.
Solution / Request / Proposal:
I would like to propose that rather than starting Brave Browser with the last used profile, we have an option to start brave with Profile Manager that will allow us to choose our desired profile workspace to enter. Below I have attached an image of what I am proposing to be the start-up prompt.
As you can see, from the above image, after launching the brave browser, I would have an option to select my desired profile to enter. Someone such as myself who has 5-7 profiles will find great use in this feature ( Especially if I am also able to change my profile image to further distinguish between my different workspaces… I am not a fan of colors. ).
I hope to really see this feature implemented within brave. I have already migrated my entire work-life onto brave and am loving the experience so far. This feature would complete and thus make Brave my favorite browser of all.
If someone knows how to currently do this I would really appreciate it if you could share with me as well as anyone else who may find this feature to be helpful.
