I would immediately switch from Firefox under Fedora 29 if ONE small feature was not missing in the Brave setup.
I apologize if I just missed where it hides.
Brave is unusable without support of this path collected from Firefox
Preferences->General->Languages & Appearance->Fonts & Clors->Default Font->Advanced at FALL BACK TEXT ENCODING missing in Brave
This is NOT an issue of old vs new browsers but of LEGACY CONTENT THAT FAILS TO DECLARE ITS ENCODING.
Under Fedora 28 and 29 the Linux locale first variable LANG is by default set to utf-8 in my country, while sites www.qwant.com www.google.com www.brave.com gmail.com for example work only when LANG is central Europe,ISO. While almost all off the shelf Fedora-ware requiresapplications require UTF-8 It does not make any sense to expect the user to play with the locale feature wach time a different application page is needed.
The parameter does not appear at all in Brave seup contrarily to Firefox, so that it is seems to me impossible to use any text box upon launching Brave.
I would not have wasted the time needed to write this note if Brave was not the SPLENDID piece of work it is.
