Hi @LadyFitzgerald I share your sentiments. If you’d downloaded the browser close to 2 years ago, you’d know that a few members of the team were relatively active in the community but I’d say just before 2018 I think as more efforts are being applied to fixing major issues which most us can’t visually appreciate.
I do think its a pity and I wish a couple of engineers later on when they’re not as stressed and they can finally alleviate their efforts across the team which will most likely have to be after v1 now better manage the community because there are some really good ideas from some people which unfortunately will and have gone unnoticed.
Brave was the only browser I utilized for well over a year and it made sense to support it and continue utilizing the new browser with the understanding that they were dead set on the front and back technologies that they were primarily going to be using for the extent of its life. However, if you’re not aware, their plans changed earlier this year which is why I stopped using it altogether because of three fundamental reasons.
The first being as expressed by you in the above comments.
The second being that I knew for certain that compared to the usual bugs that would appear before the new change, bugs and other issues that users would come to face at least until the end of this year (2018) are fully expected by the team but not really by newcomers and common users of Brave and will without a doubt cause confusion and conflict and annoy the team themselves not fully understanding the behind the scene efforts which quite possibly would negatively impact Brave as we’re currently seeing.
The third being that they’re not as kind to Linux users as they are to the users on the other major platforms
I do of course intend to use the browser again after v1 but right now it doesn’t make sense to use it at all because many aspects of the browser won’t and can’t be seen to at least until v1 is released, properly that is.
Have a look at their plans for Upcoming 1.0 Browser Release and it would likely make more sense as to why.
One other thing, @LadyFitzgerald I’m sure the great bunch of cryptographers and software engineers that Brave consists of trying to develop a unique browser based on Chromium, there’s bound to be at least one intensive developer with dual monitors experiencing the same issue as you and likewise wanting to fix it as well.
