Just started getting the exact same error message constantly tonight when doing a Google search in Brave laptop/desktop browser (with shields up or down).
Happens both when searching from the URL bar or after visiting Google.com and then immediately after hitting the search button. This occurs regularly now, but occasionally, searches will complete without the error for a period of time, then return. Every single time, I can immediately switch to Firefox or IE, and complete the same search without issue.
Have not had any similar issues with any other websites loading properly, and there are no issues with virus, malware, etc. Almost appears to be a DNS issue, but doesn’t make sense that it wouldn’t also effect other browsers (router is configured to use ISP’s DNS server as primary, with Google and OpenDNS as alternatives)
Just wanted to provide my own experience with the issue (and I’ll uninstall Brave before ever installing remote access software… actually might do that anyway. After 3 months of regular use, I’m getting awfully annoyed with it constantly nagging me to upgrade and to try tokens, then forcefully upgrading with so many of the same bugs. It’s so close to being a great browser, but still so quirky and rough around the edges)
