So, I was at work when Core installed on my work PC. IMMEDIATELY hated it. Frankly, it’s a reskinned Chrome. Ugly, buggy, and no faster than Muon in real world use. I attempted to go back to the old version by uninstalling Core and renaming the shortcuts, but found that the original Brave install was broken beyond repair. So brave is basically Done on my work PC. Just great.
Really guys, if I wanted Chrome, I would have installed Chrome.
So, I got home, and I had left the browser running. It was telling me to close the browser to update. So instead of closing the browser I disabled “update.exe” and then cleared the Windows Temp folder hoping that would stop the update. I was wrong. Upon closing and reopening Brave, I found myself presented with the hideous new interface. Argh!
All I want to to go FULLY back to Muon. NOT some greyed out icon where upon opening it I get a huge “USE OUR NEW VERSION!” splash. Just good old Muon, as it was prior to the update. I realize that this means that I won’t get updates, but honestly, I would prefer that over the new version. Sorry, I’m just not interested in Yet Another Chrome Clone.
So, how do I just “go back” to the last version of Muon? Do I need to reinstall? If so, how do I back up my existing settings? Is there a location where I can download the old installer so I can archive it?
