I keep getting a popup stating that Brave was closed improperly

Description of the issue: I keep getting a popup stating that Brave was closed improperly. Why does a browser need to be closed properly? It’s not an operating system. If it needs to maintain some kind of state, it should be handling that silently in the background, and in some way that offers cleaver silent recovery if anything should go wrong!

Usually, when this happens, I am subsequently annoyed by another popup, asking me if I would like to restore tabs. It just won’t go away unless I consciously make an effort to click the button to decline… Yeah, if I haven’t indicated that I’m worried about my old tabs in about 10 or 15 seconds, then I’m never going to change my mind! (Yes! I am that busy!)

I just want to say that pulling the process out from underneath you during a system reboot is NOT AN INDICATION that the BROWSER HAS CRASHED! Can’t you guys just process signals like any other program? Maybe something like I don’t know “Oh crap! We are shutting down!! Let’s clean up gracefully RIGHT NOW!”

Expected result: Better coding best practices from the developers of Brave

Brave Version:
Version 1.34.80 Chromium: 97.0.4692.71 (Official Build) (64-bit)

Additional Information: Running on Debian 11 as a VM, under VMware Workstation. Nothing out of the ordinary, really.
