I am trying to export my passwords from Vivaldi to the PC and Android Versions of Brave. I have enabled password import/export but importing a CSV is ineffectual.
There are many other posts regarding exporting passwords from Vivaldi and other Chrome-based browsers but most of them are closed after sixty days without an answer and answers which are provided don’t work.
Look, talented Brave Team – I love the browser. But Brave is no longer a new product and you will never get anything like a decent market share without answering questions about basic functionality – even if those answers are “you can’t do that yet in brave.”
As others have said, perhaps the only area where Vivaldi has you beat is support, for which they get 10 out of 10. Whereas you ask a question in Brave Community, here’s what happens:
- get no answer, or
- people tell you to check the nightly build areas or git hub, or
- a partial answer is provided and it is one that presumes a higher degree of technical proficiency than that the average tech consumer (even the average tech-savvy consumer) possesses.
This last problem isn’t unique to Brave – it’s endemic in tech. What seems intuitive to developers and coders is anything but, to civilians. My hunch is because everybody is so busy hustling to survive we end up ghettoized in our area of expertise, communicating mostly with colleagues who don’t require explicit instructions.
Anyhow, an update, please.
Does import passwords, etc. work or does it not?
And if Brave Community is not the official place where questions will receive answers, perhaps you could designate an official support place and name it accordingly?
Thank you for your help!
