Internationalized Domain Names (IDN)

#1

Bug: The Brave browser displays punycode URL instead of UTF-8 encoded URL for IDNs.

For example: The UTF-8 URL https://कबूतर.भारत is displayed in ASCII as xn–11b4axar2g.

The browser should support UTF-8 and show the encoded characters for full fidelity. Interestingly enough, this forum is encoding and displaying UTF-8, the punycode URL I typed above. I had to shorten it to only the first part.

*This is happening on iOS on the address bar. Also noticed it in the Publishers section under verified sites.
