This is regarding the default Mac OS two-finger swipe gesture for navigating “Back”. It works flawlessly for Safari, but not for Brave. It has been this way since I discovered Brave over a year ago. It is totally random, unfortunately.
i. Operating System and version (Mac 10.13.6)
ii. Brave Version:
OS Release: 17.7.0
Update Channel: Release
OS Architecture: x64
OS Platform: macOS
Brave Sync: v1.4.2
Detailed step-by-step instructions
- i. I downloaded and installed Brave.
- ii. I navigated to multiple pages.
- iii. I tried to go “Back” to a few pages, using the two finger swipe gesture.
- iv. The page moved a bit, and the little “Back” icon in the top left area of Brave would get larger, but the page would not go back. I’ve tested this multiple times. It works randomly, but very rarely. Sometimes a tab will work fine with the swipe gesture, but then other tabs won’t at all, no matter what I try doing. Other times it will require a massive gesture to finally get the page to go back, which is just silly.
This is a dealbreaker for me. I would love to switch to Brave as my main browser, but the unreliability of this behaviour is too big of a problem.
Otherwise, I love Brave and think you guys have done an amazing job, so keep up the great work and thank you. I look forward to using Brave as my main browser very soon!
