Hi Brave Team,
Here are just a few suggestions after a preliminary test run of Brave. The idea is to maximize the browsing real estate and only show what is essential for users during browsing (not everyone has a phablet so maximizing real estate is important). Chrome has definitely done a good job with it and my guess only shows the essentials based on stats they have tracked over time. See a quick mock up with notes below:
Hope this can help or give you guys some new ideas!
