Crypto enthusiasts, fan of the project and concept and BAT investor reporting.
I have been using the Brave browser on both my phone and browser for the last 2 monts. In that time I have made many other people enthustiastic to use the Brave browser.
Unfortunately today is the day that I’m switching back to Chrome and will not recommend using the desktop browser to other people for now. I thought it would important to let you know I decided to do so.
The main reason is that currently, the browser is not suitable for me for everyday (business) use.
The main reasons are:
Online text editing
This is my main reason for switching back currently. In the online enviroment I work in, working with Google docs, Trello and Gmail is the standard. Since the last 2 updates (if I remember correctly) the text indicator is not showing when doing online editing (example: gmail, google docs). For me; absolutely unacceptable in order to have a normal working day.
Unpredicatable behaviour of tabs
When working at client side I often have to use their network to login (intranet, etc). Currently, the behaviour of opening tabs is very unpredictable. I happens often that the Browser keeps opening tabs without stopping and I have to close down the browser itself.
Startup of browser
Startup of the browser itself takes very long sometimes (can take up to 10 seconds). Not a major blocker, but if you work in a business environment where you have to present (Skype) a lot this is pretty annoying.
Minor issue, but not as you would like; embedded Twitter videos aren’t playing (example: https://www.geenstijl.nl/).
Taking all of the above into account I decided (again; unfortunately) the time has come to deinstall the Brave browser for now and go back to Chrome. I absolute believe in the project and your team 100% and I’m sure the desktop browser will perform better over time. But for now, this is not up to standard for me to use. To be clear; I will be using the Brave browser on my mobile. This rocks; super fast and I never had any problems.
I will do another attempt of switching at the end of the year, hope its up to my standard by then.
Thought it would be good to let the above know to you guys. Thanks and keep up the good work.
