A few things that are making Brave unusable for me in the past couple weeks:
When I close a tab, the entire browser closes. Obviously this is non-tenable and has forced me to abandon using Brave. I’d hoped this was a general bug that others would have reported and it been put on the fast track for an update, but now I’m wondering if not since it’s been a couple weeks.
File downloads still cannot be saved, only opened. For example if I want to download a PDF, or a software zip file from any website.
When I minimize the Brave browser, to work on something else on my laptop, and then when I maximize it again from its shortcut in my windows toolbar, Brave proceeds to open all tabs simultaneously. Before this started happening, if I opened the Brave browser and it opened to all of my saved tabs, it would only open/resolve/refresh the current tab. Now let’s say I have 20 tabs in the browser that I just opened. I then minimize it, and when I maximize it again all 20 tabs open (imagine 5 of these tabs are YouTube videos and they all open and start to play simultaneously. Very annoying!) Also, it makes the laptop inoperable for a couple minutes while all the tabs are being opened it is sucking down a huge amount of CPU.
I am running Windows 10
