I agree with you completely in regards to the new Shields Button Menu, this is a nonsensical change.
I was hoping to see more changes of a functional nature to give us a more fine grained approach to the Shields.
Obviously the Brave developers are NOT listening to what users want or they are ignoring requests for more control over the Shields.
This is a SIGNIFICANT reduction in usability as it now takes an extra click and significant mouse move to allow scripting once on a shields up site.
This change is a backwards step and is the exact opposite of what many were hoping for.
What on earth were the developers thinking when they decide to introduce this?.
I am quite fully aware that those options are under “Advanced Controls”.
I am also aware that the Brave “flags” can be changed to disable the Brave Shields V2 and enable the Brave Shields V1,
which I have done.
The point is many users do not have the knowledge to tamper with the Brave “flags” and do not like having to go through the extra mouse clicks to see what was previously displayed via simply clicking the Brave Shields icon.
I don’t know what on earth the Brave developers are trying to do with this change it is illogical and TOTALLY UNWARRANTED.
Sure there are much more serious issues that Brave developers should give much greater priority to.
But instead we get a pointless so called feature introduced which is inconvenient to Brave users.
Most Brave users would appreciate much more control over the Brave Shields settings.
Instead of those desirable changes we get this rubbish foisted upon us.
How many people here requested this feature in these forums?
The answer is NOBODY requested this change at all.
