New Tab Picture Preload


Hey guys,

I tried Brave on day #1, couldn’t use it unfortunately but I have now made the full move. Top job on how far the browser has come and I look forward to using it for the foreseeable future!

I love the feature that puts a beautiful picture up in the New Tab page. Sharp and professional. Only thing is that it loads as soon as I open a tab and appears extremely pixelated or segmented for about 4-5 seconds. It seems like something that should either stick with the prior image until a new one is fully available and then fade (similar to Chromecast), or start from a gray/blue then fade to the image when it’s downloaded in the resolution closest to the window size.

It’s such a polished browser I thought I’d take the time to suggest this extra bit of polish.

Warm regards, stay great - Jack
