I mentioned this once in the VPNs topic I created where I mentioned it is somewhat rare for people in general to engage in discussions and have proper answers with issues raised, which lets be honest will probably disappear as the number of users rise and users become more and more demanding. I happen to be one of them.
That being said The fundamental issue I raised in the VPN topic was a situation of trust and that it’s great that finally there will be a browser where by those particular extensions will work and may very well recommend Brave than any other browser because one of the providers once told me there product worked or moreover was best used in Chrome than Firefox. It made sense because they always push the updates for Chrome first and for FF much later.
I bring this up because Brave being based on Chromium and the fact that the proprietary extension holders are well experienced around this framework, I think its good idea that here on the community.brave page, the original developers of the extensions/addons are given a title of their own in the ‘Category’ section.
The section should consist of all the extensions available similar to the webstore but but similar solutions packed together (segregated by a line of some sort) from different extensions.
I think firstly it should start off as a way of users up voting necessary extensions because there’s quite a lot of extensions that users want and alex told me, 'it’s really just a function of priority vs user signal & time/resources available…In enabling a particular extension, there is some checking to make sure it doesn’t compromise user security or privacy.'
So checking all those requests would take an awful lot of time and what users want most should be applied first because I doubt you’ll just input hem all together in one day.
Finally, having veered off the topic slightly, later on the purpose of this category would be for yourselves, the developers and allowing us to scrutinize any particular extension in a neat format so they’re solutions function better on Brave than any other browser.
