I don’t think it’s so much of a bug as it is a poorly performing feature — image rendering. I have been using the website pexels.com for quite a while and have just made the switch to using Brave (love it, btw). But I noticed right away that a LOT of the darker regions of photos were HIGHLY pixelated — dramatically so. See the attached photo example (Brave on the left, Safari on the right — I’d offer one from Chrome but just recently went through the trouble of removing it and all its keystone files):
The difference is night and day. And before you say, “well Safari is Webkit and not Chromium,” Chrome (latest version) looked the same as Safari (ver 14.0).
I don’t know if anyone else has noticed this issue, but I wonder if the compression that’s being applied to the image before its rendered is causing this.
Brave version: Version 1.18.70 Chromium: 87.0.4280.101 (Official Build) (x86_64)
OS: macOS Mojave v 10.1.14
