I wanted to report this a a problem but it might not be a problem with Brave.
Yesterday I needed to download a PDF form from a government website. When I pressed the download button the page told me that I was not running the latest version of Adobe Acrobat and suggested I needed to download a newer version on my PC. Here’s the message that was displayed

Since I could not download the file with Brave I launched Microsoft Edge and got the same message so I then when to Windows Explorer and this time the PDF page rendered.
On my PC I’m running Adobe Acrobat Reader DC and when I click on check for updates the app says my copy is up to date. Now given the fact that Brave and Edge had the same behavior but Windows Explorer did not I found to be a bit odd since the copy of Reader I have should be the same version for any of my browsers so I thought I would report it to you to you more as an FYI. I’m running Windows 10 Pro V1903 with July patches and version 0.66.101 of Brave.
Note that I can reproduce this behavior anytime I want by going to the page below, selecting DD2527 from the list of forms on the right side of the screen and then pressing the download button. Here’s the link to the page.
