I am using the latest stable release: Brave Version 1.30.87 Chromium: 94.0.4606.71 (Official Build) (x86_64)
It is installed on macOS Big Sur 11.6.
I would like to have the ability to hide the Status Bar as I like to have as much of the browser User Interface hidden to maximise viewable screen area on my macOS monitor.
The information displayed about navigations etc. appears and disappears so rapidly I can not possibly read it at all and so it is completely useless and because of this the Status Bar is just another annoyance.
I am aware that in Vivaldi’s browser you have the option in the browser configuration to either display it or hide it.
