Description of the issue:
Laggy Feel when scrolling comparing to firefox as demonstrated in the video below.


because firefox has smooth scrolling it doesn’t ruin the experience when i simultaneously reading and scrolling in a page,
but when using Brave scrolling kinda accelerates and jumps in a laggy and unconsistent way when i’m in a middle if a paragraph and have to scroll, it jumps so much that i miss the line i were and have to press mid button on mouse and smoothly go back to where i left.
this may looks so nit picking but i believe will add alot of positivity to user experience.
i tried all the settings i.e turning the hardware acceleration on/off or enabling/disabling smooth scrolling, non of em concluded to a satisfactory result.

another note is the bookmarking, in firefox you can very very easily drag a tab in drop it into a folder,
the good side of this mothod is that you can position your tab in whenever section of that folder, like top middle buttom or after a certain bookmark, but in current method of bookmarking in Brave you have to click on bookmark button and select which folder
you want to send your tab which is alot of work and when you do it this way the bookmark goes in the buttom of that folder
and doesnt give you the flexibility of positioning your bookmark in that folder.

Steps to Reproduce (add as many as necessary): 1. 2. 3.
it’s a design issue and is always there.

Actual Result (gifs and screenshots are welcome!):
demonstrated in the video.

Expected result:
smooth scrolling and fast bookmarking.

Reproduces how often:
always.

Brave Version(about:brave):
Version 0.58.18 Chromium: 71.0.3578.98 (Official Build) (64-bit)

Reproducible on current live release (yes/no):
didn’t checked the current live release.

:point_up: I actually do like that feature in Firefox - not sure I knew it was there. That said, while you can’t drag the tab itself into the bookmark folder, you can drag the URL directly into the folder. It accomplishes the same thing:

[Firefox]

[Brave (v0.58.18)]

thanks for the tip ! yeah it would be better if it worked like FireFox.

i hope devs do something about finer scrolling with mouse wheel too just like firefox.
it’s smooth when i use touchpad but jumps too much when using mouse as i described in the first post.
