Some news sites treat Brave as a normal browser and display half window sized "remove ad blocker" message

Yes, sometimes that works. Most of the time, I do the opposite: block scripts globally, and enable on particular page through lion if necessary – it speeds things up. If we could easily turn off images it would speed things up even more!

Some of those annoyances are implemented through styles though, and there’s no easy way to disable that in Brave.

Also notice the number of movements you have to make to “toggle scripts”: just counting the taps, it takes 3 (lion, advanced controls, block scripts), but there are movements in addition to that – the taps are not on a single spot on the screen. It all adds up over time. :frowning:

My recent suggestion for redesign of top toolbar.
