SSH extension doesn't work

I recently switched to Brave from Chrome as I heard it’s more privacy-focused and wanted to try out the BAT system, plus it supports Chrome Extensions, as I use them a lot as a part of my daily life. A main extension I use is the SSH extension, as it allows me to remotely access servers directly in the browser. However, it doesn’t seem to work.

Description of the issue:
The Secure Shell Extension does not work.
Steps to Reproduce (add as many as necessary):

  1. Get the Secure Shell Extension
  2. SSH into any remote server by typing “ssh” into the Omnibox, or by launching the extension from the extension bar.

Actual Result (gifs and screenshots are welcome!):
Does not connect to remote server. The output is shown:

Welcome to Secure Shell Extension version 0.17.

ChangeLog/release notes:

Random Pro Tip #2: Display notifications in the browser using hterm-notify:

Loading NaCl plugin…

Expected result:
Connection to the remote server.

Reproduces how often:
Every time I’ve tried it.

Operating System and Brave Version(See the About Brave page in the main menu):
MacOS Mojave 10.14.4
Version 0.63.48 Chromium: 74.0.3729.108 (Official Build) (64-bit)

Additional Information:
It seems like the issue is with the NaCl plugin. Is this supported in Brave?


Brave doesn’t currently support NaCl, I also like the secure shell extension and have created a feature request in brave Native Client (NaCl)

Please reply/like the feature request to help it get more attention!
