As you see on the image above, that feature is coming from Firefox and it’s very useful : I can see if I have new emails in an instant without manually checkup. I wonder if Brave have the same kind of feature. I’m currently looking for this but I didn’t find anything so far. Maybe there is a special setting in Brave or a specific extension ?
hope your not coming here for the bat rewards , seems they have no idea how to keep their obligation to their users as you wont be paid every month, they will only pay out a portion of what you earned, when they do. just like with everything crypto it just seems soo scammy…
Per blue dot, I will snip when I get one. lol I have minimal notifications set for each site I allow. Monitoring reddit now but so far nothing yet. I don’t want to change my settings to allow more, I have this unreasonable fear of changing anything I have that’s working in case I “break” something, especially with Brave…
Notifications & Actions
Note: I had to turn the window notifications on to receive Brave notification ads. It was the only way they would work. But, I only get Brave ad notifications unless I allow other sites to send notifications. Usually, I will then set to allow notifications only until I close the site. If it doesn’t prompt me, I will clear the permission in brave settings.
Of course, none of this may actually have anything to do with the blue dot… which I still haven’t received again… wish I had thought to take a snip yesterday! lol
BUT, really weird thing is, popped when I had Firefox open at same time… didn’t get with just Brave open even though I had it opened for a couple hours… I know, that can’t happen. Been told this several times by mod. lol
Hopefully JimB1 can help you out! I’ve given my two cents (or less) worth. Initially, just wanted to let you know I had the blue dot and ended up writing a novel. Going to keep tracking this to see how it all turns out.
It seems “You” that come here for BAT to me. You clearly didn’t read their notice aren’t you?
The payment is still in process.
For most of us, I think we came for ad blocking, security and privacy feature that Brave’s offer to its users. BAT rewards is additional (although it’s one of Brave’s feature) since we are not going to be rich from earning it from Brave Browser. The ad rewards is for users to keep & to tip the content creator since Brave has a different approach for their business model.
If you’re using Brave for the reward only, maybe Brave’s not for you. Because you won’t get much from it.
I wonder if Chrom* thinking was that this should be a function of OS notifications, or numeric counters in the pinned tab. I’m with you, I think the blue dot is preferable, as I have no desire to remember what my # of unread messages is; but personally I’ve gotten by fine with OS notifications. If you do try the Blue Dot Replacement extension, please let us know how you like it!
