Hey guys, i wanted to give you some long term ( 5 months usage ) feedback on brave.
I got into brave because of it’s cryptocurrency and privacy aspects, but am finding that it’s a huge hassle to use because so many things are broken. Here’s the list of issues i’ve had:
youtube embeds are broken in this browser. Many of these embeds are completely unresponsive to hitting the play button, right clicking, etc. Some youtube embeds work. Other browsers do not have this issue.
Ctrl-clicking links does nothing on many web sites, so i can’t open links in another tab. This is a big problem.
The browser randomly crashes more than firefox and chrome.
Sometimes sites fail to load but don’t display any error. They just have a blank tab indefinitely.
And yes, i’ve tried turning the shields on/off, tweaking privacy settings, etc. I’m still not having a good experience.
I’m unfortunately going back to firefox for now. I really wanted to like Brave, and hope it improves in the future. Just thought i’d let you know…
PS, i have windows 7 SP1 x64 and i’m using the latest version with no plugins.
