i have noticed i have been keep getting updates even after brave started showing "To get future updates… "message for Win 8.1 so i believe i will get updates until chromium 110 is released.
so after giving a lot of thought, i have decided to continue using win 8.1 even if brave axes support for it… I Simply can’t give up this fastest OS for win 10 or 11
Before getting into my 20 requests, first i’d like to ask you to make the brave shields filter list’s database updates to be independent from the “Brave Browser updates” so that even if the brave browser is not getting “Feature” based updates, shields and its blacklisted trackers, urls will be keep getting blocked using the database updates of shields
1. Easy New tab opener
currently if i had to open link in a new tab, i had to right click and select open link in a new tab, there are also extensions offering double click to open link in a new tab
but i want to make it super easier… holding a link and right swiping it must be equivalent to commanding the link to be opened in a new tab and keep the current tab in focus… while i perform the action of what i do in the above gif, i am leaving the current tab and going to the tab of the link which has been swiped, i want the link to be opened in background not in foreground, the browser should not get me focus to the link which has been swiped right, i should stay in the current tab.
2. Frozen links → Open new tab links as Frozen link
Improvement for the previous 1st request, Sometimes we might open 20 new tab links and wouldn’t check all of it on the same session, some links might be checked after a few days so while the links are getting opened in a new tab, keep that tab link frozen and load the page fully only while that tab gets to focus
3. Link Queuer
Sometimes we need to open 10+ links and opening the links will also end up consuming system resources so just as the above request 1, Now we can left swipe the link to the vertical tabs area to queue it…
Alright , if left swipe feels weird, lets make right swipe more customizable so it works for both…
Now imagine these numbers as “inches”
10 20 30
so if i swipe right like for less than 20 inches from the link position, the link gets opened in a new tab… However, if i swipe for more than 20 inches and drag it all the way to right screen end area, the link should be queued.
to this area
Bookmarks should be treated as favorites where they must be saved to retrieved later, the queued links with a new right “Queue bar” should be treated as “temp worker” where we essentially feel the need to check up those link but they aren’t necessarily that important… the right side placed queue bar should also have “Live synchronization” where as soon as users add a link to the queue bar, brave should create a “hidden bookmarks folder” and store these links as bookmarks temporarily, so its like if a user adds a new link to the Queue bar, the link gets stored (added) in the hidden bookmark folder created by brave and if a user removes the link from queue bar, the brave browser AI will automatically remove the “removed queue link” from that hidden bookmark folder as well.
Users should also have the option to bulk add all of the “Queued links” to either a specific folder or to “other bookmarks” folder
Maybe you can add a option here on the left pane like “Queuing” and offer a setting like
Save queued links to the following Bookmark folder
other bookmarks brave://bookmarks/?id=2 (change button on the right)
Also check this out (as new improved idea has been updated)
4. Startup Behaviour
Add a new setting here called “Startup behavior” by offering two new options called “default” which does what browser currently does and a new option called “Force reload all open tabs”
so if a user selects “Force reload all open tabs”, all of the tabs will be reloaded at startup of brave browser.

5. Independent “Extensions” zoom setting
For bigger screen displays, this is a much needed feature while we set windows scaling to 100% smaller to bring(see) more details at a time all at once.
so allow us to set custom zoom levels for each and every extension by allowing me to set a zoom level so the new setting here would be something like
Zoom Level default (follows browser’s page zoom value as defined on brave://settings/appearance)
there should be a “drop down” arrow on default so while we click that down arrow, we can set custom zoom values ranging from 100% to 300%.

6. Blocking Notification requests
Most websites starts to ask notification request where brave asks “Allow” or “Block”… an option to always block should be added.
7. Notification about Brave sync code change
So it seems like Brave sync code’s last word changes every now and then defeating the purpose of sync in case of BSOD and new OS gets installed and now user dont have the updated code… please give exact date on when a new code will be updated each month or allow me to pair my brave community account to sync, so while a new sync code gets added, brave browser will automatically send the code to my brave community message inbox.
8. CPU TEMP check and Frost AI
Currently if we need to check the CPU temperature, we need a separate app, make browser new tab page to also show my CPU temperature and allow us to froze tabs automatically if CPU temp exceeds 70c or higher (of course we can whitelist sites so they never get frosted)
9. Brave Display control panel.
Ability to reduce brightness, increase contrast, saturation in real time would be great… the changes should also be visible in picture in picture mode… it shouldn’t feel like im inverting colors… We Should be able to save different profiles and people should be able to set the display values to be EITHER Global or for each site to be different values(where they can set a new setting as they wish).
check out this article which i made on vlc forum to know more for why i want a feature like this
10. Bottom download bar customization
currently it shows combo of file size and time left… But i want combo of file size and download speed.
Miscellaneous request that i am wishing that you will fulfill before Jan 10,2023
if you could make my brave browser experience super and save time, Many thanks
