Unable to “Open in new tab”

Description of the issue:

Tapping and holding on a link on Brave iOS, there’s no option to open in new tab - that’s a killer!!! If you’re midway through a long article, or just want to open a bunch of stuff (such as Brave Community items), its only possible to do in the same tab (or copy and paste, which is around 6 taps - not nice UX).

Steps to Reproduce (add as many as necessary):

  1. Open a webpage with a link on it
  2. Tap and hold
  3. Be unable to open in a new tab

Actual Result (gifs and screenshots are welcome!):

No option to open in a new tab

Expected result:

There should be an option to ”Open in New Tab”

Reproduces how often:

Every time :sob:
