Unable to opwn Brave browser on my desktop. Running mac 10.9.5 Maverick


#1

Hello. `i have downloaded the version offered to me from the website. I open the dmg and it quits immediately, not opening at all. I like running Maverick. It’s the most stable mac operating system and I have no intention of upgrading until I have too. I wanted to support this new browser, tired of constant advertising. But please tell me how?

Kind regards

I am in the same spot. What gives, Brave?
Why push us to use the same location-enabled spybot OS upgrade if you really want to protect us?

Technical advice other than “upgrade”, please. Why do you disable the Brave I already have? How? Was it built to crash after a certain update? Is it sending and receiving signals from you to let you know I have not updated to version 20?
That means your technology is invasive, and you are just another Big Brother looming on the horizon.

Hi @skweez @Tartarus

We’re currently moving toward the rewrite of Brave which includes using Chromium’s native UI. We’ve started putting builds out there for users to take a look at the re-write, which you can find here: https://brave.com/download-dev/

You’re welcome to try out the re-write now if you’d like and play around with it a bit - see if you have the same issue. However, there are some things to be aware of:
• it’s still very early and many features are missing (Tor, Sync, functional Brave Payments just to name a few)
• it crashes, more often than we’d all like right now
• some sites have issues with web compatibility
• these are not official dev channel builds however they will be automatically updated as new versions are released

There’s more, but that’s the big stuff that I can think of at the moment. It’s very much “use at your own risk” right now and not really suited to be a daily driver, but it will give you a peek into what’s coming. You may also enjoy this reddit post from our CTO: https://www.reddit.com/r/BATProject/comments/9dkbpi/the_rewrite_of_brave_named_brave_core_is/

If you do decide to try our new version out, please let us know if you find any issues in a new thread, you can write one up here: https://community.brave.com/c/developer-builds

Best,
Lauren
