Brave QA could use your help with checking our latest build of 0.13.0.
It is not a release candidate (a higher quality build which has the potential to be given to end users), so we truly do expect you to be able find bugs.
You can find the installer here: https://github.com/brave/browser-laptop/releases/tag/v0.13.0dev-Preview7
Just to warn again, this is kinda experimental, so it would be wise to save your data off in a backup.
For OS X users, you can find your data in ~/Library/Application Support/brave
For Windows, %appdata%/brave
For Linux, ~/.config/brave
You’ll want to just copy the brave folder wholesale and keep it in a safe place.
If you find issues, it would be super helpful to reply here with:
Your Operating System and version.
A quick summary of the issue (10 words or less).
Step-by-step instructions for others to try so they can reproduce the issue.
Screenshots or recordings are also super useful.
If you want to post the issue in github instead, please put ‘cc: @alexwykoff’ in a comment so I can know to triage it.
This has some pretty big under-the-covers changes, so we’re particularly concerned with:
extensions (like password managers, pdf, pocket, etc),
performance (page load, rendering, JS), and
web compatibility (does it still work for your favorite sites like prior versions, or did something break. if it didn’t work previously, please open a separate issue instead of replying here)
It would be an understatement to say that your help is appreciated!
Thanks in advance,
Alex - QA Lead
