Right now I would suggest the new user looks at other browsers.
Brave is starting to get frustrating when dealing with large bookmark folders (takes ages to open), syncing being broken (Got brave on 3 computers and 2 android devices there is no sync on android and 1 of my desktops says it’s sync but clearly isn’t because my bookmarks are different, logins are missing etc) annoying popup constantly spamming me to enable the money giving feature which I do not trust one bit! the sluggish performance when tearing tabs off into their own windows, the issue of right mouse click and close all tabs to the right sometimes closes the tab I actually clicked on, lack of real English (from England!), its slower to load than any other browser on my systems.
So yeah, until maybe
0.20.xxx is released, I advice to not start with Brave yet or if you do, don’t commit (move all your data/bookmarks over) until it’s more developed. There are a lot of basic things that need fixing before they do work on stuff like the TouchBar for macbooks.
