I don’t remember where I first heard about Brave, but I think it was from a link posted in a forum I was reading. Anyway, I downloaded the browser several months ago and played around with it for a while. I had been using Firefox for a number of years because I liked some of their add-ons to increase privacy and cut out common annoyances on web pages, and I ended up going back to it because it was more familiar.
Now they have broken something so I can no longer hear sound in videos or podcasts. Their only solution is for me to install a different sound server on my system from the one I am currently using. This I will not do, because I already tried it, and it causes problems for some of my other applications. Besides, I should not have to change the applications and preferences on my personal computer just to make a web browser work properly.
I have now been watching videos with Brave and will change it to be my default browser, only going back to Firefox if I find something that doesn’t work here. So far it is looking good.
