When will Brave get it's own User Agent?

I do know a few people have asked this already but it’s been at least 1 year and we are not getting a clear answer for this question. Does brave have its own UA now or still doesn’t have its own UA? I think it’s high time, brave needs its own User-Agent and new users will look at Brave more like a chrome clone as it doesn’t even have its own User-Agent. It would also help make Brave’s market share visible to really see the growth state of the browser. It will help in so many ways!

I really hope to get an answer from the support/staff, I see similar questions being ignored (not being responded), please let me know.

I don’t think it needs one, we’re a fork of Chromium and the web rendering isn’t changed.

User agents over time will be phased out, https://www.infoq.com/news/2020/03/chrome-phasing-user-agent/

One of the things which prevents new browsers from getting their own user agent is that many sites incorrectly parse user agents, and either break or serve a degraded experience to the browsers they weren’t built for.

So it’s actually a complicated change to ship in practice. There are lots of corner cases and exceptions to handle, and the benefits are hard to quantify.

If websites detected Brave through the User Agent, Brave would die immediately.
We are talking about a browser that even disguise its fingerprint.
