Why does Brave offer no control over bandwidth hogging updates?


I have very slow internet being in the countryside and Brave updates can make my browsing experience frustratingly sluggish. Why does Brave not only download updates without informing me but also offers no control over them? Like ‘Not now! You’re killing my internet!’

To get some control I have to to find the Update process in W10 Task Manager and terminate it. It’s ridiculous that a user has to resort to these measures. I have searched Brave settings high and low and cannot find anything to control the scheduling of update downloads.

All it has to do is change the update notification banner to ‘An update is available. Would you like to download it?’ and hand that decision over to the user.
