Brave has been the default browser on my Android phone since it was installed, but I stopped using Brave on the desktop soon after it was installed because it doesn’t have a reading mode. In Safari, that feature is available from the menu under View / Show Reader. In Firefox, it’s under View / Enter Reader View.
My vision isn’t the best – I am 60+ years old. So I find the ability to display clear black type on a white background indispensable.
Since the invention of the printing press more than 500 years ago it has been recognized that the easiest reading mode is black text on a white background. Yet web designers keep putting tiny pale-grey text on a white background, or black text on a dark purple background. That’s one reason why we need browsers with a reading mode.
No, I am not interested in an extension. Firefox and Safari are able to build this feature into their browsers, so I will use those browsers unless other browsers offer the feature.
Chrome doesn’t have a reading mode, of course, because Google depends on advertising for its very existence. But what’s Brave’s excuse?
If I can’t use Brave on the desktop, I won’t be sending any money your way. Seems like a pity, though, when you spend so much time and money developing a new browser that you wouldn’t target everyone - including those of us who don’t have perfect vision.
