I've been using the almighty Brave Browser for over a year at this point.
I started off not really trusting it, to absolutely falling for all its features. Now I have it on my phone, laptop and desktop, and if they bring it out for any other devices I have, you can be guaranteed I'd have it there.
However, as much as I love Brave and the Brave browser, there are a few things I wish they changed about the browser. These are just my personal opinions, and I hope someone from Brave sees this and maybe does something about it.
Ok. Let's get to the things I wish were changed.
1. The general outlook of the browser
While I like how the browser currently looks, I have to admit it looks a little cramped on mobile.
I mostly browse the internet on my desktop or laptop, but when I'm on the train or taking an Uber home, i might want to check the price of Bitcoin or some recent crypto news.
I have found that doing this on Chrome is more comfortable, and although I no longer use Chrome, this is generally the case.
Also, the Browser looks a lot like Chrome. I get that it is built with Chromium, so it can be easier for users switching from Chrome to actually use the browser, but I really wish it had its own "vibe" so you don't feel like you're in a different colored Chrome everytime you use it.
2. Integration with Uphold
Don't get me wrong. Uphold is a great wallet and all. But Brave should have let us withdraw our earnings through our custom wallets.
It makes the privacy of the Brave browser seem a bit contradictory in my opinion. It really sucks that we need KYC to even be able to set up withdrawals, when most of us probably won't be withdrawing more than $1000 at a go.
They should have made KYC necessary for big content creators who get massive number of tips, and not just blindly for everyone.
Those are just a few things I wish Brave had changed with the Browser. I hope at least one of these features gets implemented soon.
Thanks for reading guys.
