|I've been using Brave browser for a solid month now, I installed it October 25th and forced myself to use it consistently for a month. Generally I'd say:|
- Feels snappier than Chrome, could very well be my imagination but I don't see it killing my laptop nor do I find I get tabs locking up, these things both happen once or twice a week with Chrome.
- Ad management in Brave is very aggressive and frequently have to "turn down shields" (a button to turn off all the blocking) - this ends up being an issue on my brokerage platform, condo management app, stuff like that but it's easy to turn off.
- Google translate support is horrendous. Chrome can real-time-translate a page, even a chat window as it's scrolling, picks up live changes in the site and translate them. tl;dr google translate in Chrome is very good.
- Credit card management in Chrome seems for some reason to be more elegant, I've yet to manage to get it to work well in Brave.
All in all I'm much happier using Brave, it seems like a faster less bloated browser that doesn't destroy my laptop, (and I feel less and less comfortable with google), so this is a good alternative for me, I don't envisage going back any time soon.
