This used to be without a doubt, my absolute favorite browser to use on my phone. It did everything flawlessly and I never had a single issue... Until now. For some reason, with no rhyme or reason; the app now fails to block instrusive popup ads. I literally changed nothing and it just suddenly fails to do with it once did best. It seemed like updating it fixed it, but once again I am getting super intrusive pop ups even when I set everything to be as aggressive as possible. What a letdown.

Thanks for taking the time to write in and provide feedback. Can you confirm your current Brave version? Are there certain sites that you're experiencing the pop-ups on?

Great privacy options built in from the start. Be aware if you set privacy options too high some sites (recaptcha) might see things such as a lack of history as suspicious and flag you as a potential bot, which can get annoying. There is certainly a balance to be found in the settings for daily use; the "shields up" feature is also useful if there are site usability issues.

I like the privacy features and have tried migrating to Brave as my default browser after learning Opera is now Chinese-owned. But Brave is buggy and nonfunctional at times. Often jumps back to a page/tab you just left when you try to select or edit text in another page. It randomly shuts down or closes tabs for no apparent reason. I'm going to try it a little longer but if these issues persist , I'll try another browser. Would be improved with a reader mode for pages that allow it too.
