Need a bigger search bar

Brave became my primary browser from the first day I downloaded it, but the only thing that makes me switch to duckduckgo’s app sometimes is the search bar, the search bar there is bigger and feels right to use, for PC brave’s search bar is perfect but for iPads or iPhones, it’s just too small, it’s hard to shift tabs without accidentally closing some. I get there are a lot of features to show, that why there is a need to make the search bar small, but to be really honest I only use those features if either a site is broken or I have to increase security for a particular website, although the number of times I have ever done this is basically less than 20 in 2 months, what can be done is probably making a clean drop down menu which shows all the important features or maybe just show the necessary features like increasing security, also one last thing (am so sorry if am being u know selfish here) I really don’t like the way a single tab covers the full top screen, like I really really prefer it to be a single block on the left side, well without making my review anymore complicated I would really like to end it, the browser is great, security is great, just the tab preview isn’t, have an amazing day/afternoon/evening/night.

Fast, Ad Block by Default, Crypto Rewards and Privacy Focus

What’s not to like right? This is hands down the fastest browser I’ve used on my Mac, iOS and Windows devices. Ads are blocked by default and it’s easy to make changes to the shields when they inadvertently block things that you want to see. Brave’s privacy focus is a huge selling point especially for people who follow tech and have noticed just how creepy the predictive algorithms are getting. One of the most interesting things is the Brave Rewards model and their solution to the current online advertising nightmare - the BAT (Basic Attention Token). Not only to they pay you for watching ads but the tech also promises an opportunity to upend the current broken system of Google-based ads and predictive marketing analytics. What they hope to do eventually is to put the power back consumer’s hands by paying us to view adds and allocating BAT to content providers based on the proportion of attention you give the site monthly. Popularity growth of the platform and additional investment and price increases for the BAT token will be required to get to a point where the system can potentially provide enough revenue to compete directly against Google etc. but Rome wasn’t built in a day. Give it a try and read up a little. I think you’ll like it too.

Amazing, but needs work still

My favorite browser. However, I'm disappointed that you cannot shuffle + repeat all songs in a Playlist folder. I would also like the ability to create a folder within a folder but I can't. Also, the Playlist is very buggy often malfunctions frequently. For example, whenever I update the Brave app, I sometimes can't delete downloaded Playlist videos anymore for some reason. And also, sometimes, the Playlist permanently changes the name of the title of the video for no reason, and other times the Playlist will refuse to delete a downloaded video. Lastly, the downloaded videos doesn't actually get backed up when doing an iTunes backup. When I do an iTunes restore, I have to spend hours downloading all of my Playlist videos again. And the Playlist videos will not download immediately unless I first open the URL link to each and every video which takes a long time, it says that the video "expired" and it's just a hassle to go through a thousand videos and open each URL link for it.

Also, the updated version of the Brave app uses 175MB of storage while the old version used 125MB, not sure why it needs that much extra space. This is more of a problem with my iPhone which is a 32GB model but in reality, there's only like 23GB of usable space, so I wish they optimized the Brave app so it doesn't eat up storage.
