Brave is an open source privacy-focused web browser based on Chrome. This tag should only be used when the problem is found or is repeatable in the desktop version of the browser. Android and iOS versions are off-topic on Super User. When writing questions you should state the version of the browser you are using and, if relevant, tag the question with your operating system.
