A few weeks ago I made a post complaining about how Brave browser sucks, how I couldn't access Facebook Manager, Google Ads, Google Analytics. A lot of streaming sites don't work very well.
I got a lot of backlash with a lot of people saying "Duh, it's an ad site, it's a feature not a bug" which was frankly surprising to get such a ignorant response from the reddit community, since it's all complete BS. These "ad sites" don't show any ads, just a heavy browser app that seems to works 1 out of every 6/7 times I try it. Streaming sites/porn works sometimes, not all the time. It has nothing to do with shields, just sometimes it doesn't work on Brave.
Google Ads, Facebook Manager etc are heavy browser apps, they're not ads. And again, it works once every 5 or 6 times I go on there.
Basically, Brave is buggy as hell and not even close to Chrome. It will never compete with Chrome. Joining Chrome is their only option and that'll never happen.
I had over 3500 BAT, i've now sold it all and converted to ETH. Simple business tells you if the product sucks it's going to get nowhere. This is mozilla firefox all over again; a poor mans chromesubmitted by /u/saqademus
