I'm trying Brave on an underpowered W10 tablet/laptop I used to use for travel.  Chrome would only run a few minutes before crashing hard.  So far, all my required extensions seem to work a-ok and it is peppy. I'm impressed.

RC, I'd be curious to see how Brave compares to Chromium (the open source version of Chrome) for you on that machine.

Wikipedia says Brave is based on Chromium.  Do you think straight Chromium would be even faster/lighter?
