    It's a pity I can't run Brave on my old iPad mini iOS 9.3.5, would have been perfect. I have loaded it on my MBP though. I'll report back on that. Seems to me I tried it a while back and didn't like it much. Maybe it's improved.

    I have the same problem with Brave, that I have with Chrome... some intentional "pop-up windows" are too large, and I've yet to figure out how to resize them. (pic 1)

    While Firefox, and Vivaldi (Which IS Chrome based) are fine (pic 2)

    I don't know what is up with it not working for some. Strange for sure. Are you importing from Safari?
    Dennis:

    Both Jake and myself are trying to set Brave up in Mojave and importing Safari bookmarks from Safari running in Mojave. Randy didn't say which version of macOS he was running when importing bookmarks from Safari and Firefox. I noticed that you were running High Sierra at the time. I'm wondering if the problem is that Brave is not ready for Mojave?

    Anyway, I'm not sure I like it even if it works. Safari is working for me and so is Chrome.

    Here is what I get with Mojave 10.14.3 (just updated today) and Safari 12.0.3

    Nothing at all on the bookmarks bar. That is after five tries.

    As I said, when it's ready, I may try again but for now, not ready for prime time.

    Could be the issue is Mojave and Safari is different enough than it is in High Sierra. Thanks for filling me in. I will test it in a few and report back.

    I love Safari overall and keep FF and Chrome just in case.

    Just installed Brave in Mojave and nothing. No import of anything. Tried it 2x. It works on HS though on my other systems.

    Thanks Dennis for verifying what Jake and I are experiencing. I hope Randy reads this and tests it with his version of Mojave. By the way, the other browser that Randy mentioned, Slimjet, acts the same way as Brave. No go.

    Charlie, I tried one more thing, I have Chrome on the iMac with Mojave also with a few bookmarks in it. I tried selecting Chrome for import and that works. So it does not like the latest Safari in Mojave. Going to file a bug report on their site.

    I've yet to use a Web browser that was perfect in every way. (And I have about a dozen of them installed on my computer.)

    Those seeing a problem with Brave might consider filing a bug report for the benefit of everybody:

    Could the issue be with Safari, and the fact the Apple has secured it down tight, with only apps in the macOS App Store being able to access Safari?

    Interesting. Very well could be. My MBP just installed a new Safari update in High Sierra but Brave still imported the bookmarks. I also feel it's a Mojave issue and what you said fits very well.

    Well, Mojave has been updated today to 10.14.3 but Jake reports that even with the update Brave will not import Safari bookmarks. I may give Brave another try and instead import bookmarks from Chrome. My version of Chrome is up to date and has the same bookmarks as Safari.

    I posted that I installed Brave last night and had no problem importing bookmarks, but neglected to mention that I was importing them from Firefox not Safari because I don't use that on my MBP. I'm running Mojave 10.14.2 (didn't know there was an update but sometimes we are a day behind here). I too use Vivaldi, it has some unique features which work well for some tasks but Firefox is my go to because I can load all of the extensions I like to use like my password manager, Ghostery, Ad Block etc. Chrome works when Firefox won't for live streaming video and Safari is the repository of all my bookmarks over the years and yes I do use it on my old iPad because iOS 9.3.5 on an iPod mini 16Gb won't run much else successfully due to storage and CPU constraints. So I was sad to see that Brave won't run on that, needs iOS 12.
    What I would like to see is how well the security features work on Brave without the addition of ad blockers and anti tracking extensions. I see that everything available on the Chrome extension shop is available to Brave, much like Vivaldi but without running in Developer mode.
