Brave Browser Blurry

 Share

I've recently tried other browsers after using Firefox for what feels like forever. I still love FF, but the constant UI changes are getting annoying. I had mostly settled on using Brave, but it has a weird rendering issue I was hoping someone else here knows how to fix. I'd submit a bug report to Brave, but I'm not creating an account on their forum just for this one thing. Now, onto the problem!

 

The entire browser is blurry: graphics, text, everything. A great example is the landing page for this forum.

Brave rendering:

I've dealt with Chrome having blurry text before, but what intrigues me is the the blurry LTT logo as well. I've tried the many quick fixes found my searching including:

-Setting windows DPI scaling to 100%

-Run ClearType tuner

-Disable full-screen optimizations for Brave

-Disable all smoothing/anti-aliasing settings in Radeon software

-Disable hardware acceleration in Brave

 

Nothing has any effect whatsoever. It's also worth noting that it isn't an extension issue. The only extension I have now is SponsorBlock, and the blurriness was there from a fresh install.

 

Am I crazy or has anyone else ever dealt with and/or fixed this? The one post I found on Brave's forum had tons of upvotes, but the the topic was closed with no resolution.

i've used brave since like a year or two and i didn't notice the blurriness of the text and images until now
when i compared LTTforum from firefox and my main browser brave, the blurriness is noticeable
it probably has to do with the website's end for not cooperating with chrome and chromium based browser somehow
I am going to forward this issue on my brave community since you don't want to go through the hassle of creating another account for a single forum post. (going to attach this forum post's link because i don't want to claim the issue as mine since that's stealing)

Thanks so much for doing that! I know it's kind of petty, but I hate having to make an account for every-stinkin'-thing.

 

And sorry for making you aware of the blurriness and ruining it for you, but I'm glad I'm not the only one to notice. Hopefully something comes of this.

 

For what's it worth, even fonts in the settings page, for instance, are incredibly straining to look at (for me) for more than 2 seconds. 414434758_Screenshot2021-08-23123751.png.80def689b125a6690c350dfe73bf6cd9.png

Per your updates and the suggestion on the Brave forum, I just tried installing Chrome. It looks and functions exactly the same as Brave (as I expected). I also tried disabling hardware acceleration in Chrome with no changes there either.

I see nothing has come of this issue on their forum. Oh well, guess I'll be staying on Firefox!
