Brave / Google Chrome

I’m curious why my Brave browser shows up as “Google Chrome”? Even here on my profile I’m using Brave yet it says Chrome… I understand it’s a relatively new browser but everywhere I look Brave is no where to be found. I don’t even have Chrome on my OS.

Hi KenCel,

Brave is based on the Chromium web browser, which is why you may see references to Chrome on your device. Can you specify where exactly Google Chrome is appearing? Or do you have a screenshot you can share?
Please also share your OS & version number by going to brave://settings/help in the address bar.

Hi Stephen,

I have seen it everywhere my browser is shown.
Mac OS Mojave (10.14.6) the latest Mac OS.
I tried to upload a screenshot but it’s in png and presently I don’t have time to convert it to a jpeg? anyway it shows here in my settings as Google Chrome… I’ll be happy to add to this in the future if that would be helpful in someway.
Thanks for your reply & have a good day!
