On my Windows device, I normally use either Brave or New Edge browsers without a problem. I have a brand new 7th gen iPad, on which I installed both browsers and can’t set either one to remember login info for various sites I visit. The Brave browser has a setting for “save logins”, and it is turned on. I don’t see a similar setting in Edge, though.

I realize this is a good question on a more appropriate forum, such as Brave.com or iPadforums.net. I’ve tried using both forums, but found difficulties in using them. So, I prefer the simplicity of rvnet and the knowledgeable folks residing here. Thanks for any assistance you can provide. Ed

This may be an Apple thing. My iMac desktop computer won't remember passwords in Chrome any more. Older versions of the operating software worked OK. Newer ones, Mojave and Catalina, do not. When I got a new iPad recently, I just gave up and started using the built-in Safari browser. It's not too bad.

I think you’ve nailed it, Tiger. I.’m experimenting with Safari right now, and it does offer to save login info like my Brave browser does in Windows. I’d like to know if there is a dark mode available for Safari. Would you know? Thanks. Ed

I have a further question. How do I hide the bookmark bar that takes up about 1/3 of the screen when I’m on a web page? Thanks again.

Just press the bookmark icon again. It will disappear.

Steve, if you mean the icon that looks like an open book, pressing it does nothing.
