Re: browser connection error?

browser connection error?

I got a notice from Dropbox that my account had been opened in Windows Chrome at about the same time I opened my account in Brave browser. Would the browser information be in error showing Windows Chrome if I use Brave browser?

Brave is based on Chromium, the same engine that Chrome uses. In fact, the new Edge is as well. I wouldn't be surprised if they appear as Chrome during browser detection.
