Show complete URL in Brave browser

I’m currently playing around with the Brave browser and so far I like it a lot. However I’m not fond of the trend of hiding parts of the URL which some browsers do. I prefer simply reading the URL scheme myself instead of depending on some vague SSL lock icons or whatever. Here’s a quick tutorial for showing the complete URL bar in Brave.

Open a new tab and enter brave://flags or chrome://flags (doesn’t matter which, both work since both are based on the Chromium project).

In the filter/search bar, enter “hide”, this will bring up the relevant flags you need to edit.

Change the following flags to Disabled

Omnibox UI Hide Steady-State URL Scheme
Omnibox UI Steady-State URL Trivial Subdomains
Omnibox UI Hide Steady-State URL Path, Query and Ref

You can also use the following link shortcuts:

brave://flags/#omnibox-ui-hide-steady-state-url-scheme

brave://flags/#omnibox-ui-hide-steady-state-url-trivial-subdomains

brave://flags/#omnibox-ui-hide-steady-state-url-path-query-and-ref
