That default browser dialog was very annoying for me. Why not make option to check if Brave is your default browser like in Chrome & Firefox.

Fully agree, it's really annoying to "force" users making Brave as default browser 👎

EDIT: Looks like Brave developers considering to change:
We're working on a two step fix for this:
  1. Only asking twice #14502 on 3rd and 20th browser opens. Fix in release soon.
  2. Adding Do not show again checkbox when we show additional times. Prelim designs added.
