I agree. I just dropped fire fox for brave due to deplatforing talk from Mitchell Baker (Chairwoman and CEO of the Mozilla). Also add pale moon.

Yes! I'm not a fan of Chromium browsers, but I prefer to use Brave when I need to use something other than Firefox. It's not hard at all to install Brave, but it's be so much more convenient from the Software Manager.

Brave browser is not easy to install. It would be great to have it ready to install in the software repository.

This would be useful, right now you can only install via terminal, definitely in support!

Hallo,
nutze den brave-browser mit linux mint, leider stürzt der b-b andauernd ab,
ohne Vorwarnung, innerhalb von millisekunden ist er vom Bidschirm verschwunden. Es ist nicht nachvollziehbar.
Anders ist es mit Windows 10, hier läuft der brave-browser sehr stabil und schnell, unbedingt zu empfehlen.

Of course it's up to the developers, but also Mint devs can decide to include a project in the mint repositories i.e. virtualbox. There are installation instructions in the brave website but thy include terminal commands and this could scare amateurs. Since brave is an open source project based on chromium and it is gaining popularity, I think it should be included in the mint repositories.

It is up to the developers how their software is distributed and Brave maintain their own repositories. If you are not sure how to add this to your setup please ask in the forums.
