+1 to this! Not a flatpak, not a snap! I use it by by adding a PPA, but I'd rather not use a PPA for such awesome software

It's my browser of choice, unfortunately the only option to install in linux mint is via terminal (adding repository). Other linux distros have it in repos or in their own browser selection tools.

Absolutely! Brave is the best browser. However, you can just use their own release channel direct repository and install via command in terminal.

NOT impressed with "Brave Browser" One, They got hacked a few years back, my email was snagged and I was NEVER notified! The only way I even found out was through one of those online scanners I THINK it was but not positive!!!
My second issue was the CONSTANT wanting to update, then it was never just a few bytes noo it had to download the entire browser every single time it "updated" or at least I THINK that was it as it downloaded about 76 Mb every single time. Always the exact same amount.
Three, their profit scheme! What a total rip off!! It HURT the advertisers far more than it helped them but mostly it made Brave LOTS of money and not crap for the people!!
Four: constant headache using it, freezing etc...
Fifth It was Google... You can paint a pig, sure it will look better but it's still a pig! Google is right up there in the 5 most evil entities on the planet personally, now that Hitlers dead I think google is second or third at least, right after Soros, the Vanderbilt's or perhaps the The Illuminati but oh wait.. Those are all "secret" orgs so we don't really know their true evils, however googles evils are all out in the open for the world to see.. At lest those evils they don't care that we know about! And there are plenty of them!
I guess you might have noticed I HATE all things GOOGLE! It's a true pandemic all on its own!

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!

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.
