In this guide, we are going through the step by step process of installing Brave browser in Ubuntu 22.04.

So what is Brave browser?

Brave is a free and open-source web browser developed by Brave Software, Inc. based on the Chromium web browser, a Google-sponsored free and open-source web browser.. Brave is a privacy-focused browser, which distinguishes itself from other browsers by automatically blocking online advertisements and website trackers in its default settings.

Brave browser boasts in its site to be 3x faster than Chrome and to stop online surveillance, loads content faster, and uses 35% less battery.

Normal users normally wonder whether Brave browser is safe. The Brave browser is safe. While initially attracting tech enthusiasts to scrutinize the open-source code, it’s now a safe and comfortable choice for average users. Brave is a complete replacement for Google Chrome and Microsoft Edge.
