Practically our whole life is linked to the internet. From entertainment to leisure and even work. So every time tools are realized to take advantage of all the potential of the Internet and of the navigation in the pc. However, in this same sense, many companies take advantage of the data we share on the Internet. For example, the frequency of navigation or the number of visits made. In other words, almost everything we do and this for many is morally incorrect. So to improve this, Brave a secure web browser for Linux was born. In this post, we will show you how to install it in Ubuntu 18.04 and Linux Mint 19.

Brave wants to revolutionize the way we use the Internet. For the browser, we are not products that companies can manipulate without problems. So Brave integrates many settings that block the crawlers that many sites use to get information about us. On the other hand, Brave is logically open source and the source code is available from Github.

Although it is a pretty secure web browser, it does not settle for just that and Brave is quite fast. In fact, on the project website, they boast that it is much faster than Google Chrome or Safari. So this is very interesting. It is available for Windows and MacOS too.

So, let us install it.
