November 15, 2019 — 3 Comments

Brave web browser 1.0 stable was finally released. Here’s how to install it in Ubuntu 18.04, Ubuntu 16.04, Ubuntu 19.04, and Ubuntu 19.10.

Brave is an open-source Chromium based web browser features faster page loading speed, and blocks ads and trackers by default.

Brave 1.0 was announced 2 days go. And here’s how to install it via the official apt repository.

1.) Open terminal either from application menu or by pressing Ctrl+Alt+T on keyboard. When it opens, run command to make sure curl is installed:

sudo apt install apt-transport-https curl

Type user password when it prompts (no asterisk feedback) and hit Enter.

2.) Download and add the repository key via command:

curl -s | sudo apt-key add -

3.) Add the official brave apt repository (64-bit support only):

sudo sh -c 'echo "deb [arch=amd64] $(lsb_release -sc) main" >> /etc/apt/sources.list.d/brave.list'

NOTE for Linux Mint 19.x, you have to replace $(lsb_release -sc) in the code with bionic (or xenial for Linux Mint 18.x).

4.) Finally refresh package cache and install the web browser via command:

sudo apt update && sudo apt install brave-browser


To remove the Brave web browser, run command in terminal:

sudo apt remove --autoremove brave-browser

And remove the apt repository via Software & Updates -> Other Software:
