Alternative browser for Devuan/Debian - Brave

Hello:

Has anyone used/installed this browser?

https://brave-browser.readthedocs.io/en … html#linux

I cannot find it in the Devuan repos and there does not seem to be a *.deb file available either.

Thanks in advance.

A.

It is not totally open source software i dont believe, that is why you will not find it on Devuan or Debian.

Indeed ...


While users generally don’t expect much privacy from browsers like Google Chrome, the Brave browser promised to do better. By whitelisting the domains of some of the biggest data collectors on the internet, they have lost the trust of a large number of users and will need to work hard to get it back.

For compensation of lost revenue for websites, Brave uses Brave Payments. Users can sell an amount of money to the Brave browser in Bitcoin, Litecoin and Ethereum. The Brave browser’s Bitcoin funding is transferred into its native cryptocurrency called Basic Attention Tokens (BAT), which can be distributed to websites visited by the user.

Thank you very much for the heads-up.
This is one browser that I won't be using.

Cheers,

A.
