How to install Brave Browser on Ubuntu 18.04

Today we look at how to install Brave Browser on Ubuntu 18.04.  Brace is an open source browser, and as most browsers based on Chromium Browser.  A person can also use all of Chrome's extensions in Brave and they are working on something unique which is called Brave Rewards which is a work in process and a good adblocker and more.  About a month or two ago I started to use Brave as my default browser and happy with it.

There are two ways to install Brave.  As shown in the video, a person can use Snap to install it easily or via the terminal.  A snap is easy but I realized, in my own experience that Brave is better supported via the terminal with a few commands which a person just need to copy/paste into a terminal.  In the commands section, I will give commands for both ways.

Command Used:
1) Install with Snap:
sudo apt install brave

About the Snap:

2) Install with the Terminal:
sudo apt install curl apt-transport-https

curl -s | sudo apt-key add -

echo "deb [arch=amd64] `lsb_release -sc` main" | sudo tee /etc/apt/sources.list.d/brave-browser-release-`lsb_release -sc`.list

sudo apt update

sudo apt install brave-browser brave-keyring
