Hello, friends. In this post, you will learn how to install Brave Web browser on CentOS 9 Stream. This is one of the best alternative web browsers you can use.
What is Brave?
One of the main features of Brave is that it is focused on speed and privacy. That’s why it includes an Ad Blocker that makes browsing more efficient and also more private.
With Brave, you can quickly import bookmarks, extensions and even saved passwords. This makes migration from other browsers almost immediate.
Being based on Chromium, we can install many extensions and thus further extend the potential of the browser.
Install Brave Web Browser on CentOS 9 Stream
Brave is not present in the official CentOS 9 Stream repositories, but we can install it from an external repository provided by the Brave developers.
So open a terminal and update the whole system
sudo dnf update
Next, install a package needed to add the repository in question
sudo dnf install dnf-plugins-core
Next, add the Brave repository
sudo dnf config-manager --add-repo https://brave-browser-rpm-release.s3.brave.com/x86_64/
In order for the repository to work, we need to add the GPG key of the repository.
sudo rpm --import https://brave-browser-rpm-release.s3.brave.com/brave-core.asc
Now, install Brave on CentOS 9 Stream by running the following command
sudo dnf install brave-browser
Then just run it from the main menu.
Brave is one of the fastest and most efficient web browsers out there. Focused on privacy, it is a suitable alternative to the well-known Firefox and Chrome.
