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.

Brave is an open-source web browser based on Chromium, created by Brave Software company in 2016, founded by Mozilla Project co-founder and JavaScript creator Brendan Eich.

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.
