Software update: Brave 0.57.18




Brave is a web browser based on Chromium. At the helm of the company behind Brave is Brendan Eich, the inventor of JavaScript and one of the founders of Mozilla. Brave focuses on improving online security and offers an alternative system for financial support for content providers. The idea behind this is that advertising is often the biggest source of income for a website, but that many people use adblockers and websites lose revenue due to intrusive advertisements. The developers have released Brave 0.57.18 for desktops with the following changes:
