Install brave browser

if you uses the script to install,just delette the directory the script created。

@Adrian_K, Yes. I have deleted /opt/brave.com directory. That’s the path it is installed.

@hong.wei.phang, by the way the script doesn’t work at all. It has multiple dependencies to be resolved. Please run it in your system and make sure it works and kindly share the updated script as I am not good at that stuff. :slight_smile:

The script should be working as I use it daily. Can you tell me more details?

Done.

For nightly it worked because most of the times the latest release in https://github.com/brave/brave-browser/releases page is nightly release.

I think this thread has already become very long. Thank you very much for the script anyway.

I updated my response with the procedures for uninstalling both browsers. :smile:

I also replaced the wget command with curl, since the latter natively supports proxies and it’s already installed out of the box.
