Permissions for this packages are now 700. Which means you cannot run the browser if you're not root. Am I missing something here?

This is not the place to advertise destructive alt-right websites.

Thanks for the tip, Xeno_Idaltu. I'll make sure to install the latest version of this browser now. Great search engine, an unbiased, censorship-free, untrolled equivalent of Wikipedia!

It came with "infogalactic" as a preinstalled search engine.

If this Alt-Right idiocy keeps going on people in the year 2100 will actually believe dinosaurs lived along Jesus and that White Supremacists were riding Sauropods to work.

With the last update of the licenses package MPL2 is now included (also Boost)

This package is not out of date, the latest non-beta release is v0.18.36.

Please feel free to fork this PKGBUILD and create a beta channel package if you wish.

My instructions were to minimize the time needed for you or anyone else wanting to test it.

I made the namespaces change on another computer for a quick test. 0.18.36-3 ran before and after the namespace change.

$ cat /proc/753/cmdline
/usr/lib/brave-bin/brave --no-sandbox --

$ cat /proc/5155/cmdline
/usr/lib/brave-bin/brave --

It seems to be working well. Thank you.

I mainly meant to test the check I added to the launcher. It's been updated now, please install the new version and let me know if it doesn't work out of the box. Thanks!

In case you want to test it quickly:

I just installed linux-hardened, regenerated my grub.cfg, and rebooted with the linux-hardened kernel.

For kernel.unprivileged_userns_clone=1 :
I just ran the following after booting the new kernel.
# sysctl -w kernel.unprivileged_userns_clone=1

Then I edited /usr/bin/brave to run brave without --no-sandbox:
- exec /usr/lib/brave-bin/brave --no-sandbox -- "$@"
+ exec /usr/lib/brave-bin/brave -- "$@"

Interesting, thanks for pointing that out. I don't have them enabled and admittedly I don't have time at the moment to spin up a VM to test them, but let me know if you still run into issues.

Arch's decision to not enable user namespaces by default make me wary to try to persuade people to enable it, so the message about it if it's disabled is relatively benign.

Also, build doesn't really feel like the right place to do that check and echo that warning message, but I'm not aware of a better one (except maybe an .install script, but if it's all the same I'd like to avoid that).
