Can we maybe get some co-maintainers on this package? The upstream project moves very fast and releases frequently and it seems there is frequently a week or two lag in this package. With very little changing between most releases, maybe with a few more people with push access we can keep it more up to date.

Edit: 2018-08-13 — I'm willing to help update as a co-maintainer if you add me.

Please do me a favour and do not ever use Brave.

It is a browser specifically designed to allow fingerprinting for advertisers and I am not even kidding. Go compare how much entropy stock Brave provides compared to stock Firefox.

Nothing destructive about it. It's a wiki, after all. Duh. Stop whining about the inevitable and update the build more often.

This build has a backdoor, I believe.

Git gave me some weird errors when I committed this last time, it seems to have gone through alright but if anyone experiences issues please post a comment.

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.
