"The browser was built to strip online ads from websites and its maker's business model relies not only on ad blocking, but on replacing the scratched-out ads with advertisements from its own network."

"Unlike other browsers that block ads and trackers whether natively or when equipped with an ad-blocking add-on Brave has created an ad ecosystem to replace what it wipes off websites."

"That's why, claimed Brave, it not only swapped its advertisements for those originally displayed by a site, but built a crypto-currency-based system that can, theoretically at least, compensate those same websites."

Certain elements of the cache (those connected to Brave's network) cannot be cleared without ruining the browser's functionality. Here's a reference for how Brave works:

https://www.computerworld.com/article/3292619/the-brave-browser-basics-what-it-does-how-it-differs-from-rivals.html

In all honesty MS Edge for Linux (based on Chromium) properly set up is probably the most secure browser currently available for ordinary (tech challenged) users, but only specifically for Linux OS's (on Windows you have to deal with native Windows telemetry). I prefer Firefox only because I can background and hyperlink to bash scripts, something which has been absent from Chromium and originally Blink for a long time. Microsoft is the strongest advocate in the W3C for user privacy, so don't be fooled by web rhetoric. Of course that doesn't include their own telemetry if you are a Windows user. You might also be surprised to know that Bing is a more secure search engine for Linux than Google, and it is not dealing with the organizational mess that W3C and outside contracted SEOs have made of Google.

Tor may be more secure, but using Tor will eventually get you scrutinized by bad actors and many governments. I don't expect Brave to make it very far into the future, so it may be wasted effort to get you the functionality you request even if possible.

If you are used to Chromium and/or Chrome the latest improvements are in MS Edge for Linux.
If you hate MS then use Firefox.
Most of the other browser entries are just gas.

Recently installed LL 5.4 on an older Compaq Desktop.  All seems to work pretty well except the USB Webcam and Headset will quit working after about 15/30 minutes into a ZOOM call.

Any suggestions?

I have Brave, Firefox and Midori installed on my laptop. I'm able to see Midori and Firefox in Lite Tweaks but there is no brave browser. Is this because I haven't downloaded it through Synaptic Package manager?

@all please, always check and if available download cross platform software from Lite Software before heading to the Internet for a source. We test and usually bundle the necessary deps into the script for trouble free installation.
