Brave Build Channels

Brave has a fast iterative development cycle that goes through stages. New features are typically introduced in the Nightly channel and when they become more stable they move into Dev. After we’ve worked out the kinks we move them into the Beta build for a final check before merging them into the Release version of Brave that most use on a daily basis.

Brave Nightly

Brave Nightly is our testing and development version of Brave. The releases are updated every night and may contain bugs that can result in data loss.

Brave Dev

Brave Dev is our unpolished and unfinished version of Brave. Dev releases are typically very early iterations and aren’t for the faint-of-heart.

Brave Beta

Brave Beta is an early preview for new versions of Brave. This build showcases the newest advances that we’re bringing to our browser.

Brave Release

This is our official release version of Brave with new releases landing approximately every three weeks. 

Brave for Mobile
