Brave build channels

Brave has a fast iterative development cycle, split into three stages. New features are typically first introduced in the Nightly channel. After we’ve polished a bit, we’ll move those features into the Beta build. Then, after final testing, we’ll merge to the Release version of Brave. This is the version that most users access on a daily basis.
