      Brave Build Channels

      Brave has a fast iterative development cycle that goes through stages. New features are typically introduced in the Nightly channel. 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 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

      Brave is available as a fast, free, secure web browser for your mobile devices. Complete with a built-in ad blocker that prevents tracking and provides security protection with optimized data and battery performance.
