The Brave for Linux is a good alternative to already known browsers, such as Chrome, Firefox, Safari or Opera.
Its main function of the browser is to maintain user privacy and block ads or replace them with non-intrusive ones. The system is called Brave
Ledger and its operation is described very well on the official blog
developers claim that this browser is 2-3 times faster, and in some cases, even 7 times faster than its main competitor (Chrome) and in addition, it is secure, ie it does not allow automatic display of spam advertisements.
However, the performance is based on removing advertisements from the browser or other scripts that make loading pages difficult.
The unwanted advertising and violation of the right to privacy by the big sites are the main targets against which Brave
I don't know how excited web publishers are that they find that brave does not come with something revolutionary, because there are already free plugins on the market that block advertisements from websites.Brave
is available for Windows, Mac, Linux, iOS and Android.
In conclusion, Brave
for Linux wants to be a fast browser compared to its competitors and has already implemented a system for blocking ads, without users installing a special plugin.
I recommend using GDebi, a dedicated program for installing Debian executable files. It is extremely lightweight and focused on installing .deb files.
$ sudo apt-get install gdebi
Installing a package with GDebi. Open the utility and File-> Open -> .deb package
Note that the utility only resolves the dependencies based on packages that are available in standard Ubuntu, and if there is a .deb package that depends on something that is not in standard Ubuntu, GDebi will not be helpful in installing the .deb file.

Brave is faster than many other browsers, it blocks advertisements when loading web pages and is safer because it blocks sites from tracking activity on the net and protects users privacy.
