Brave is on a mission to fix the web by giving users a safer, faster and better browsing experience – while growing support for content creators through a new attention-based ecosystem of rewards.

Much more than a browser, Brave is a new way of thinking about how the web works.

Brave is open source, and built by a team of privacy focused, performance oriented pioneers of the web, founded by the inventor of Javascript and co-founder of Mozilla.

Join us. It’s time to fix the web together.

Let's start with a resynch of package index files from sources. Here's the command:
