Software Update: Brave 1.22.66

Brave is a web browser based on Chromium. At the helm of the company behind Brave is Brendan Eich, the creator of JavaScript and one of the founders of Mozilla. Brave focuses on improving online safety and provides an alternative system for financially supporting content providers. The idea is that advertising is often a website’s biggest source of income, but intrusive advertising causes many people to use ad blockers and websites lose revenue. The developers have released version 1.22.66 and its release notes look like this:
