Software update: Brave 1.25.68

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 security and offers an alternative system for financially supporting content providers. The idea behind this is that advertising is often the biggest revenue stream of a website, but that many people use adblockers and websites lose revenue because of intrusive advertising. The developers have released version 1.25.68 and the release notes look like this:
