Update Brave to > 0.55.x
Closed, ResolvedPublic

Description

Brave has a new version out that is based on Chromium instead of their Electron fork named Muon. It has a lot of improvements to user interface, Brave payments and a lot more to come.

Already included in the repo of course and might work to update the one we already have but I don’t know how the users profile will carry over when we replace the old one. Can probably be done with: https://github.com/brave/brave-core/pull/729

It isn't really just as easy as updating to the new Braver version. The new version is based on Chromium, so I don't think the profiles will carry over. Might need to add a new package called "brave-browser" and depricate the old one...
