My desktop server/workstation (running -14.2 on an AMD Ryzen CPU) has
brave-browser-1.44.121-1 installed. It's stable, fast, and there are only a
very few sites it cannot fully access (but firefox can). When I download a
SBo package I can get both the build script .tar.gz and the source .rpm one
after the other.

My laptop (running -15.0 on an Intel i5 CPU) has brave-browser-1.50.121-1
installed while the SBo repo shows version 1.50.118-1 so I cannot tell you
why the downloaded version is newer than the one now listed there.

The laptop version stopped downloading the source files after the build
script tarball until I renewed the page. Can't figure out why.

Today, I tried to access github.com on the laptop and brave couldn't find
it. When I opened the firefox browser I had no issue accessing github.com.
And I have no issues accessing github.com using the brave-browser on the

I'm curious if anyone else has experienced different behaviors with
brave-brower on different hosts.
