Brave Browser Download - Not in OS 16.3 Core App Software Installed

Greetings Techies!
Firstly, I am a total newbie to Linux OS! Please be patient with me.
I want to install the Brave Browser. It is not available in the Software that was installed with the OS.

Please advise.

HEllo,

Head to Brave Browser Download | Brave and choose download for Linux.
Pick Release channel and copy/paste the commands that is shown.

This is how it's done, when updates to Brave comes, you'll recieve it also:

sudo apt install curl

sudo curl -fsSLo /usr/share/keyrings/brave-browser-archive-keyring.gpg https://brave-browser-apt-release.s3.brave.com/brave-browser-archive-keyring.gpg

echo "deb [signed-by=/usr/share/keyrings/brave-browser-archive-keyring.gpg] https://brave-browser-apt-release.s3.brave.com/ stable main"|sudo tee /etc/apt/sources.list.d/brave-browser-release.list

sudo apt update

sudo apt install brave-browser

Hi Storm,
Thanks for the speedy response! When I have copied it.
Eeeeiiiish! Where do I paste it?

You need to open the terminal App.

I don't know why Bave didn't choose to package (.deb) it as click file though. Which would make it simple for newbies.

It should look like something like this:

Search for "Brave" in the Software Store.

Thanks I have opened the Terminal app.
Do I just paste it next to where it is flashing?

Hi Hercules,
Thanks for the response. I have done a search in the Software Store
tab. No application found.

Yes... and press Enter.
Then, copy and paste the next command line... and press Enter.

Do I use the Ubuntu code?

Aye, Zorin 16 is based on Ubuntu 20.04

Thanks. Should let you know. I am running Zorin OS
in the Oracle VM box on my computer.
I have copied the first line of the code that you send me
and pasted next to the flasher in the Terminal App.
Eeeessssh! Nothing appears to enter?

Note, when typing your password, you can't see it writing in the terminal.

I'm offline now, havn't slept for 24 hours.

Enjoy the deserved nap!!!!

I'm back. Did you successfully installed Brave?

Pasted each line of the code in the Terminal and pressed enter. The system processed each line. Ended up with the processed line that says:
"Processing triggers for desktop-file-utils (0.24-1ubuntu3)...."
Back to the flasher.
What do I do next?

Can you please post all the input/output.

Hi Storm,
Your support is much appreciated!
Still dazed....trying to figure out how I did it!!!!
Brave Browser is loaded in OS.
