Brave Beta branch relative to Stable


Description of the issue:
This is a question regarding the relationship between development of Brave Beta and the stable, GA version. More specifically, I don’t understand how the two are related in terms of functionality. I would have thought that the Beta version would be a superset of the Stable version as new features are added onto the “production” release. Also, why aren’t the two more closely aligned in terms of look and feel?

Hi @cbrevard,

Brave 0.25.x is an old version that has been replaced by the new Brave 0.59.x.

You should be asked to upgrade from 0.25.x to 0.59.x. If you not get the notification upgrade, you can download the new version from

You don’t need to uninstall the old version. You can run it in parallel then import your browser data from prev. Brave to avoid data lost.

More about importing data

You also can migrate your wallet (if you have any)




That explains a lot. Thanks for the FYI. The production version just prompted me to download an update.
