Can't download brave - too long to respond/timed out

I’m trying to download Brave, and have attempted on Google Chrome and Microsoft Edge. However, on both browsers when I try this, it doesn’t work.

On Chrome, it says:
This site can’t be reached took too long to respond.


  • Checking the connection
  • [Checking the proxy and the firewall]
  • [Running Windows Network Diagnostics]


In Microsoft Edge, it says:

Hmmm… cannot reach this page

Try this

I have also tried on Bing, and the same issue occurs.

I have a Windows 64-bit Lenovo Thinkpad T430.

Does anyone know what I can do to solve this issue? Thanks in advance

Just download from rather than this laptop-something address.


This is what I have been doing. It then takes a while to load and diverts to the page saying ‘too long to respond’. Not sure why :confused:

Have you managed to download the browser now?
I’ve been trying the last couple of days and I’m recieving the same messages, this is the only post I’ve seen about it. I tried firefox/edge, done it within private windows and on a different user but still recieve the same error.

Edit 05/03 - In case anyone comes across this I hotspotted off my phone to my laptop and I could download it then. Still not sure why the error occurs but that was a workaround.
