How to safely remove / uninstall one of the Braves out of Linux?

Description of the issue:

Expected result:
After removing / uninstalling the Muon and beta version of Brave effectively including all data, it should just leave the latest release of Brave.

Additional Information:
Perhaps it may be a good idea to seek advice from a couple of Linux distro experts as the commands for removal differ across the multiple Linux distributions.

Debian/Ubuntu users can use:

rm -rf ~/.config/BraveSoftware/Brave-Browser/

sudo apt remove brave-browser-beta
sudo apt purge brave-browser-beta
rm -rf ~/.config/BraveSoftware/Brave-Browser-Beta/

sudo apt remove brave-browser-dev
sudo apt purge brave-browser-dev

Inspired me to get a Support doc for this question drawn up.
Thanks for asking.


For OpenSuse could you also possibly include in the doc the command to view the list of software so the correct item/s can be seen by the user so it is correctly entered (brave-muon brave-beta).

I really should know this. Earlier in the year I tried uninstalling and installing the Muon version once and the commands didn’t seems to effectively remove/erase all the data during uninstall as after the install all previous data remained.
