How to start a different bravo browser using a socks proxy?

I want to start bravo that is different from the default one by using a socks proxy (The default one should not use the proxy). Is there a way to achieve this (a command line approach is appreciated)? Thanks.

@WlgTEeu3II,
Are you wanting to do this by using:

  • two different browser profiles on the same Brave installation
    or
  • Two different Brave installations – One stable build, one Beta build, for example.

I don’t want to use the 2nd approach, i.e. two Brave installations. For the 1st approach, do I have to use two brower profiles? Given that the only thing changed is just whether a socks proxy is used or not, can I just use one profile with the proxy added? Or just start the browser with a private windows (in this case the profile is not used?)? Thanks.

@WlgTEeu3II,
Gotcha. No I think you can follow the cmd instructions for Chromium here:

Should work the same in Brave – please let me know either way.

It looks working. It also has the option to make sure DNS requests are not leaked locally. But I want to test to make sure this is indeed the case. How to test that the DNS requests are indeed through the proxy? Thanks.

could test by visiting https://ipleak.net/ or https://www.top10vpn.com/do-i-leak/

Another option, probably a better option is using a VPN + smart DNS services.
