Kubunu 22.04 Mesa update breaks Brave version 1.51.118

Latest update on Kubuntu 22.04 Linux caused my Brave browser to act wonky, i.e. not load crucial page elements, I searched for & found a work around.

close Brave, start Brave on the command line with:

brave-browser -use-gl=egl

the issue seems to be the updated Mesa libs don’t play nice with Brave Version 1.51.118 Chromium: 113.0.5672.126 (Official Build) (64-bit)
