Just like Chrome, if you download the Windows version of Brave Browser, you get an online installer from Brave.com, the official website. BraveBrowserSetup.exe, a 1.5 Mb file, then downloads the 64-bit or 32-bit version of the software depending on the user’s hardware. You always need the internet to use a web browser like Brave. However, some people may want the Brave’s full and offline installer, for setting it up on multiple computers. Although it is not easily accessible, Brave also has a standalone installer for Windows PCs.

Other than getting relevant information, regular users don’t get any monetary benefits in using a Browser app like Chrome. Brave brings a new concept of paying users for using their browser, at the same time, keeping their session more private and secure. I was not a big fan of Brave Browser as it blocks all kinds of ads that financially support web portals like ours. But now, this site is also a Brave publisher, after learning about Brave’s plans to help web publishers through BAT rewards.

Steps to download Brave’s full offline installer (32-bit or 64-bit)
As Brave.com doesn’t allow you to download the offline installer, we looked for alternatives. And we found the Github page of the Brave Browser that lists the latest versions of the app, in the beta, dev, and nightly release channels. Here is how to download the full installer of Brave browser 1.18.70 from the stable release section of this page.
- Note-down the latest version number of the Brave Browser for Windows, from the change-log website.
- Go to this this Github page for Brave Browser.
- Scroll and find the section for the latest stable release channel for Brave 1.18, and click on the “Assets” tab below the release notes.
- Now check for BraveBrowserStandaloneSetup.exe, and BraveBrowserStandaloneSetup32.exe links.
- Click on one of the links to download the 64-bit or 32-bit version Brave as a full offline installer.
Tip: If you want, you can save the link location (that you get above) as a note on your PC. Later, if there is a new stable release, just change the version number to download the updated Brave installer.
We are suggesting the above method as a simple alternative if we couldn’t update this page for future versions of the Brave. You can use the same Github page to download the Linux (RPM), Android (APK) and Mac (DMG) versions of the browser.
Now, if you are in a college or workplace where installations are prohibited, you can use the Brave portable edition as an alternative. Check our article on Brave portable for downloading it on 64-bit or 32-bit Windows PCs.
