I just checked

It seems that you can build brave from source.

A www-client/brave-bin should be quite easy, too.
Comment 2 anonymous 2018-11-19 11:35:29 UTC describes how to install brave-bin.

I would love to see this in portage FWIW.
Comment 4 Joe Harvell 2019-07-01 03:15:07 UTC
I would also love to see this in portage.  I was able to build from git ( branch master:

commit 8af00a618b581da0792efeb2f0773bffac3cece3 (HEAD -> master, origin/master, origin/HEAD)
Author: brave-builds <>
Date:   Sat Jun 29 12:00:12 2019 +0000

    Bump version (0.69.17)

From what I can tell it is being built differently than the www-client/chromium is using clang instead of gcc, and also the chromium ebuild is debundling to use system libraries whereas the brave build seems to be using bundled ones.
Comment 5 Andreas Thalhammer 2019-11-14 14:46:15 UTC
Brave 1.0 has been released.
Comment 6 anonymous 2021-02-07 13:39:57 UTC
I close this because there is already an overlay that has this.
Comment 7 Vitaly Zdanevich 2021-02-07 14:10:55 UTC
Overlay is good, but please add to the main Portage tree.
Comment 8 Thomas Capricelli 2021-02-12 16:04:14 UTC
Would have been great to point to the relevant overlay(s).
Comment 9 anonymous 2021-02-13 02:07:04 UTC
Find brave-overlay on
Comment 10 anonymous 2021-02-13 02:07:30 UTC
On, you can search overlays.
