As of writing this, Intel’s Clear Linux is new to Linux desktop OS market. So all the packages might not be available for the OS yet.

Google Chrome and Brave browser are not available in their software repositories and it’s hard to find official instructions to install these browsers.

So, I have written below the simplified version of the official forum thread discussion about the same topic on how to install Chrome and Brave browsers. Even though I prefer Brave to Chrome, I have given instructions on how to install both.
