How to Open a Tor Brave Window from Command Line

By  on  

I love the Brave web browser for many reasons: ad blocking, Brave rewards, crypto integration, and even a Tor tab feature. I'll often use the Tor feature but wanted to know how I could automated opening Tor windows from command line.

To open a Brave Tor tab, you can use the following command:

open -a "Brave Browser" --args --incognito --tor

Any time I want to remotely open a Tor tab, I can do so via a shell script. Commands are such an underused but valuable utility for apps!
