I need to use snap in order to install Brave and another stuff. Do you know how to do it? Because I got a warning to install Brave. Thanks in advance.
I got this message:
==> Downloading brave PKGBUILD from AUR...
x .SRCINFO
x .gitignore
x PKGBUILD

Why did you abort?
Normally one only needs to hit N here, that is unless you need to edit the PKGBUILD file for some reason.
That message is normal for yaourt and many other pacman wrappers.
Using the AUR (Arch User Repository) is always considered dangerous since the arch team does not monitor it.
However, If you would still rather use snap packages you can follow the Arch wiki here:
https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Snap

The only deviation from those instructions are that snapd, and snapd-git if you'd rather walk on the edge, have already been made available to our end users via the Manjaro Community repository. There is no need to install one of these from the AUR like Arch users have to.
