Why I don’t install Brackets directly from their website ?

Instead of using Snap Store, you can optionally download Brackets package from their website here – and choose either 32bit or 64bit of .deb file depending upon your Ubuntu operating system. In order to install, you need to navigate to Downloads folder and execute sudo dpkg -i <brackets_downloaded_file>

In this manual installation process, you need to fix all the dependency for brackets by yourself which is unnecessarily consumes your time. Whereas, Snap Store makes the installation process really easy for you.
