This is actually being worked on right now. I don't yet have a clear
timeline for a production release, but we should have something working
internally for testing in a couple of weeks.

Brave only has partitioned, ephemeral 3rd party cookie storage -- and it
does not expose the Storage Access API. This makes it impossible to work
with the integrated iframe approach that CHAPI uses. We're implementing
a popup window flow (similar to how "OAuth/OIDC/Login with..." works on
sites like twitter.com) to address this.
