I was factually observing that Brave, unlike most other Chromium
derivatives, does not support the File System Access API. Brave being a
popular enough browser, developers and users alike were confused that,
despite Brave being based on Chromium, said API was not available. As
co-author of the linked article, I received enough questions about this
situation that I decided to mention Brave as a notable exception. If it
came across as a “rant”, this was not my intention and I apologize for that.
