Bookmarks (ctrl-shift-B) -> Import and Backup -> Export Bookmarks to HTML...

Then search around for how to import it in Brave (my guess would be around the bookmarks, but I never used that browser).

It's a Chromium fork, so right off the bat is extremely limited in terms of customizability (which is the major reason to use PM in the first place). That's before you look at their dubious way of supposedly paying you to watch ads they approve of after marketing themselves as a secure and private browser. From here-
Integration of BAT into an application involves implementing BAT Ads, a system that displays ads to users based on locally stored data. Ad targeting is performed locally, removing the need for third-party tracking
I for one would rather not use a browser that serves ads after claiming to be more secure/private than others.

Off-topic:
Wasn't Brave the one whose developers got angry when people made changes to the browser even though they were following the (open source) license?
It was discussed here but I'm having troubles finding the thread.

Wow, I guess that makes every downstream open source project, including various Linux distros, 'leeches' :roll:
