Upgrade to the next generation of Brave browser (brave-core) #4
Some caveats to note before an upgrade to the next generation of Brave browser.
Passwords are not saved
Brave (as Chromium) stores passwords in such a way that they are encrypted in a way tied to current PC. While the passwords are not kept or left behind on the PC itself, they won't be retrievable when you move to a new PC.
Certificates not portable
Brave (as Chromium) has no certificate manager. It uses Windows certificates manager. So, any certificates you install through the Brave interface are stored on the current local machine and will not be portable.
Some settings and extensions are locked per machine
Brave (as Chromium) locks specific settings to a given PC. This behavior is by design by the Chromium team. If you would like this changed, please open an issue on the brave-core repository. A suggested workaround is to sign in to Brave Safe Storage to restore all settings and extensions but this is not available on the current release of Brave.
And as stipulated in this thread :
These issues are specific to Brave due to Chromium's design and not something we can work around without fixes to brave-core.
Import profile data from Muon
The current stable release (0.55) cannot handle migration of profile data from Muon but there is a work in progress. See brave/brave-core#729

Not sure if this was directed to me, but I never said @crazy-max is not knowledgeable of what he/she does, I only wanted to point that Iridium has an official portable build, so maybe they have dealt with this in some way, sorry if it sounded like anything else.
