Brave is a Chrome-based browser. I don't know about Vivaldi.
As far as accessibility is concerned, Firefox and all Chrome-based browsers support browse mode and you are using the same screen-reader interface in all these browsers. I am not saying that every form on every site will render the same way in a Chrome-based
browser or not. I haven't found any difference in general between using Chrome and Firefox browsers in working with forms. Nor have I found any differences that matter regarding accessibility.
You should have at least one Chrome and one nonChrome based browser because a browser like Firefox, which is not Chrome-based may render this or that site better. The reverse may also be true.
I use history more than a lot of people and I much prefer Firefox's implementation of history. I also use Firefox Portable which I think has advantages over installed versions of browsers which I won't go into here.

I can't say that I hate Chromium-based browsers, but the two that are my daily drivers are Vivaldi and Brave. Both are privacy focused by design and also have built-in ad-blocking and other security features. While those can sometimes prove problematic (whether
you're using a screen reader or not) with some sites, I just punt to an "unprotected browser" (usually Edge or my semi-protected Firefox) when the occasion dictates.
I touch Chrome almost never and do use Edge Dev Channel somewhat consistently. Doing what I do I have to keep a finger on the pulse of Edge, since that's what most people who don't download alternatives and need a web browser are now using, just like they
did with IE way back when. It's the default under Windows for the "less technologically sophisticated."
