The article states that the Brave and Opera browsers (along with MS Edge) are based on Chromium and will be affected by this proposed change.
Ad blocker developers are also concerned because the impacts of those changes will reach far beyond the Chrome browser. The MV3 spec is part of the Chromium project, an open-source web browser created by Google that forms the basis of not only Chrome but also Microsoft Edge, the privacy-focused Brave, lightweight browser Opera, and many others. Since Chromium underpins these projects, browsers that depend on it will also eventually have to migrate to the MV3 extension format, and extensions for those browsers will then no longer be able to do ad blocking using Web Request.

PJ, Brave and Opera are both chrome-like browsers and likely to support whatever Google does with Chrome, I think.
