I am using Brave Browser version 1.24.86 Chromium: 90.0.4430.212 (Official Build) (x86_64) on Catalina 10.15.5
Using a large 4K display with the browser on the right side, it’s quite annoying that new popup windows appear top-left.
This may be a bit of an over-engineered solution, but you could use an app like Keyboard Maestro (or something else similar). Create a macro that will open a new window at a certain position on the screen. Then, in System Preferences -> Keyboard -> Shortcuts -> App Shortcuts change the “New Window” menu item to a different keyboard shortcut and set your other macro to trigger with ⌘N. This way, you don’t have to change your behavior at all, but a new Brave window will open exactly where you want it. I’m sure there is other window management software that will do something similar.
