vscode.dev on Brave browser: Opening Local Folders is Unsupported

This support was intentionally removed by the Brave team as they deemed it to be unsafe. See https://github.com/brave/brave-browser/issues/11407.
If you want to disregard the security concerns (do so at your own risk, of course) there is a simple workaround tucked away.
