How do I print to a searchable pdf file?

When I print to a pdf file from Brave, the resulting file is not searchable. When I print the exact same page to pdf from Chrome, it is searchable.

Is this evil goo gle, or is there some setting I need to change?

True, PDFs are not searchable. It doesn’t depend on Google and you don’t have to change anything. I agree it’s a feature that Brave developers should add.
