Oddly I don't hear a lot of things like this in the browser space. "Can it do X?" seems to have been wholly replaced by questions of privacy, speed, resource usage.
Vivaldi is pretty much the only browser that pushes to have as many features as possible. Since features are what matters the most to me, my desktop browser choice is a no-brainer.

(On mobile features matter much less to me because I only use my phone for browsing when I don't have access to my PC. I use Firefox Preview there.)

[...] As such, the thing I've been caring about recently is mature research or search-and-replace tools with term highlighting and regex. Anything in that space?
In the browser? I don't think so. I mean, not even in desktop Chrome/Firefox without an extension.

As an app in general:
https://f-droid.org/en/packages/jp.sblo.pandora.aGrep/ (regex search)
https://f-droid.org/en/packages/com.jecelyin.editor/ (text editor with in page regex replace and batch search and replace)
Also, this:
https://play.google.com/store/apps/deta ... dsen.agrep

It supports multi-step (=multiple search/replace statements; executed sequentially) regex replace operations in one (/path/to/folder/file) or multiple (/path/to/folder/*) files.

Just don't forget to enable the storage permission manually in the settings because it won't prompt you.
