When I go to the address bar, I type one letter in and I get a pinwheel for about 3-4 seconds and then can proceed with typing. Very much a nuisance!
If I try to type more letters quickly, I get a longer pinwheel. Happens everytime I create a new tab or edit the existing address in a tab.
Currently on OSX 10.12.6, Brave 0.25.2, computer is plenty fast =P.
