Brave and games alt-tab funkiness in win8.1


Not sure if this is a bug or not, and not really expecting any involved detective work, so maybe this is more of a feedback comment.

Recently installed Brave on my Windows 8.1 x64. I have a nvidia graphics card.

When playing DX9 and DX11 games, I can alt-tab back and forth between game and browser using Chrome with no issues. But if I try doing this with Brave, the game graphics will either crash, or change from fullscreen to windowed mode with significant lag before the game is playable again.

I tried disabling Hardware Acceleration in Brave, but still encounter the problem.


Does the browser performance goes down as well when you switch between game full screen and browser?


hm tbh, the browser tab is usually just lots of static content so it doesn’t get impacted. (game guides, wiki, etc) scrolling is fine too. just the game graphics get affected. I’ve tried forcing “windowed fullscreen” on the games which seems to … help? not enough time testing yet.
