Brave auto unloading unused or unaccessed tabs?

Does Brave unload unused tabs? I haven’t restarted in a day or two and a lot of my tabs look as if they haven’t been loaded at all.


And some that were loaded now look as if they aren’t.

If I may speak my mind, I actually like having tabs unloaded if they aren’t used. It’s a great feature if that’s the case.

However I don’t know what tabs have been unloaded and I don’t know when things are unloaded or if it’s possible to prevent that from happening on some sites.

How hard would it be to show new features like this on blank pages? For example, in Visual Studio Code when you install a new upgrade it shows a change log to the user. That might be a lot of work or not. I would be happy with a bullet list of new items.
