Description of the issue: I’ve been using Brave for a while now but just yesterday all of the sudden, it makes my computer unusable, maxing out disk usage @ 100% as well as very high cpu/memory usage. I first closed all my open tabs to try to reduce usage but that didn’t help, even with only 1 tab open I experience this. I’ve seen complaints about this occurring to others when using YouTube. That definitely is a problem for me but it also happens when I’m not using YouTube. I tried uninstalling/reinstalling but that didn’t help. I open Task Manager, which took a while to open because the computer is mostly unusable when Brave is open and found disk usage at or near 100%, I’ve seen memory in excess of 6GB and very high cpu utilization. I don’t experience these problems when using Firefox.
How can this issue be reproduced?
Open Brave and go to a random website and disk usage spikes to 100%, computer unusable and have to close Brave.
Brave is particularly bad with video sites whether it’s youtube, vimeo, etc but a video doesn’t necessarily have to be playing.
Expected result: get it back to not making my computer unusable
