Brave Browser Crashes and Exits after killing process on port

Description of the issue:
When running a process, such as a node server on any port killing the process causes Brave to crash and exit, as far as I have tested it is only if the browser has a URL with this port open in a tab. For example if I run a node server on port 4200 and browse to http://localhost:4200/, killing the process on port 4200 also kills the Brave browser.

Steps to Reproduce (add as many as necessary): 1. 2. 3.

  1. Start a web server process on any port
  2. Browse to the web address hosting via the port, ex: localhost:4888
  3. Kill the process via command line lsof -nti:4888 | xargs kill -9 (osx)
  4. This will kill the process running on port 4888, and also kill the Brave browser

Actual Result (gifs and screenshots are welcome!):

Expected result:
Only the process should be killed, not the browser

Reproduces how often:
Every time I kill a process on a port, and Brave has this process open

Operating System and Brave Version(See the About Brave page in the main menu):
MacOS Mojave Version 10.14.3 (18D109)
Version 0.64.77 Chromium: 74.0.3729.169 (Official Build) (64-bit)

Additional Information:
Haven’t tested on any other OS, but I did a test comparing chrome, and chrome doesn’t crash.

Anyone have any idea? It’s still happening
