Brave Browser Helper (GPU) high CPU, energy usage

Brave Browser Helper (GPU) high CPU, energy usage
mac fans activated
may be associated with system crashes if i dont quit/restart Brave soon after noting the fans and high CPU
high WindowServer CPU associated with it
it seems reliable that when i close Brave, CPU usage drops and fans turn off.

run Browser w several tabs. perhaps run chrome side-by-side.
Although Chrome is a ‘pig’ it does not show similar issues, according to Activity Monitor

Expected result: Would like some diagnostic procedures. could be related to specific content/sites i tend to keep open.

Brave Version( check About Brave):
Version 1.30.86 Chromium: 94.0.4606.61 (Official Build) (x86_64)

Additional Information:
MacBook Pro (15-inch, 2017)
2.9 GHz Quad-Core Intel Core i7
16 GB 2133 MHz LPDDR3
Intel HD Graphics 630 1536 MB
macOS Catalina 10.15.7 (19H2)

Which sites are experiencing issues? Would test in private window mode, no extensions enabled. I know some integrated graphics (intel) has issues with youtube and other video streaming services.
