Additional Information:

Hey @eric_dk ! Welcome to the community :smiley:

Is it laggy on launch? (as in cannot get to a site) or does it take a while to get to a laggy state? If you are able to, can you please send a screenshot of the built in Task Manager in the browser? To do this, go to Menu Icon → More Tools → Task Manager.

Thank you!

It’s laggy when opening a new tab, opening a new browser and also laggy when interacting on some sites.

What do you mean by this:

“send a screenshot of the built in Task Manager in the browser? To do this, go to Menu Icon → More Tools → Task Manager.”

What is it exactly you want to see of the task manager?

This seems to be an issue with Brave stats or the sponsored crap that Brave is launching on New Window.

The new window takes forever to load.

Is Brave minining coins or something like that?
