CPU usage occasionally hangs at 100% and response is almost non-existent. Task Manager shows Brave to be the culprit, and Brave Task Manager shows “Extension:Brave” to be the culprit. Once I can finally get to the bottom of the Brave Task Manager and halt task “Extension:Brave”, the problem is immediately solved for the next 4 hours to several days.
The problem cannot be reproduced at will as far as I can tell, but happens spontaneously in the course of normal work. I tend to notice it more when attempting to paste a link into Facebook, but can’t really tell if that is anecdotal.
