Brave constantly creating new files

Description of the issue:
Brave keeps creating files about 1.5Mb in size while watching Twitch Streams.

The files are created at: \Brave-Browser\User Data\Default\Cache\Cache_Data

The files names format follows this scheme: f_… (No extension)

How can this issue be reproduced?

  1. Open Brave
  2. Go to
  3. Start watching any livestream

Expected result:

Nothing in particular, just wondering if this behavior is expected. Why would be Brave be writing files while watching a stream. Is this normal? What’s the point for it? I would think it’s something that happens in memory and not in files.
