Brave crashes constantly on iMac 27" 2011, running High Sierra 10.13.6

Description of the issue:
We installed Brave on my wife’s iMac running High Sierra - the OS can’t be upgraded due to the age of the iMac. It started to crash occasionally, now almost constantly.

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

  1. Open Twitter in Brave
  2. Try to post a tweet with an image
  3. Watch it crash with the “Aw Snap”

Actual Result (gifs and screenshots are welcome!):

Expected result:
Aw Snap.
Reproduces how often:
Was about 6 times an hour, now almost constantly
Operating System and Brave Version(See the About Brave page in the main menu):

Additional Information:
We like Brave - a lot. Would be grateful for a fix.

It’s stopped the constant crashing after taking the following actions:

  1. Applied a Mac OSX supplementary update from the App store designed to fix instability issues with 32 bit apps.

  2. Cleared the Kernal RAM, PRAM, and SMC controller on the Mac

  3. Removed the Sophos Home Antivirus

Will update if there are still random crashes.

Is that an brave/chrome extension? or standalone app?
