  2. 1.2 GHz Quad-Core Intel Core i7
  3. 8 GB 3733 MHz LPDDR4X

Additional Information:
Please can you make this stop? This is the only tab I have open right now and Brave processes are. consuming approximately 5 gig of memory & 35% of CPU.

I have updated my MacOS to 11.5.1 in a desperate attempt to sort out this Brave problem. It just keeps freezing and decimating all my system resources. I’ve been having to use Safari

Solved. It was an extension causing the issue.

Which extension causing the issue?

AuthoredUp - a product I tried once in beta.
