Bad freezing bug at launch.
I switched to nightly, because of a known problem the release has, that the nightly didn’t.
It was great for a while, but the bug is now in the last few nightly releases.
I have reported it in the help feedback menu, but a new release today, and not fixed.
At launch, Brave hangs/freezes up for a full minute or two.
I am unable to select and use the address bar, or favorites in the toolbar.
I can access the menu items, and open and close browser windows, but they remain locked up.
After quite a bit of time, it finally becomes usable.
