Brave consistently freezes after a few seconds after start, while rendering the welcome page.
No extensions, no open tabs, as I could not yet use it once.
Process activity seem to point to the two processes “Brave Browser Helper (Renderer)” and “Brave Browser Helper (GPU)”.
I also tried running from the command line with
--disable-gpu but got the same problem.
