Brave Helper process taking lot of energy on MacOS

Description of the problem
Brave Helper Process is taking up a lot of energy and CPU time - almost 89%, with only 2 websites open. The same websites opened in Safari take almost negligible energy and CPU time.

Steps to Reproduce (add as many as necessary): 1. 2. 3.
Its not easily reproducible. I quit Brave and reopened the same websites again but the energy consumption and CPU remained low. So its probably caused by some script on the site, or the series of navigation steps before it gets to the page.

Actual Result (gifs and screenshots are welcome!):
Screen shots attached. I even took a dump of the process that was hogging the CPU.

Expected result:

Reproduces how often:

Brave Version(about:brave):

Reproducible on current live release (yes/no):

Additional Information:
I have seen this issue many times, often it drains the battery and it seems to be random.

Do you have any extensions installed?
