Brave is using 15% cpu consistently, even when closed and opened again with no tabs

in the past couple of hours brave has been using 15% cpu consistently. when i go to task manager in brave it says that the process using so much cpu is “browser”. i have been using brave since feb 2020 and it has only used 1-3% in the past. no other browser on my computer does this, i have tried firefox and edge. i only have 4 extension that i have all disabled when trying to find the issue.
