**Description of the issue:
Brave has become almost unusably slow, taking 30 seconds to load certain websites. I have uploaded a video, below, that shows the situation and compares brave, brave beta and chrome and also confirms my internet is not the problem.
**Steps to Reproduce (add as many as necessary):
reinstalled, deleted cookies, disabled extensions, installed beta version (same issue)
Actual Result (gifs and screenshots are welcome!):
Here’s a video showing the problem: https://youtu.be/qsGLxeoWbzQ
Reproduces how often:
Operating System and Brave Version(See the
About Brave page in the main menu):
Windows 11 Home, 8GB Ram, 64 bit OS
Brave: Version 1.36.109 Chromium: 99.0.4844.51 (Official Build) (64-bit)
FPS - Frames per Second known to be a contributing factor with “laggy” Brave Browser performance:
I hade same issue, brave was super laggy. it was working for months but suddenly changed to super slow/laggy few days ago
My solution / fix:
Nvidia Control Panel ->3D settings → Manage 3D settings → Global settings → Max Frame rate was 1 fps, i changes that to “off”. After that Brave is fast as it used to be.
I have no idea what would changed that to 1fps
Another possible contributing factor –
ANGLE graphics backend
I found out that if you go to brave://flags and search for ANGLE graphics backend the “Default” setting is what slows down brave so much when you have hardware acceleration enabled. I switched it out to “OpenGL” and a big performance difference. The Default setting that Brave is giving everyone is probably outdated and slowing down many people.
Also try D3D11ON12 it also may work better than “OpenGL” experiment with these two values and see which one gives you better results as results may v…
Details of that flag:
Choose the graphics backend for ANGLE. The OpenGL backend is soon to be deprecated on Mac, and may contain driver bugs that are not planned to be fixed. The Metal backend is still experimental, and may contain bugs that are still being worked on. The Metal backend should be more performant, but may still be behind the OpenGL backend until fully released. – Mac

Also, there is a
Vulkan setting in some [Device Manager] video driver software, and testing that switch, has helped resolve some “Brave Browser laggy” issues.

Thanks for brainstorming but I don’t think this is my issue. It isn’t video that’s a problem since just loading
google.com takes about 30 seconds.
I turned off hardware acceleration in settings and that solved the problem
