Updated to Catalina 10.15.5 on 4/10. Since then, Brave browser opens just fine, but web pages either load very slowly or do not load at all. I then try to quit Brave but it is non-responsive and I end up having to force quit. I have to restart my Mac to get Brave to run. When it does run, it only works for a few hours, then webpages start hanging or refuse to load again.
I have uninstalled and re-installed Brave.
