Every time I start Brave, on an Acer all in one, it immediately starts gobbling up RAM and CPU by generating multiple Brave processes.
It doesn’t matter whether I have closed individual Brave windows with/without multiple tabs, have gone to task manager and stopped each of the dozen Brave processes that ALWAYS reappear, or shut down and restart the computer.
Regardless of the method of shutting down, Brave, and the computer, this ALWAYS happens. I can start the computer, start no other processes, open Brave, and there will soon be at least a half a dozen Brave processes - some consuming outlandish amounts of memory when all that I have done is go open the browser, or gone to my own internet based, simple text html home page, or other text only websites that I created 20 years ago that have no images, and no apps…
Brave isn’t the only browser that does this - but it is really annoying that Brave is doing it because I consider that a bug not a feature.
I might be able to understand it if I was asking Brave to bring back a last session with a dozen open tabs - but this happens no matter how low the demand I make on it.
