Brave slow startup



I just came across Brave after I read that it implemented private tabs with Tor. I like it so far and I’d actually like to use it as a default browser.

However, there is one issue that is preventing me from doing so and that is the very slow startup of the browser. When I click the Brave icon, it takes several seconds for the browser to start opening and by the time that happens, I can open Chrome and even reach the site that I want to reach and Brave wouldn’t even be open yet. Performance is good once Brave is open and running, however I did find random glitches while scrolling web pages that I can’t reproduce now.

I’m running Windows 10 64-bit. Here’s the info from about:brave :

Brave: 0.23.19

It would be great if this issue gets looked at.
