Description of the issue:
Once Brave is launched, it starts my cooling fan running and my laptop gets hot despite there is no load on CPU nor GPU. Only one tab with the launch page is loaded. Please, see the screenshots.
Steps to Reproduce (add as many as necessary):
Start the application and keep the HW acceleration setting ON.
Actual Result (gifs and screenshots are welcome!):
Hot Laptop, cooling fan going - the only app that starts the fan up is actually Brave, otherwise my laptop is absolutely quiet.
No load - no heat, no fan going.
Reproduces how often:
Operating System and Brave Version(See the
About Brave page in the main menu):
Win 10, Version 0.62.50 Chromium: 73.0.3683.86 (Official Build) (64-bit)
When HW acceleration is off, the problem is gone.
What background process is responsible for this strange behavior of HW acceleration?
Tested with other Chromium based browsers like SRWare Iron, Vivaldi and Chrome - none of the browsers seem to suffer from this problem.
I am aware of the fact a similar issue has been reported previously, but no one from your team has provided any valid explanation why this nasty behavior keeps happening to your browser yet.
