Brave using more RAM than Chrome and FF?

Hi,

I think that Brave have a too much RAM usage.
How can I reduce this ?

With 21 tabs opened :

@Ghosteuh,
Extensions – both built-in and 3rd party – are playing a factor here as well. It also depends on the tabs themselves and what site(s) are open in them. A lot could be at play here – how much memory are Chrome/FF using comparatively?

@Mattches

With Chrome about 1Go less (the same tabs are open, Brave count 32 threads against 28 in Chrome) :

I don’t re test with these tabs but the same.

P.S : You see, Valorant take less RAM than Brave :rofl:

EDIT 2 : when I relaunch the browser that’s insane :open_mouth: (i Have a Ryzen 2600X so I don’t understand how it’s possible that Brave takes 60% of UC).

And I just have 2 extensions

I’ve used Microsoft Edge a lot since it was Chromium based. From my rudimental but fair testing, Brave uses significantly more CPU and RAM than Edge also.

Without getting into the ins and outs, I think Microsoft have generally done a good job with Edge on desktop and mobile so far.

I’m looking at Brave as a working progress, I want to like it, but it fails in a few key areas for me at the moment. Looking forward to see how it progresses.

@Ghosteuh,
Thank you for the detailed report. I’m going to reach out to some devs to see if maybe we changed something that’s producing the additional resource usage. Also – did you try disabling HWA to test and see if that makes any difference?

No significative difference without hardware acceleration.

Well, it’s not so bad, just a little higher Chrome so that’s ok.

Also, I sent you a DM about rewards, have you seen this ?

I assume you’re looking at Brave because you don’t want to be tracked and monitored. If you’re looking at Edge as well then maybe I should assume you do want to be tracked and monitored… :wink:
