Hi Brave team!
The browser is great, and is now my primary browser, but it still freezes pretty frequently. I’ve been using it for maybe a month so far, and thought that updates might help, but it still does it multiple times a day. The issues that I’m having are:
- sometimes single tabs will freeze or I will be unable to select, or even close them.
- audio will randomly stop playing on a tab; closing and reopening the tab fixes this.
- entire browser will sometimes freeze and have to be force quit.
That’s all I can think of right now, I’ll add more if they come to mind or if anything else happens. When the browser is working, it is even faster than Chrome, and all of the features so far such as adblocking, shields, and the stats on the home page are awesome, but I feel like “time saved” means nothing if I’m spending even more time restarting the browser.
I know that my 2013 MacBook Air isn’t exactly cutting edge technology anymore, but Chrome froze much less frequently. I’m hoping that the team is aware of this and there’s a fix in the works. In the meantime, if anyone has any suggestions for anything I can do on my end to mitigate the issue, please let me know. I already use as little RAM as possible and try not to open too many tabs at once - usually I only have 4 or 5. Right now, it’s Gmail, Bittrex, Facebook, this forum, and my university’s online coursework. I often also have YouTube or SoundCloud open to stream music.
