Just updated to latest version. As soon as I press ctrl-T to open a new tab and type 1 letter of my domain name in the address bar, the entire browser locks up and I have to end task.
Edit: Out of curiousity, I left it alone “crashed”. After waiting for some time, eventually the address history flashes and you can type again.
Edit 2: After about a half hour of operating like this, it seems to have cleared up. Closing and restarting the browser restarts this whole process. Maybe some weird startup glitch?
The last two builds have also had some type of memory leak where if you open a new window (ctrl-N) and close it, and then do it again, and then close it (I work this way on projects), eventually brave is using 3GB or so of memory and will no longer open new windows forcing an end task and restart after you do so. At the time this is occurring my 64 bit Windows 7 OS has many GB of free memory available.
Quality going down from original builds. Would prefer less builds and higher quality please.
