Does Brave do page caching?

Not sure if this is chromium related or Brave specific, but is it possible to cache pages like Firefox and Edge do?

If I do a search, click a link, and press the back button in Firefox, there is no page reload; it must use a cached page. Fast and user friendly, makes browsing feel very snappy. Brave doesn’t seem to do this; it reloads the page every time. Tested with Edge, the page load button does spin, but very briefly- probably about 100ms. Brave takes a solid 1000ms both ways.
