Does brave run 27 process in background?

Does brave run 27 processes in the background? Or something wrong with my browser? It is also consuming more battery.

Hi @johnvs,
It’s different for each user. More or less, yes. Brave do use multiple processes. One process for main thread, another for tabs, extension, etc. You can check it yourself by hit Shift + Exc using your keyboard. It’ll bring up Brave task manager.

I’m not sure about battery consumption. Let me cc @Mattches on that.

@eljuno is correct – the processes are associated with the main thread, tabs and extensions (also the updater may be in there).
As for the issue with battery life – how much are we talking? How much was it consuming vs how much it’s now consuming?

@johnvs,
I believe that the processes we were talking about above are exactly that. things like extensions – Including Rewards (if enabled), ad platform, etc – run in the background.
