Excessive CPU usage


#1

OS X El Capitan
The latest desktop Brave was sitting idle for several hours with one page open:

It now consumes 110-120% CPU and Brave is very unresponsive.

@kika sorry for the slow reply.

I think you’ll be pleased once 0.15.3xx goes out the door. The CPU performance is pretty incredible. (I’ve noticed single digit CPU use after pageload vs the triple digit pain you were experiencing before.

Thanks for the report!

Single digit! Give over. I’d have expected that for V.1.0 What was it leaking data before that or something.


#4

It’s a bit more complicated than that @Numpty (like huge rewrite of engine code), but yeah better perf is coming. :smile_cat:
