Excessive Memory usage

Description of the issue: For the last few weeks (Atleast) Brave has started using an excessive amount of memory when running.

How can this issue be reproduced?

1.Run Brave browser
2.Do internet things.
3.Leave browser tabs open.

Expected result: Memory usage climbs to over 1gb and eventually as high as 2gb PER TAB

Brave Version( check About Brave): Version 1.18.75 Chromium: 87.0.4280.101 (Official Build) (64-bit)

Additional Information: Basically if I don’t close a tab after every single page I visit, or leave my browser running, the Memory usage climbs regardless of what is actually on the page.

As far as I know, there isn’t actually a process for each tab. Check the Brave task manager to see what is take how much RAM within the browser.
