Those are not ‘ghost tabs’ those are normal processes run by the Browser.
You don’t run 1 process for everything for security reasons and for stability.

Every extension is a process, every tab is a process, every utility service is a process which is about Network, sound, GPU process is an individual process, the browser itself is a process, the Renderers are also individual processes, plus every website can have an isolated process on it, which means more processes being used by the Browser to isolate processes for security reasons.

If you took 5 minutes to research how MODERN Browsers work, you wouldn’t expect a single process for everything.

Next time use Shift+ESC which is the internal Chromium/Brave’s task manager to know exactly what process is what, obviously Windows Task Manager is a terrible idea to use unless you use Edge which works fine with it.
