Google news is a total performance pig

Description of the issue

going to google website cliking the 9 squares thing and then NEWS the cpu% goes to 30-40% then clicking subnews like usa, world, business etc cpu just keeps pegging 30% eventually it finishes and the page is fully displayed, some of the widgets take longer to activate than others because the cpu is crunching - yes I have a 4.5 year old box but brave works fairly well with all other websites but this google is a pig

Exact URL of the website in question

Did the issue present with default Shields settings? [Default states are: Block: Ads/Trackers, 3rd Party Cookies, 3rd Party Fingerprinting Allow: Encrypt Connections enabled (HTTPS), Scripts] (yes/no)

yes ? I never use that stuff

Does the site function as expected when Shields are turned off? (yes/no)

yes ? I never use that stuff

Is there a specific Shields configuration that causes the site to break? If so, tell us that configuration. (yes/no)

no ? I never use that stuff

Does the site function as expected when using Chrome? (yes/no)

yes same with IE but they are also pigs - this brave is supposed to be faster and it was for a long time but a few months it started getting much noticably slower for google news (I chcek daily)

is this all the graphics rendering for the google news stuff ? it looks like a complicated webpage

If you add the following filters to brave://adblock


Not sure if it’ll cause any issues, but see if it helps

thx but I don’t know what that means
this isn’t a major issue

They are test filters, that will block those urls. which may speed things up, its up to you if you want to test them.

but if I block the websites I won’t be able to see them ?
and where do I type this text ? what file ? otherwise pls don’t waste any more time on this bug - I’m about to enter a real 1 :slight_smile:
