Description of the issue:
Google sites have freezing or lag issues.
Steps to Reproduce (add as many as necessary): 1. 2. 3.
After using Google Drive for a while, the page will freeze on uploading files to a folder, or sometimes even scrolling in the files list.
The Google Contacts legacy version pages freeze after a search for a contact - the contact search results appear, but the page freezes so that no contact can be opened.
Options that don’t work:
- refreshing the page is ineffective - remains frozen
- duplicating the tab is ineffective - new tab is still frozen
- Eventually, in Drive, Brave opens a “tabs inactive” dialog:
- choosing to retry is ineffective
- stopping the process refreshes the page, so it can be used again
Legacy Contacts usually freezes permanently, in a “waiting for Google” state.
Some Google apps, like gmail, can experience major lags while typing.
Actual Result (gifs and screenshots are welcome!):
Work should flow in the normal way, without page freezes or major lags.
Reproduces how often:
Always in Google Legacy Contacts; after an indeterminate time (at least once a day) in Google Drive, periodically in Gmail.
Version 0.59.26 Chromium: 72.0.3626.64 (Official Build) beta (64-bit) - and previous versions.
Reproducible on current live release (yes/no):
While I use Brave for Android, and would love to use it in Windows as well, the disruption to my work caused by the issues listed above makes that impossible. While I realize that part of this problem probably originates with Google connectivity issues, I find that I must return to the Chrome browser unless and until this can be fixed. Regrets.
