Google Sheets unusably slow in Brave Browser

Description of the issue:
Opening a simple Google sheet is now takes over 10 seconds and editing cell contents causes everything to grind to a halt.

How can this issue be reproduced?
Open a Google Sheet. The slow open and edit times happens across different Google Sheet files and different Google Accounts across Brave browsers.

Note, Microsoft Edge will open the same Google Sheet quickly and allow normal editing times. Nothing is slow.

Expected result:
Google sheet opens quickly with seamless editing (nothing slows down to a halt).
Brave Version( check About Brave):

Additional Information:
The following did not fix the problem:

  1. cleared the cookies and cache for all time
  2. Reset Brave Settings to default
  3. Disabled all extensions

Having the same issue! Tried all of the same fixes. Brave is usually my go to for google could, but sheets is completely broken after updating. v1.44.101

Sheets are slow to open, painfully slow to try to navigate through (any scrolling, cell navigation, etc) and actions and updates are virtually impossible.

I’m also having this problem. I tried downgrading to the previous version but then I discovered that you can’t disable auto updates in Brave! Annoying to say the least.

Edit: Managed to disable auto-update with an edited hosts file and google sheets seems a little smoother on 1.44.100 Scratch that, still very sluggish.

Same issue here on Brave version:
Version 1.44.101 Chromium: 106.0.5249.65 (Official Build) (64-bit)

The same sheet works flawlessly in Google Chrome

Same issue here on Brave version:
Version 1.44.101
