Hardware acceleration makes website look like an old TV

Description of the issue:

Using Hardware acceleration on a MacBook Pro 16" with Big Sur public Beta makes few websites look funny. It’s like that for a few hours, I never had the issue before.

Disabling Hardware acceleration and relaunching Brave seems to fix it.

How can this issue be reproduced?

  1. On my MacBook Pro 16" w/ Big Sur Public Beta, activate Hardware Acceleration
  2. Relaunch Brave
  3. Visit community.brave.com or publishers.basicattentiontoken.org

Expected result:

The website frame will look like the screenshot, with normal moments.

Brave Version( check About Brave): 1.13.82

Hi @lokan,
Thanks for reporting - I would say to use Brave with hardware acceleration disabled but you already know what’s up !
