Description of the issue:
I am using Windows 10 Pro and just installed Brave. I immediately noticed fans are spinning up. It looks like there is a 2x memory usage compared to Chrome. Currently I have one tab open and Brave is using 850 MB of memory.
I tried closing and reopening the browser but nothing changed.
There are no extensions installed.
Looks like it’s not a new issue but nobody reacted to it:
How can this issue be reproduced?
- Install on Windows 10 Pro with latest updates.
- Open any website.
Max 400MB of memory usage, comparable to Chrome and Firefox.
Brave Version( check
Version 1.18.78 Chromium: 87.0.4280.141 (Official Build) (64-bit)
