As the title says. Using the latest Brave release. I have 4 tabs open and use three extensions. This consumes over 1 Gb of RAM and launches 18 processes.
There is no need for this.
I am also using Firefox (need Chromium for one extension hence Brave) and have the same extensions except the incompatible one, plus another 4, and currently 23 tabs open. This uses 874 Mb and 9 processes.
That one extension is not the cause as disabling it in Brave releases one process and frees up 50 Mb of RAM.
I’d really need you to prioritise resource use. Doing some basic searching I noticed similar complaints stretching back for more than a year.
