I usually have seven tabs open at all times: Gmail, Tradingview (x3), my webpage, and my crypto trading platform (plus a random search tab).
I have a new-ish Dell Inspiron 17, 5000 series (if that matters) 32 GB, 1.8 GHz, and when my Brave tabs are open, the machine runs hot and loud until closed. This never happened with Chrome on my broke down, five-year-old Acer Aspire, so I’m assuming it’s a Brave thing.
When I open the Task Manager, it is showing 40 Brave applications open. That number increases every few days. If I selectively try to close the superfluous ones via the Task Manager, they just pop back up in the list.
I have closed the Browser and reopened. It only makes it worse. I have rebooted the laptop which temporarily cuts down the number of Brave apps showing in Task Manager, but over time, the number climbs back up, and my laptop runs hot, continually. (No the exhaust port is not blocked.) My husband is experiencing the same issue and can’t figure out how to stop it.
We have Brave Version 0.62.51 Chromium: 73.0.3683.103 (Official Build) (64-bit)
What can we tweak to quell the excessive heat and wear to our machines (and still use Brave)?
