"Large" Images Crash Tabs

Description of the issue:
Opening large images or pages containing them crashes Brave tabs. It is too inconsistent to reproduce with step by step instructions and requires specific samples. For example I’ve had tabs crash trying to load an 8,000 x 8,000 image but then succeed opening one that’s 16,000 x 16,000 and other 8,000 x 8,000 images. The issue goes beyond resolution and probably includes file size and type but I do have specific examples.

How can this issue be reproduced?
Here’s an example of what I’m talking about.

This is a 10,000 x 10,000 jpg, 4.5MB, it crashes the Brave tab.
Copy and paste it into the address bar because clicking it sometimes opens imgur’s mobile interface.


This is a 10,848 x 10,824 image, 26.9MB. Significantly larger. It does not crash the Brave tab.


Expected result:
Opening images shouldn’t crash Brave.

Samsung Galaxy Note 20 Ultra on Android 11

Additional Information:
It doesn’t make sense that the much smaller jpg image crashes its tab but the larger one doesn’t. It’s this kind of randomness that makes it difficult to pinpoint because the images that trigger it seem to be random. They’re not even that big.
