I’ve been using Brave for multiple years, keeping it up to date. I’m sharing an issue I’ve now been having from time to time (a few times per week) for several months where by my memory usage (as reported by the macos activity monitor) goes from my regular 1-3 gigs (varying with nuùmber of tabs open, normal), up to 15-30 Gigs slowly killing my 16GB machine because of the swapping.
My browser is kept up to date. My current version is 1.24.85
Looking at the Brave Task Manager it is the main ‘Browser’ process that’s taking up all the memory.
So my first question is : based on that last statement does it mean it’s not an extension that’s using up the memory or should I go through trying to find if it’s a specific extension ? That would be a painful process since I only keep extensions I use on a daily basis and this issue only happens from time to time.
And my 2ns question : am I alone experimenting this ?
