I am running Brave 0.21.24 on Win7 x64. When I open a new tab and type something, can be either a search word or the actual url, the initial search takes 6 seconds. The subsequent search in this window will take around 1-1.5 seconds.
I tried setting the new tab to a blank page instead of dashboard, but that didn’t do much. I read somewhere that importing chrome into Brave could cause that, so I did a fresh install - the issue persists.
Also, another issue is that browser takes 20-30 seconds to open (application is initially closed, and there are no “Brave” tasks running in the background). I didn’t find a solution for this, maybe someone recently solved that problem?
