Online lottery almost fried my CPU

Description of the issue:
Playing online lottery games caused full CPU utilization and overheating.

How can this issue be reproduced?

  1. Playing any of the online games on the illinois lottery website

Expected result:
CPU should overheat

Brave Version( check About Brave):
Version 1.33.106 Chromium: 96.0.4664.110 (Official Build) (64-bit)

Additional Information:


It took a while for the heat to build up before I noticed the burning smell. I use liquid cooling. Anyways, this isn’t a problem on a different browser like Microsoft Edge. Hardware acceleration was disabled in Brave.

  1. Update to the latest brave version.
  2. Test in private window mode.

≡ → More Tools → Task Manager (shows a more accurate usage of task usage)

Due to the animations on screen i’m getting beteen 8-18 CPU usage. Nothing like 100% here.
