Some web pages hangs briefly while start to scrolling

Description of the issue:
If you don’t do anything for a few seconds on some web pages, and then want to continue scrolling using the mouse wheel or touchpad, nothing happens for a short time (~ 1 second), afterwards the page jumps and can be scrolled normally. This happens with felt 3/4 of all web pages (also this forum).

How can this issue be reproduced?

  1. Open web page
  2. Wait some seconds
  3. Start to scroll.

Expected result:
If you open a web page and do nothing for some seconds, afterwars you try to scroll the page, no response can be seen for ~ 1 second, afterwards normal scrolling of the web page

Hey @migoelo

Does disabling Hardware acceleration in brave://settings/system improve it?

I will give this option a try to find the issue, but this means a extreme energy consumption (CPU usage), right?

I haven’t tested for a long time, but I think I have found the reason.
If hardware acceleration is active, Brave used the Intel and the Nvidia card. If I deactivate hardware acceleration, only the Intel graphics card is used?!? The Edge Browser on the other hand uses only the Intel. In a Reddit article I read that this card combination (Nvidia Optimus) has problems with Brave, or rather the other way around. As a solution we recommend to start the Brave.exe with the Intel card (Power Saving) in the Windows 10 graphic settings. Since then I could not find any problems. I hope it stays like this.

Googling this (Related to Chrome, but can be adjusted to brave.exe)
