Sudden crashing on Mint 18.1 Brave Version 0.70.121 Chromium: 78.0.3904.70

I’m using Mint 18.1 with a 4.4.0 kernel
I have approx 20 tabs open
when I click on a link to open a new tab
Brave suddenly crashes
not sure what media in page is causing this
not able to reproduce consistently
not sure if there is a specific log to check?
:\
