Tabs using a lot of memory

Description of the issue:
Brave uses way too much memory than it should ever use. I keep getting the out of memory error “Aw, Snap! … error code: Out of Memory” since brave uses upwards of 5 gbs of memory in more extreme cases, and averages at 3 gbs just having my normal workflow of tabs open.

The issue has nothing to do with the extensions, or at least I think so, its just the random tabs deciding to randomly have memory leaks.

This mainly happens with:

  • Spotify (just now I was playing a podcast and noticed it was using 4 gbs)
  • This playlist loader that I use to load my playlists and shuffle them better than YouTube can:
  • Local pdfs

How can this issue be reproduced?

  1. Go to any of the sites above
  2. Load a playlist, play a podcast, load local pfs
  3. Wait and see

Expected result:
To have at most 2 gbs of memory used by Brave.

Additional Information:
Is my memory dying? Should I just buy new memory?

And it just happened again.
