Does the site work as expected when using Chrome? Yes

Brave version (check About Brave): 1.57.47 Chromium: 116.0.5845.96

I have tried almost all methods I found in internet. Tried it with a new profile, incognito mode, disabling hardware acceleration, disabling vulkan, changing ANGLE graphics backend, etc.

Do you have a graphics driver installed for your GPU? If you’re on linux the nouveau driver is pretty useless these days

Yes I do. I have checked it

Are you using a laptop with dGPU?

Try disabling dGPU for Brave browser.

If you’re on Windows, search for Graphics settings in Start menu > Browse > select Brave.exe from its installed directory. Now select Brave and choose Battery savings option.

Try checking if this solves your problem.

Disabling HW acceleration will cause the lag.

I disabled and re-enabled it
