Why does Brave and its extensions slowly eat up more and more RAM?

I only have a handful of extensions and nothing too unusual. But does anyone else find that even if you close all tabs, the Browser, GPU Process and extensions tasks in Brave’s task manager kind of balloon in RAM use over time? I have started restarting my browser once or twice a day now just to keep them lower in size.

Why does this happen? I’m not sure if they’ll keep ballooning forever or cap somewhere at a level that isn’t super high and then stay there. I know they get pretty high!

Also is there any way to check the browser’s “uptime” or the time the process was started? As I lose track :slight_smile:

Thanks all! Oh, and overall I am very happy with Brave but this is just the main thing that’s been causing an issue for me.
