I have recently started using Brave and facing one particular issue almost everytime. My youtube is very buggy/laggy/slow in brave browser. I am running brave on a windows laptop. There are several issues like sometimes it will not register the command at that time, the entire browser will freeze/hang, and then it will register the command after a while. By command, I mean clicking on the fullscreen icon on the youtube video player.
the recent incident was that when I clicked on the full-screen button, it just froze(entire brave browser) and was not responding for some time(like 15-20 seconds) while the video was also frozen but I was hearing the audio without any issue. after some time it automatically corrects itself.
Another incident is using the search button on youtube. when I try to search anything it will register half of the sentence(even if I type the complete sentence it will be showing only half on the search bar), the entire browser will freeze and then youtube will kind of restart(by restart I mean, it will restart the tab and send me on the home page of youtube and close the whatever video I was watching in the process). After this, the search bar will function properly.
