YouTube Video, Macbook heat up and fans at 100%

performance

#1

Computer: Early 2011 Macbook Pro
Operating System: macOS High Sierra 10.13.4

Browser Info:
Brave: 0.22.721
V8: 6.6.346.32

Issue:
While using the Brave Browser, I go to YouTube and start playing a video. Within seconds I can feel the laptop heating up and then the fans throttle up to max speed and just stay there.
I also use Firefox Quantum for some things and have never experienced this heat issue or fan throttling while using that browser.

Are there any changes to my configuration that can help?
