it will sound crazy in many ears but i experience a headache almost immediatedly after launching the brave browser.
i can only compare with firefox and a bunch of pretty unknown browsers.
did anyone notice something similar ?
it seems to make no sense.

Some times it's hard to tell what causes symptoms! Here's a fairly low-key browser or I've found it so.

Wow, never heard of the Pale Moon browser.  But that might be helpful to some, as it appears to be an old-school browser that is still getting updated.

Another browser that falls into this category is Sea Monkey, which I have used in the past:

There must have been something I didn't like about it though. as I'm back to using Firefox now.

I've never heard of the Brave browser, but looking it up on Wikipedia, it appears to have some sort of special advertisement functionality in it that I suppose could increase network activity or CPU usage, and therefore cause issues that simpler browsers would not.

i will try to look into that but guess that is not the root of the problem.
at first glance, cpu usage is not that high, but perhaps still higher.
