First time checking Twitter in months.. Apparently a director of Brave found it needed to reply to a over 10 year old tweet complaining about browser memory usage? Just why. It seems quite unprofessional to me. More reasons for me to not even try their browser tbh.

@schoentoon the feed of that crypto moron is a reminder of why I am glad to be on the Fediverse rather than Twitter...

@FiXato Yeah, same. Which is yet another reason I just won't try their browser anyway, I don't care for crypto garbage in my browser.

@schoentoon they're enough of resource hogs without that crap...

@FiXato Which their browser undoubtedly is purely because it's still the same rendering engine as chromium.

@schoentoon man... the time 33 tabs only took up 2GiB of RAM xD
Let alone the 200MB you said Firefox used.


@FiXato In all fairness, back then and now still I always ran Firefox with super aggressive tab unloading. So sure there's a few hundred tabs in my UI, but almost none are actually active in the background.
