HTTPS Everywhere has gotten very slow on one machine


Machine has Chrome, Firefox, Vivaldi, Brave
Brave includes a built-in setting to use HTTPS Everywhere, while the others need a separate extension.

A couple days ago, the first 3 browsers all got really slow starting up and loading the home page, but Brave was not affected. They were also slower in regular browsing, but not as bad. Confirmed that it was the added extension and not some other cause.

Brave loads in about 2 seconds, all 3 others took about 12. Afterwards, it loads instantly. (300 Mbps connection today)

So the question is, what's the difference in the 2 versions?

(And does it matter?)

Really?
No one knows?
Or no one cares?

Maybe just delete the whole thread, moderators.

Calm your horses, captain.

Still happening?
Loading which homepage? Have you tried a different (or no) homepage?

Yes, I tied different homepages - but I'm thinking the problem was in my DNS choices - discovered issues with that yesterday. Changed DNS and HttpsEverywhere is back to normal.
