Youtube / Brave Consuming exceptional amount of RAM

Recently I am facing lack of RAM in my computer on inspection i found out that its brave and especially the youtube tab that just eats ram for breakfast, lunch and dinner.

is there a way to solve this ?

Even better:

For the sake of testing, I bite the bullet ( :wink: ) and visited YT.
I am not seeing at all the kind of memory usage your seeing.
Here are a before and an after screenshots:

Update: I get this is not just bound to youtube or brave, Random service appear to have memory leaks → filling the RAM.

I was not facing the issue a couple weeks before.
I have only removed packages like → latte-dock, blueman etc. Nothing related to system etc. I also installed asusctl for power management thats it.
