<! Has anyone noticed high CPU usage by privacy badger? !>
When this image was taken privacy badger was not actively blocking anything and only 1 tab open. I have noticed this happening on occasion, no real pattern. Privacy badger will suddenly start consuming 5x CPU. When I am streaming a video it only uses 4. UBlock Origin almost never gets above 1 on my PC so privacy badger at 17 sees abnormally high. I have disabled it for now
