Hi,

When I start Opera 32, the speed dial screen opens.

When I check the task manager I see 6 instances of Opera (opera.exe *32) running, all with various memory usage, ranging from 29k to 111k. Is that normal?

When I open FF I see only 1 instance running.

Why does O need 6 of them?

This is how Chromium based browsers work. They use separated processes for different things: one for the browser itself, one for each tab, one for plugins, one for each extensions.

In Opera's task manager you can see those processes.

OK, thanks for the clarification.
