Memory use

  • I have one instance of Opera 36.0 open, with one page open apart from this one (truth-out.org front page). Yet I have 5 Opera processes (plus the crash reporter), and of the top 10 memory consumers they are 1, 2, 4, 5, and 7.

    What's going on?

  • I forgot to mention that I'm running XPsp3, but I couldn't figure out how to edit my basenote, if there is a way to edit it.

  • One for the browser, one for each tab, one for each active plugin and extension. Like that.

  • Yet I have 5 Opera processes (plus the crash reporter)

    This is normal for all Chromium based browsers as they work in a multi-process scheme. As said, you have one process for the browser itself, one for each (individually) opened tab, one for each extension and so on.

    and of the top 10 memory consumers they are 1, 2, 4, 5, and 7.

    If you enmable the PID column in Windows's task manager, you can use Opera's task manager to see what are those processes.
