Opera lags when hovering mouse over ads with long URL's

  • No need to use ad links. Just consider these sample urls below. Press the down button on your keyboard to scroll at a constant speed and compare the smoothness when the mouse pointer is not over the links to when it is and you move it up and down quickly (basically, making that box below with the url preview quickly and repeatedly appear and disappear).

    Well, just holdin' mouse cursor over links area doesn't make scroll stutter, but 'swinging' mouse from neutral area (left side) to links and back makes clear smoothness problems. Same in private window, thus no problems with extensions. O43dev, W10, Intel video.

  • It displayed fast here. No delay at all. I do have a pretty decent system though so maybe it's just a horsepower issue for slower systems?

    Certainly not (only) horsepower issue, when other browsers and especially Chrome do not suffer. There must be some (unneeded or badly implemented) internal operation outside page rendering (can be related to displaying url box - of course I can't know, just guess), which locks interface up for some tens of precious milliseconds.
