Opera is slowing down very noticeably, and I see a lot of 'Opera Helper'

  • Running El Capitan, v. 10.11.5, with 8GB RAM. Until a few months ago was running Chrome as my default browser and then it really started to slow down terribly, with a lot of ‘Chrome Helper’ consuming resources. I was planning to switch to Firefox until I stumbled upon Opera. My lucky day I guess as I really like it a lot. At first it even seemed to be faster. But now it’s slowing down a lot, and I see many lines of ‘Opera Helper’ in Activity Monitor. It seems that Opera Helper appears as much as nearly 1/2 of everything else combined but perhaps I’m exaggerating a tad. Hopefully someone out there can tell me how to remedy this.
