Hidden processes are out of control

  • Opera Developer 38.0.2205.0 for Windows 7 64-bit (WoW64)
    Hidden processes are out of control. I had Opera open for about five minutes, visited only one website and Opera was already using 119 processes. I used the Pskill utility and it says, "119 processes named opera and their descendants killed." I am not claiming this is a fault with Opera, but I am asking what can be done to prevent this exploitation.

  • How many tabs are opened? How many extensions are being used?

    You can open Opera's task manager to check all opened processes.
