How can I make battery saver mode permanent?

  • I have a low end computer (2 GB RAM, P4 2.4 Ghz, 128 MB GeForce Fx5200, Arch Linux). Battery saver mode is pretty good for me, browsing is much more responsive. In the past I had to rely on outdated non secure browsers such as Palemoon to get similar experience because Chrome isn't available any more for 32 bit systems, and Chromium often crashes, not to mention the high memory usage. I would like to make these wonderful battery saver setting to permanent, and if possible, apply more similar setting under opera:config, to lower the graphical details to an acceptable level. For example switching off blurred shadows and maybe antialaising. In firefox one could apply stylesheets which did this job for low end computers with the help of the Stylish plugin, and there were a website were such stylesheets were shared. Is there a similar way in Opera to decrease the graphical demand on low end graphics cards?

  • I didn't found a way to keep battery saver permanently active, but you can use the Stylish extension in Opera.
