Quickly becoming sluggish after one or two days

By using a Mac I barely shutdown my computer, I usually do that once or twice a week (which is still much, but I use crap software and sometimes I need it).
Even if I don't rank it as crap Opera is one of the software which requires a more frequent than I'd expect restart: after 24 or 48h at most I need to do that. I even upgraded yesterday to version 49 but nothing changed.
After some time running (I always have ~15 open tabs at least) the UI becomes sluggish and slow, like taking 3 seconds to open a new tab! Or when I click on a tab with the mouse it considers it as a drag and takes the tab out of the window (this happens quite often!).
Anyone else? Any advice on how to speed up? I should stop having so many open tabs?
P.S. forgot to say that when I reboot the computer Opera is quite fast, even with all the 15 tabs open

@zalex108 I use one of two memory cleaning apps (four counting two other apps which will do it, too), and have to keep doing it, sometimes within 20/30 minutes, as Opera just gobbles up more & more RAM by the second. It may start at 3 or 4GB (with re-opened windows), but then will end up as high as 9.5 GIGS of RAM being used!
I don't know if there's a memory leak somewhere or what, but while other browsers can get RAM-hungry, too, none do it quite as quickly as Opera.
Plus, most of the time it won't open, and I have to force-quit, then try it again. and the same with trying to quit Opera, it'll just sit there, until I force-quit it....

unfortunately memory clean doesn't seem to resolve the problem, it keeps being dead slow.
Sadly it's starting to be a game stopper for me

And the steps for a clean profile.
If you do it, use the V7 extensions manager an export the list of all your extensions.
