how to disable multi process / how to fix tab display / how to stop loading all tabs on startup?

  • How can i disable multi process in opera?
    I want to have only one process for all 300+ tabs
    This can be done in firefox and works without any problems.

    Also having 300+ tabs i can't see more than 3-4 pixels width of each tab. can i fix this?

    And how can i make opera to load tabs only when i access them except pinned tabs? like firefox

    i know i compare it with firefox but i want to give it a try but i can't cause i get banned from one site where most of my 300+ tabs are cause they start to load on startup

    i have never had this issue with firefox

  • You should be able to use a command line. Try checking https://peter.sh/experiments/chromium-command-line-switches/

    it seems --single-process does the trick. BUT there is at least one problem: lazy tab apparently won't install. but to my surprise after i restarted opera without this switch i had lazy tab installed. starting opera with single process switch seems to disable that lazy tab. but i think that opera will stop loading tabs like crazy.
    Lets presume the matter of single process solved. and probably single-process wont load tabs by default. thats very nice of opera
    but how can i make those tabs readable? have a look at my tab bar

  • Currently the only way seems to be loading less tabs.

    i see. well, i'll give it a try next year.
    who knows, maybe they will decide to make some changes to that tab bar in the future but i doubt it since chrome is like that since forever
