Memory leak with the new Beta (62.0.3331.5)

  • The new Beta (62.0.3331.5) seems to have a serious runaway memory (or leak) problem:

    Could reproduce this several times by just surfing this forum in a single tab for a couple of minutes, and no extensions except the default ad-blocker.

    The release version (60.0.3255.141) runs fine.

    macOS 10.14.5

  • @tflo It's mentioned as a known issue in the release post.

  • @leocg, thanks for your reply. Any link to that release post?

    In case you mean this:

    Known issue:

    [Mac] Memory leak from gmail
    Please report if you encounter any memory consumption issues using Gmail. We are currently investigating the issue.

    I don't use Gmail.

  • @tflo It's probably not only related to Gmail.

  • I've seen the leak three or four times more yesterday, while in Opera Beta or Dev. Apparently not related to the content of the page, but I might be wrong here. Before that I thought it had to do with Discourse, but it happened also on other pages, even with only "opera:sync-internals" open.

    But it is definitely not related to Gmail.

    Anyway, I don't care much anymore. In the meantime Opera exposed so many other technical problems and design problems that I moved on to Vivaldi. This thing is felt 50× better than Opera and might be a worthy candidate for my future default browser. (Well, currently it already is my default browser, but still on a trial level.)

    Nevertheless many thanks for your replies and support efforts, @leocg

    Bye
