Performance Issues with recent Opera GX Update

  • I have no idea what they did to this recent update, but ever since it came out I've had nothing but problems with this browser. I got up one morning, and watched some Youtube videos with no issues. I close it out and leave my PC to do some every day things, come back a while later, and the browser had problem. I bring it up, wanting to watch some Twitch streams, and when I load up a Twitch stream, the video is choppy/freezing, buffering...just totally unwatchable. Tried Youtube to see if it was just Twitch being a tool...same thing, laggy/choppy/buffering video playback. I log into my Tumblr, and GIFs lag the browser, which never happened before this update. Scrolling and page loading is laggy on pretty much any website I go to. Even the speed dial page lags when loading. Everything just lags. I tested everything out on the original Opera browser... Nothing like these issues happen on that, so I've had to switch back to the main Opera browser, because I can't do anything on Opera GX now until they fix it.
