  • @zalex108 Other user's and myself are encountering this problem, but it's not really the GPU either.
    It's the in-browser audio playback for everyone, and some are finding it's also the animated icons on the tabs, for anything, anywhere.
    It seems to be with any browser based off Chrome/Chromium, which Opera is based off.
    Boot up youtube then -mute- it and you can see a dramatic cut in CPU & GPU usage.
    It's been getting worse, and people have been reporting the problem for months, and it's tied into the 'tab icon is constantly loading' issue somehow.
    Who thought it was a good idea to remove the stop-loading page function from a browser?

    Actually it should be possible to stop the loading of a website with ESC, as far as I know. Does this not work anymore?

  • @yanta I only have so much headspace for remembering hot-key's.
    But taking away even the option of having a button/toggle is the main issue I have with that.

  • @Tagloff As far as I remember, the Reload-button to the left of the address bar has a double function:

    Either that button reloads a website, or it stops loading it when this process is active.

  • @yanta It doesn't seem to always go to the 'x' option when a tab is stuck on the 'constantly loading' icon issue. Usually it's just the reload arrow. And since the 'constantly loading' issue is intermittent, it's difficult to test.

  • @Tagloff Yes, I agree.

  • @Tagloff The X to stop the loading of a page is still there, if this is what you are talking about.

  • @leocg But it's not -seperate- from the reload button! So the 'constantly loading', linked with the animated tab icon glitch doesn't always give me the X. And I haven't found a flag or an extension to fix it.

  • @Tagloff No major browser has it separated from the reload button, simply because it doesn't make sense to have two separate buttons.

    Reload the page sometimes may help.

    • Mute is unnecessary, just hover the tab to change to a static audio icon.

    • Vivaldi works fine.
