Opera Helper processes

  • Hi there.

    I've found in Activity Monitor that there are huge amount of Opera Helper processes on my MacBook (OS X 10.9.4) - over 50 processes. It's not depend on open tabs - they are not equals.
    All of them are taking too much memory... What are these processes means? I think i can kill them manually, but i want to know what is it?

    Also there is one process Opera Helper EH - what is THIS?

  • These are the tabs, more specifically the renders, plus one process for the UI, one for each extension and plug-in...
    If you want to inspect them better enable the Developer menu entry in View > Show Developer Menu and open the internal task manager from it.
