@kmielczarczyk: why doesn't the dev channel receive the exploit fixes?

Super that important safety fixes were made so quickly https://chromereleases.googleblog.com/2023/05/stable-channel-update-for-desktop_16.html
However, what about the mobile version? There is something there in the stable version, but as usual no description of what....

Still can't turn the VPN on and off with the badge in the address bar. You have to enable it in settings (badge appears) and if you turn the VPN off using the badge menu the badge vanishes, the VPN remains on, and you have to go to settings to turn the VPN off and turn it on again. Inconvenient and annoying considering the free VPN is one of Opera's unique selling points.

Of course today's update still didn't fix the Tab mute button bug...
That's really pathetic now. It's been nearly two months since you broke it.

@op2 Exactly. Opera users usually get security fixes after a week (at least), whereas Brave releases new update in accordance to Chromium's release schedule. Chromium dev is already at 115, I wonder if Opera can be bothered to bump 2 versions to catch up...

@nuiin Hopefully this bug will be fixed soon. Or in the next update...

There is something crazy wrong with my Opera as of late. It's consuming constantly 30-35 ish % cpu load (sometimes it stops for a few mins, like twice an hour or so, but then starts again) and I haven't got the slightest clue why. Checked Windows taskmanager for days upon days for the past week atleast and also SHIFT+ESC in Opera itself. I thought it was rich hints extension but its mostly the browser itself and none of the other extensions or coming from some tab I opened. So now I decided to close all tabs and remove all extensions except for uBlock Origin to start fresh and check if it fixed anything, but still no dice. I'm almost suspecting the browser is hacked and being used to mine some crypto or something. And I closed all other non-essential programs too.

@kassandra1 I decided to check your words with my own example. To my surprise, the situation is identical. With standard, active (for me personally) use, consumption varies from ~30% to ~60%. I made comparisons with Microsoft Edge, the situation is radically different: with the same activity the consumption fluctuates around ~10-30%.
But you also can't miss the fact that if you're working in one tab (with 10+ open), consumption fluctuates around ~1.5-8%. Once you start switching through all the tabs, consumption rises to ~35-65%. For example, in Microsoft Edge with the same scenario this percentage is ~15-30%.
This may be due to a feature in the browser that puts the inactive tab into "sleep", and when you switch again the percentage of consumption increases.

@snake-plissken: No it has nothing to do with the amount of tabs. I've been having around 30-50 tabs open for years now in Opera and other browsers as well, yet only Opera does this as of late and its extensive. I hear my fan being somewhat loud and it drives me insane because it doesn't even turn on normally when I'm simply browsing even when I'm just watching YT videos or on Google Maps (with igpu) and especially not when I'm just simply browsing articles. I know how my computer behaves and how loud its supposed to be in which situation and I can tell there's something off with Opera.
And to be fair, Opera has been doing this for way longer than just 'as of late' actually but it has never been this wild.
Btw I wish I could manually set certain tabs to sleep with that auto-sleep functionality knowing I won't be using it anymore yet still want to use it later (yeah I know theres Auto Tab Discard, but would've rather have it as default option). So Opera dev-lads and gents, if you are reading this, please make it happen?

Opera using 20-40% CPU on average here with normal webpages open, no streaming.
Task manager showing red under power consumption "Very High".

@vegelund: Exactly and it shouldn't be like that. It should be fluctuating at around 3-8% with some real short spikes to 20% or so whenever you are scrolling a page. Just compare it to a few different chromium browsers and even Firefox with the exact same pages open, exact same addons. Open the browsers fresh, don't open at the same time but do it seperate so they won't fight for memory (regardless if you got 32GB) and start opening a bunch of the same tabs just like you would use it normally. Then start monitoring after 3 minutes after you opened it for a while. Literally FF for me in idle with 40 tabs is between 0,9% and peaking at about 10,2% but mostly somewhere in the middle of those for the most time.
Opera does not make sense whatsoever.
