Delayed loading of background tab in opera 12 ?

  • Hi there !
    I'm using opera 12.10, and wanted to know if there is a way to delay loading of background tabs when you start opera with a saved session, I know this feature is avaible for higher versions but I'm on the v12.10 and want to keep it 😃
    Thanks !

  • Probably not, no.

    Unfortunately, not possible in "true" Opera. This feature was one of the most requested by users. But Desktop Team had ignored this suggestion.

    My Opera 12 usually have a lot of opened tabs. So, the start(restart) of the browser could be really annoying.

    I am using special batch(.cmd) file that starts Opera in "lite mode" that radically reduces Opera's start up delay.

    The batch file simply asks me:

    • Do you want to disable javascript in Opera? Yes/Cancel.
    • Do you want to disable plugins? Yes/Cancel.
    • Do you want to disable images? Yes/Cancel.
    • Do you want to enable Offline mode ("Work offline")? Yes/Cancel.

    For an example, with disabled JS and images, Opera starts much faster with a much less intensive CPU workload.

    Also, i have the custom buttons(made by me) in my Opera toolbar config. The buttons allow me to enable JS/Plugins, disable Offline mode, enable(load) images in all opened tabs in a quick way.
