  • I've had to dump Opera Developer and go back to Opera 19 Stable. I noticed Developer 21 1419 is not hogging my Intel i5 processor in my HP Pavilion G6. At one time I could open my wordpress site and have as many as 266 tabs open at once with no issues at all. Now I can have 25-33% of my processor being hogged and heating up my machine with 3-5 tabs open. This is just unacceptable and another annoyance meaning yet more changing over to another Opera. I dread this CPU hogging happening in the future on the Stable version, if it does then I will have to move over to Maxthon or Palemoon. I also noticed on this developer version that embedded video hardly ever works especially youtube. The website struggles to come through without long waits and accepting of certificates. At one time I had zero grief with the developer series but recently its been dreadful.

    By the way this new forum software is vile and not as good as the previous one. What is going on with Opera? I wish the developer of Palemoon would do his work on Chrome so we could have a proper browser.

  • First of all, what are you talking about? You say first that Developer 21.0.1319.0 is NOT hogging your cpu power, and then it all of a sudden does which makes you move back to Stable? Developer is not meant to be the official stable version because there is a lot of known bugs in it and that is expected. Please be a little more clear over which version that does what.

  • jaanesen, taking a look at the title of the thread and then anunnaki2's post it's clear that there was a typo in the second sentence.

    Original: "I noticed Developer 21 1419 is NOT hogging my Intel i5 processor in my HP Pavilion G6."

    Intended: "I noticed Developer 21 1419 is NOW hogging my Intel i5 processor in my HP Pavilion G6."

    As for the rest, I agree.

  • Also the CPU hogging from Opera is a known problem which is being looked into and handled.
