I'm experiencing some problems with Opera GX on my laptop. Whenever I try to open certain websites, the browser freezes or crashes. I've already cleared the cache and updated Opera GX to the latest version, but the issue persists. What could be causing this problem, and what steps can I take to resolve it?

Opera GX's performance issues on low-end PCs can occur due to various reasons, including hardware limitations or system configuration. Here are some steps you can take to potentially improve Opera GX's performance on a low-end PC:
Update Opera GX: Ensure that you are using the latest version of Opera GX. Developers often release updates that include performance improvements, bug fixes, and optimizations. Go to the Opera GX menu (top-left corner) > Update & Recovery > Check for updates.
Limit resource usage: Opera GX includes built-in tools to limit CPU and RAM usage. Open the GX Control panel by clicking the GX Control icon on the left sidebar and adjust the limits according to your system's capabilities. Lowering these limits can help allocate more resources for other tasks, such as gaming.
Disable unnecessary features: Opera GX offers several features, such as visual effects, Twitch integration, and news feeds. Disabling or reducing the usage of these features can help improve performance. You can access these settings through the GX Control panel or the browser's settings menu.
Clear browsing data: Over time, accumulated browsing data, such as cookies, cache, and history, can impact browser performance. Clearing this data periodically can help improve Opera GX's speed. Go to the Opera GX menu > History > Clear browsing data, and choose the relevant options.
Manage extensions: Extensions can consume system resources. Disable or remove any unnecessary or resource-intensive extensions that you might have installed. To manage extensions, go to the Opera GX menu > Extensions.
Adjust hardware acceleration settings: Hardware acceleration can offload certain tasks to your computer's GPU, potentially improving performance. However, it may not work optimally on low-end PCs. To adjust hardware acceleration settings, go to the Opera GX menu > Settings > Browser > System > Use hardware acceleration when available, and toggle the switch.
Consider upgrading hardware: If your low-end PC's hardware is significantly outdated, it might struggle to handle resource-intensive tasks. Upgrading components like RAM, CPU, or storage can provide noticeable performance improvements for both gaming and browsing experiences.
Close unused tabs and applications: Having multiple tabs and applications running simultaneously can strain system resources. Close any unnecessary tabs or applications to free up system memory and improve performance.
