I'm afraid Opera could lose market shares to Microsoft if MS should succeed in developing a browser with a nice UI and some useful additional features.
Regarding chromium dominance: Browser market share reports can be viewed here:
If I read the numbers correctly (various filter settings can influence the result), in 2018 Chrome's market share was over 60 percent, whereas apart from Firefox and Internet Explorer the other competitors ranked in the lower single-digit percentage range (and some of these competitors, like Opera, are also chromium-based):
This quasi-monoculture might threaten security and diversity.
The background color is picked up from the site somehow.
I wonder if these background colors are saved somewhere in the settings during the creation of a new speed dial entry or if they are dynamically reassigned each time the speed dial page is re-opened.
So far I haven't found a configuration file that would save these colors, but from somewhere this color assignment must be done.
Though I have no trouble imagining someone legitimately wanting, oh, tesla3 as a username and not being related to the company.
Of course. Unfortunately, spammers also like to use as their member names those company and product names which they want to push.
So after the feedback received, I'll report any such findings in the future (via 'Flag Profile'), okay? I don't want to bother anyone with this.
If you think something in a user profile is not correct, breaks the rules and/or the terms of service, etc, you should always report it.
It is the amount of conspicuities that makes me hesitate and ask.
Registrations only of the last thirty days that seem dubious to me:
Very nice modding of the example member profile I gave in my opening post in this thread.
So playing locally saved files (through the Windows media player AND through opera) does NOT cause lags. I can watch them without lagging. Right now playing YOUTUBE Videos works totally fine. I think Netflix is the problem. Netflix in Edge & Internet Explorer & Opera is causing laggs. Nothing else does.
So there is no Opera-specific problem, but one that affects all browsers equally in connection with Netflix.
Possibly, but this is only a speculation, these delays are due to Netflix checking the network traffic (periodically) for the possible use of VPNs . Since Netflix is not free, their customer service team should be interested in helping you with that issue.
The only driver I ever updated is BIOS and Graphics (today). Which drivers should I check aswell?
Especially with Windows 10 all drivers should be kept up to date, because the various operating system updates often entail far-reaching changes to which the drivers (for motherboard, sound card, printer, WLAN, Bluetooth devices, etc.) must be adapted. For security reasons, drivers that are up-to-date are also recommended.
Your computer is powerful enough to do the mentioned tasks without any lags.
According to your information, the lags only seem to occur with an internet connection being involved. Is that correct? If so, there might be an IRQ conflict.
Can you watch locally saved videos and gifs without lags?
