@theproman It is "cloud" sync in that, like 99.99% of all sync operations on the web, the data is hosted (encrypted) on a remote server. There is no peer-to-peer sync in Vivaldi. In fact there is barely any such thing as peer-to-peer sync of web applications anywhere in the world at all.

@sludge It’s not a tea kettle?
It just means that Vivaldi had an error and the page crashed. Maybe it was using too much RAM. You can submit a bug report, if you think it shouldn’t have happened.
Thanks - I have since found comment online and worked it out! Kind of you to reply.
@yqq8 Creating a note with capture shouldn’t be dependent on the folder you save to. I don’t know what screenshot + renaming is. You click on capture in the status bar, select “create note with” and the screenshot will be saved to notes where you can name it and add a note. Such note screenshots aren’t saved to your selected folder in the first place. But I might not be the right person to help you with this, because I rarely use the inbuilt screenshot tool; I always use it on operating system level.
@luetage I'd expect it to change. Having to open two separate windows to optimize efficiency doesn't seem 'the Vivaldi way'.
While I have your attention.. it seems today is a special day for me. I have another problem that I JUST encountered. If you know how to help me with that, I'll grant you not one, but 2 IOU's for help with this issue. 3 total IOU's for 2 questions WOOP WOOP!
Here's a link to my problem!
This has been progressively getting worse and worse for some reason.
I've seen pages rendered like some badly decoded video frames - blocks of page rasterised in places where they shouldn't be, or blank page.
Scrolling is really sluggish.
Both the parts of the Vivaldi's UI flicker, and the parts of the page itself.
Opening DevTools feels like a Herculean effort.
The latest encounter was where I lost control of the browser, it was just flickering and switching between two tabs, on its own, not responding to any input.
For the previous few days (since I first wrote here), I was testing Chrome and Brave as alternatives for a few hours per day - they don't have any of the mentioned issues. This leads me to a safe conclusion that it's not the hardware of my machine or any of the extensions, but the browser itself.
Currently, Vivaldi is not usable for me anymore and I will be switching to some alternative until I see fixes regarding these things in the changelog.
too much hate from some people to devs who do their job. guys, nobody owes you a thing, relax, be thankful for prompt fix and support of old OS, most of the devs in other software projects just give up and drop support of elcap
@chas4 said in Far too high CPU load on MacOS:
You can also use the built in Task Manager (in the tools menu) in Vivaldi to see what tabs are using a lot of CPU.
Thank you, I had forgotten about this. It actually revealed significant CPU load by "Browser" and "GPU Process" while none of the open tabs exhibited significant load.
This isn't helpful, but . . . I installed the Bitwarden extension several months ago and it has been working. Perhaps if I delete and install it again, I would get the crash? I don't dare to try . . .
