The developer version is several times slower than stable


  • Vivaldi Translator

    I don't know why, but the developer version (last two versions - since the icon became black) is VERY slow in comparison with stable version (1.3.551.38). At first I thought that the problem is in the user files or maybe in installation type (standalone). Then I installed again both versions on my desktop separately and tested: both with standalone installation.

    Interesting. They are indistinguishable here. I wonder why your system does that.

    Before v1.3.582.3 they were indistinguishable on my PC too.

    Maybe my system does not like the black icon. :lol:

    I hope this will be fixed before next stable release. :blush:

    Hard to know how to fix it, if it can't be replicated. No such behavior has been reported by developers or testers. Perhaps some other users with side-by-side installations can test to see if they can find a disparity.

    On the other hand, perhaps if you were to refresh your profile on your snapshot version, something might change.

    It seems like I have figured out what is causing this: my antivirus - 360 Total Security. When I quit it, both Vivaldi versions are working with same speed.

    Good to know.

    One reason why I stopped using 3P security software some years back. One of the best decisions I ever made.



  • Just wanted to add "me too". After upgrading to the offered 1.4 I thought I did a bad install, Vivaldi didn't come up.
    Showed up Task Manager, but no window. Killed them off re-install 1.4 and tried again, still no window. Did this
    several times, tried a couple of the RC, but no joy. Clicked the Icon to start it up again, then got distracted on something else,
    about a minute later, Vivaldi popped up int the background. Tried this a few times and it always took at least 30 sec
    to come up?? Went back tp 1.3 and Vivaldi comes up in a couple of seconds like "normal". I use Avg for virus and disable
    it, but 1.4 still took 30 secs. So I'm back to 1.3 til something can be figured out.
    I did try both 32 and 64 bit versions of 1.4 same results.
    I'm running on a Windows 7 64 bit, AMD quad core with 8 gig of ram. Don't think I've installed any software that would
    conflict. Anyways there is my "me too", hoping that someone will come up with a solution.

    The solution will be on your machine. You have something actively blocking Vivaldi.



  • The stable version 1.4 is quite good. Vivaldi has formerly loaded very slow, though the browsing has been excellent.. I just wonder why it has to run 7 prosesses to go … my alternative browsers work with a single, or twice.
