Vivaldi for some time eats up all RAM!!!

  • As above: for about few weeks Vivaldi poorly manages PC's RAM space. When I open more than 10 tabs and work with them for a while Vivaldi stucks and Windows shows info that Ram space is low. I was enduring it, since 1st I was hoping for quick fix, 2nd After its crush and relunch it was ok for another while. But today whole Windows stucks & becomes unuseable.
    Vivaldi opens up few instances of himself. Why?
    Can I fix it?
    Can you fix it?

    I just love Vivaldi. it's my no 1 since alfa. PLS help me.

    @Qbi-Wan: Chromium is the code base of Vivaldi, so like Chrome, Vivaldi has a separate process for each tab, helper and extension.

    In your case, what happens if you refresh your profile?

  • Hi, every Tab start own process, every extension too.
    All Chrom(ium) based browser work so, only modern browser work different is Firefox,
    Not much we can do, except more RAM.

  • So, basically you want to say that 10 active tabs eats 8 GB OF RAM while few months ago 40 tabs was no challenge to Vivaldi... RLY?
