Why do I have so many Vivaldi processes running?

  • Over twenty of them when I open the task manager.

    Is that normal?

    @WombatPete If you have about sixteen tabs, yes. There is, as in all Chromium-based (multi-process) browsers, a process for every tab. Then there is a process for each active extension, one for the renderer, one for the JS engine, and one (in the Case of Vivaldi) for the UI.

    Oh, yeah, and one for the GPU.

  • Got it, thanks.
