Guest last edited by Gwen-Dragon
with the latest version of vivaldi and with executable parameters enable: "--process-per-site --enable-low-end-device-mode --enable-low-res-tiling" my browsing became slow as fuck, freezing as hell o____o i have windows 7 64bit and hp pavillion dv7 which is a lot heated suring summer. i can't even watch a youtube video :'( :'( :'( :'(
@wayrus what 3P security software do you run?
@Ayespy you mean chromium extensions or windows softwares?
@wayrus The main possible culprit would be a Windows protection app of some kind. That said, certain noscript extensions have been known to kill Vivaldi.

@wayrus Specifically security software, such as anti-viruses. In the past these have been suspected of causing vivaldi to slow down
@LonM Not merely suspected - proved.
ok i have microsoft security essentials and 360 total security (in combination with its extension https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/360-internet-protection/glcimepnljoholdmjchkloafkggfoijh).
@wayrus The authors of 360 Total also publish their own browser in competition with Vivaldi. And 360 Total has been implicated in blocking Vivaldi in the past.
@Ayespy omg -_____________ - what antivirus do i replace it with?! it was the only one free on the web to give complete protection :'( what will i do without this. i don't even have a firewall
@wayrus I don't use and don't recommend antivirus products (other than the built-in Windows Defender and Windows Firewall) But recently Avira got some good reports.
@Ayespy ok thank you man i also have windows defender actually. i will unistall this 360 shit and maybe install something easier.
I don't have AV either but I had checked Avira in the past, it's very fast and reports show that it does a good job. When I used Avira I rarely had false positives and even when I did I sent them the files and it was removed from their database in less than a week.
That said, certain noscript extensions have been known to kill Vivaldi.
This was fixed by Chromium, now extensions can't fiddle with requests from other extensions/apps.
i unistalled 360 antivirus but the freezes and lag continue :( i repeat this happened today with the new version!!
You can try installing a standalone version just to see if it's not your user profile.
@An_dz how can i make a standalone version?
yes it is my friggin user profile. i think there is a serious conflict with the extensions. :(
this is my list of extensions. do you know any problem or bug with them?

I've Panda Protect, cloud based similar to 360, but without the problems with Vivaldi
i'm finding out that the most problematic ones are Browsec VPN and Alexa Traffic Rank but also others. why this huge slowering problem?
