Whatsapp web panel making cpu to hog 100%!!!

  • Hi,
    I am facing this issue from past few weeks that enabling "whatsapp web panel" causing vivaldi to use 100% cpu and making whole browser slow and halted.

    If I kill the whatsapp web panel things become normal withing few seconds.

    Could this be solved or any workaround or fix already available?

  • I am having the same issue, the side panel is unusable like this. I am using windows 10.

  • Did you report it as a bug to Vivaldi, guys? I have the same issue.
