New Windows Slow to Open
When opening a new window there is a considerable delay before anything appears. About 2 seconds and another half second or so to finish. Even if I set Home/New Tab to blank.
I did a search before posting and noticed at least one person has noticed the issue on Windows as well.
I assume it has to do with Vivaldi's UI however that's not a good excuse. It's not so much of a major problem as it is an annoyance. As a web developer, I am very experienced with load times and optimizations.
Has anyone experienced this issue? Are there any flags or preferences that can be set to improve the issue?
@r3volution11 I've noticed this too. I don't understand why it is happening. I also get a delay a little bit after the window has opened, too.
If I recall correctly, standard advice is to check if your security software is interfering, or to clear your downloads list.
Thanks for your quick reply @LonM.
That's a good recommendation, however, I've personally already done that. I hope we both get a fix to this issue. 😄
@sgunhouse Partly because "everything" is not "already loaded." A single copy of the UI has been built and for the new window, the entire UI framework has to be built from scratch again.
By "loaded" I meant just that - bookmarks, history, mail et al are already in memory; the comment about clearing downloads shouldn't apply. There should be some way to just clone the UI.
