Is Opera envy of Razer Chroma support in Vivaldi? :D

    I had the same feeling as a gamer, the limiters are far more useful for a programmer or a normal user than for a gamer.

    When I play games I close everything, including the internet. All my games that should not need internet (not multiplayer) are even blocked on my firewall.

    But when coding I'm opening lots of software, some pretty heavy (which unfortunately is becoming a trend nowadays, lots of lazy coders) and things can get laggy. But then I already hibernate the tabs when I need to save some RAM with Vivaldi.



  • Opera already has that battery saver - to me the controls are just a better version of the battery saver (in that you can use it when not on battery to prevent Opera from using too much RAM or processor). Though I'm not a gamer by any means.



  • @HealingCross Your citation is only partial right.

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Opera_(web_browser)

    Opera is a web browser for Microsoft Windows, Android, iOS, macOS, and Linux operating systems,[8][9] developed by Chinese-owned company Opera Software AS. Opera Software is a Norwegian software company[10] publicly listed on the NASDAQ stock exchange,[11] with the majority of ownership and control belonging to Chinese businessman Zhou Yahui, founder of Beijing Kunlun Tech[12] which specialises in mobile games and Chinese cybersecurity company Qihoo 360.

    (highlighting by me)

    Opera was split into two parts because the Norwegian regulators did not want the whole company to leave - the advertising part of the former Opera software remained in Norway (don't know if they still are independent or if there was a merger with another company) and the browser part was bought back then by "golden brick", which is a Chinese company / investment group owned by Zhou Yahui.

    Not being your own master anymore is what stock exchanges can do to you.

    You probably don't stream your games to twitch and chat with your users while gaming ...

    @QuHno Definitely. And I also don't watch Twitch as I prefer to actually play the game instead of watching someone do that for me. ๐Ÿ˜ƒ

    You have a personality similar to mine.
    I will feel guilty if I do something while playing games like surfing the web, listening to music.
    I think what constitutes this personality is probably because when I was a kid, my computer was quite weak, just enough to play games and not turn on any other software.
