Lazy loading



  • @Ayespy said in Lazy loading:

    When you start the browser, it restores your old tabs (if set to start with last session). If you set to "Lazy load," it starts faster, because it does not try to fetch any of your old tabs other than the last one you had open. If you don't set that, it loads all tabs on startup. Makes startup slower, and uses more resources, BUT content is already present on each tab you click.

    If you "Hibernate" a tab or tabs, that tab ceases to try to fetch or reload anything in the background. It becomes more like a bookmark for the address it is on and only activates when you select it.

    Thanks, so what I understand from your explanation is that - no matter if lazy tab and/or hibernate is activated - at the latest when I click on an old tab this tab will refresh to the actual content of the website, right?

    Fortunately this is not what I experience with Vivaldi lately. I prefer - at least with a certain number of tabs - that when I activate a tab again (even across closing the browser) I see the content as it was when I put the tab out of sight. Only after pressing "Reload current page" the old content will be updated.

    While I believe that depending on the webpage this behavior can not be guaranteed by the browser I think and hope that "hibernating" gives me this as much as possible.

    But what puzzles me is that turning on and off hibernating and especially checking if a tab it set to hibernate or not seems not possible.
    Why is it not possible to put the currently active tab to "hibernate"? Why do I need to activate another tab so that I can right click the then inactive tab to get the menu item "Hibernate Tab"?
    As soon as tabs are stacked "Hibernation" gets even more ambiguous.

    What about pinned tabs? I have a few pinned tabs and I disabled Lazy loading but when I start Vivaldi, the pinned tab shows a cached version and I have to reload the page - so it doesn't seem to work for those tabs. Can you verify it?

    @gordon.daimler - My pinned tabs don' load until I click them. Then they load a current version. If I turn off lazy loading, they load current. But then, none of my pinned tabs are static pages. With lazy loading on, ALL of my static page tabs load cached versions when I open them.
