Memory leak in Vivaldi v5?
Am I the only one who thinks that Vivaldi is using way too much RAM and it has only gotten worse? When I open multiple sites from Yahoo Finance, but also other websites, my RAM gets drained real quik.
Let's say I open 10 sites from Yahoo Finance, I might go from 3GB to 1GB RAM, like it's nothing. And keep in mind, this is with Ublock Origin enabled, so all heavy advertising stuff is blocked. Is there anything that the Vivaldi team can do, or is it a case of Chromium being crappy?
@RasheedHolland What happens with a fresh profile (no settings/extensions, close tab immediately when Welcome page comes up)?
@RasheedHolland Well, it is a heavy site.
With uBlock active:
So it's not the site itself, but the number of subframes it uses that makes up a large amount of used memory. I've seen crappy sites with 20+ subframes each using 20-30MB, and things add up.
And obviously if you open 10+ tabs you'll see usage in the Gigs of memory used.
or is it a case of Chromium being crappy?
It's a case of modern browsers and web sites being memory hogs.
About the same numbers in FF:
Remember, it's not a Memory Leak unless memory is actually leaking - i.e. increasing constantly over time with no collection. If it just uses a lot of memory, it's not a leak - it just uses lots of memory
