How many of us have been stuck in that annoying situation where upon opening 20 or more tabs at once – the browser often freezes and kills itself. Those frustrations are about to be a thing of the past with Opera’s latest version of its desktop browser.
According to Opera, the latest version of its desktop browser is now much more efficient in handling multitudes of open tabs in one session. This means that gone are the days where one has to furiously wait for a long time for their browser to unfreeze itself (caused by excessive memory hogging).
Opera claimed that the improvement in speed is possible due to its new ‘smart startup sequence’ which apparently learns which recently opened tabs are important to the user – and loads them first before other tabs. That said, like the recent improvements announced for Google Chrome a few weeks ago, these improvements may only be noticeable by those with low-end PCs that have low RAM capacities.
Of course, Opera’s claims do come with a visual representation. The company has uploaded a video showing the significant improvements on its latest desktop browser. The company claims that the test results show an improvement in ‘tab-opening-speeds’ of up to 86% compared to the older Opera browser.
