Opera 12.18 is too unresponsive / lags

Post by Fraizeraust »

I notice lots of lags when using Opera (version 12.18) and seems to be so unresponsive that it takes much to operate certain tasks while browsing the web. I did check the task manager and found that the CPU process was tremendously high (100%) - even when you launch the browser. The weird thing is, when using Firefox 45 it doesn't happen but with few lag spikes (at least not like this) for example. My VM has currently 825 of RAM.

Can anyone see what's wrong? Should I add more RAM to the VM or it's something else?

You seem to have the Illusion of ROS being ready for end Users. See my signature.
ReactOS is still in alpha stage, meaning it is not feature-complete and is recommended only for evaluation and testing purposes.

@EmuandCo: I'm fully aware of ReactOS not being yet a fully stable system and many critical bugs still in the wild. I was just mere curious why just Opera 12.18 and why not Firefox 45 (heck, or Opera 9.64)?

Perhaps Firefox 45 tolerates the behavior of ReactOS's current Memory Manager better than Opera 12.18.
(I know nothing, I am only guessing.)

I had my Vbox network setting set to NAT and it took a lot more memory, then I changed it to bridged adaptor and it worked much better.
I don't know if that is your issue but you can try something like that.

@osuser25: I did what you said however it still consumes lots of CPU power. I guess we can say safely it's the ReactOS core problem rather than mine so it wouldn't make much sense to find a solution for it. I'll stick with Firefox 45 for further testing purposes anyway.

Also I tend to run ROS in VirtualBox with at least 2 gig of memory.
