Optimal Opera

I’m testing out using Opera instead of Chrome as my browser of choice, as recommended by Ernie Smith. So far so good. He notes that Opera is “basically Chrome (same engine) minus the battery drain”. My experience to date bears that out, though it’s in the early stages yet. The first thing I noticed is that memory usage for Opera is way less than for Chrome. That’s a big deal for me because I’m often noticing that this MacBook Air is in the red zone for memory with Chrome. »
