I'm thinking of reinstalling it but wondering if anyone else is having a similar problem, i'm frankly suprised that Opera would have the microsoftian behaviour of slowing down after a while. ;)
Three things affect startup time:
- size of cache.
- size of history.
- visited links.
See: Speeding up your startup time:
(manual quick test to see the difference: if you don't mind nuking your cache) - in the Opera directory, delete "vlink.dat" and "global.dat", and in your Cache4 directory, delete everything.
prefs -> documents -> link presentation -> visited links marked
Set that to about 7 days and exit/restart opera. That info is stored in "vlink.dat" in your Opera directory. If it gets to large, it can take a long time for Opera to check links between the cache and visited links - slows down general surfing and startup time.
