Honey Extension eating a lot of CPU and RAM

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Not sure if it's the right place to post, but here we go.


I've noticed days ago that Honey the web browsers extension is eating almost all of the CPU or/and RAM, yesterday it was using 90% of the CPU and almost 6GB of RAM (bad for me not making a screenshot) uninstall it, and then all okey, but then today it's starts again slowly eating more and more RAM and CPU, obviously I unistall it again, and here goes the screenshots:


Don't think it is normal for an extension eating such high amount of RAM and CPU, until the point it makes it imposible to web browse without unistalling the extension...

Yep something has gone wacky. Check recent reviews, it may be an issue with an update. Could also just be Honey for Opera not being very well made, since Chrome and to a lesser extent Firefox are the primary markets.

I don't have the said problem on Brave, perhaps it's caused by Opera?



Note the process is being shared by another extension

I think it must be an Opera issue. I'm on Chrome and I haven't noticed any differences in Task Manager. I'd try contacting them to report a bug, if you have the time. 

Please, take everything I say with a grain of salt. I'm not a professional, just a moderately knowledgeable nerd.
