    Opera Browser - Voice.google.com site slow to update after received text

    It can take upwards of 30+ seconds before the text appears on the new site. Refreshing doesn't seem to help. It shows up right away after a refresh in the legacy site.

    Site is configure to allow notifications.

    This seems to happen in opera only. Texts received in chrome show up right away.

    Thoughts?

    It's really not just Opera only, though; last week even Google's own Chrome would have the same delayed-notification issue. Try hitting "Refresh" every now and then, as I think the GV code is still a WiP.

    ... also, has anyone else run the Chrome Task Manager when GV is in the foreground? Just sitting there as the active tab runs up CPU and wakeups to a huge amount, so I always switch away from the GV tab if I'm not actively sending/getting a message.

    Does anyone still, use Opera?
    Does it still have active development?

    Using it right now. My fave on the desktop. Very Chrome-y (intentionally) with a Scandinavian touch. Built-in ad blocking.

    I usually have all 3 browsers going (FF, chrome, opera). FF is my primary one. It's like an old horse. Slow but well broken in. Chrome and opera are used for other tasks. Opera is my #2. While similar to chrome, there are some differences in the UI.

    Opera isn't considered all that obscure, as it's in the top four of modern mainstream browsers used (Chrome, FireFox, Opera, Edge).

    But these days you have to consider how the dwindling voices of the average PC/Mac user are in their use of a taken-for-granted utility (not really a utility but a necessary application) like a web browser. Not too many experiment and are pretty dug in and oblivious with what they use and how they use it. I guess you'd call that a matured user base.

    I've dallied with the idea of trying out Vivaldi and WaterFox (and there are more browsers of course) but there's just no need. I only get on my personal PCs at home no more than twice a week (on one now though - Sunday morning ad circular review!), and at work I use a MacBook at a school system that is heavily Google-ized, so Chrome rules there.

    Wasn't saying it's obscure. I just haven't seen or heard much about it in a long time.

    I last used it (well, Opera Mini) on a feature phone. And my BD play has a version (Opera TV renamed VIEWD) but they are removing it soon. Si between the rename and removal I assumed Opera was basically dead.

    I still install Opera Mini on all my Android devices, which I use in Extreme Data Savings mode for most of what I do, in addition to Naked Browser for almost all the rest, and I do also keep Chrome installed and available, just in case.

    I also have Opera installed on my home computers, in addition to IE, Edge, and Chrome.

    I use opera beta on the phone too. It's one of the few browsers out there that does a text reflow when you zoom in/out. With others you have to pan left/right to read something.

    I would have loved to use Firefox. But forsome features I like with Opera
    1. When you highlight something on the screen, you automatically get Search and Copy as a popup
    2. There is a nice dashboard to keep all your bookmarks
    3. It's chromium based; so more or less Chrome; however, I believe unlike Chrome, it's not a memory hog.

    ^^^ That's what I like about Opera too. Doesn't seem to use as many resources, yet it is Chromium based.
