"Opera Browser Question"


          

I recently installed Opera based on Paul's post about switching to Opera. I find it snappy etc but the amount of cached files after a few minutes of browsing is not good for my SSD. I'm running Opera 54.0 on Windows 7 and I was just wondering if older flavors of Opera have an option in settings to move to cache to another drive. T.I.A.

Thanks Bob. I happened to see that post already. Maybe I'll just have to do the same thing as I had to do with Firefox and Palemoon and install an older version of Opera.

I don't think that activity will harm your ssd the limited amount of read writes issue is way overblown. I've had mine for quite some time and it still comes up as healthy with no real drop in performance.

Thanks for your reply John. What version of Opera are you running?

I use Chrome actually but that opens a new instance in task manager for every extension every tab so I can't imagine it writing to disk any less than Opera.

Thanks John. I've never given Chrome a try so maybe it's time to give it a whirl.
