How to make Opera browser run faster on startup?

In recent years, Opera’s web browser has rightfully won the sympathy of many Russian Internet users. The equally fast display of web pages, as well as numerous convenient necessary functionality, unfortunately, has not yet been properly mastered by its other brethren. In July 2011, according to Internet statistics (the average number of entries of this browser for the seven largest mail.ru services), its share “on the web market” is 22.4%. Users with a solid “experience” still remember the times when the browser was paid, remember the already free versions 8 and 9. It was really a time of deserved delights, thanks to a good browser interface and high speed of its work. But, unfortunately, Opera 11 released in 2011 caused a lot of criticism from even the most loyal fans. Without going into technical details, we still wish the developers to fix all the shortcomings over time and not allow them in future updates. Let us dwell, however, on one of them – it is definitely present in Opera 11.10. The fact is that in the file system of any browser there is a so-called “cache” where a web page with all the files and components related to it is loaded. This allows, for example, to later open this web page without an Internet connection. Each web browser has its own “file ideology” of placing the cache in the space of the entire file system on the disk. Opera places it here (Windows XP): C: \ Documents and Settings \ UserName \ Local Settings \ Application Data \ Opera \ Opera \ cache. Folder-catalogs of type B_TSTTsTs (B – letter, C – number) grow like mushrooms after rain, – downloadable web pages are placed in them. Even for a short period of time (for example, a week), their number can reach 100-150 or more. In total, the number of components in these folders can be several tens of thousands. This, apparently, is one of the main factors of “braking” the browser when it starts. It should be noted that in earlier versions of the browser for such a cache was allocated only one single folder, and it perfectly fit all the web pages with all their components. However, for Opera 11, the developers went a different way for some reason, and the cache now is such a “distributed” one. Yes, of course, it is possible to clear the browser cache here (this feature is fundamentally present in every browser): “Tools – General Settings – Advanced – History – Clear”. But as it turns out, only the components in these folders are deleted, the folders themselves remain in place. And their subsequent deletion significantly reduces the browser “start” time, which in the most “running” cases, even on high-performance computers, can be 7-8 seconds or even more. Unacceptable agree? So, the way: delete once or twice a week, with the browser not working, all these – already empty – folders after “Cleaning”. And your favorite Opera will “jump up” every time almost instantly. This can be done in two ways: through the “Explorer” or using any file manager installed on your computer (for example, the very popular Far Manager).
