Try using the Vivaldi (64bit) browser for a while, use the mouse wheel to
scroll up and down in various sites. i'm only playing with it for
reading
newspaper sites like the guardian, telegraph, huffington, metro and some
of
those sites hate being scrolled via the mouse wheel (though no problem in
other browsers)
If the pages start to flicker when scrolling then exit the browser and
watch
the desktop do the same for a while.
Admittedly, vivaldi is a work in progress but i have no idea what to
report as
i can't get it to do this every time. Just wish i could record it to show
it
happening.

i'm concerned that it affects the desktop after the browser has closed.
I'm
using kwin/plasma 5 - latest tumbleweed versions

Tw up-to-date and nvidia 355.11

Dl'd for trial and do not find the problems you cite. Scrolls smoothly,
has caused no crashes after about one hour.

Appears very snappy although the interface is rather different.

This was vivaldi-preview. Trying vivaldi-snapshot 1.0.300-5-1 now

Uses less memory than vivaldi-preview although not considerably but
considerably less than firefox, seamonkey and qupzilla, and appears to be
much faster accessing pages.

No video problems with vivaldi-snapshot either. And both play "The Good
Wife" on cbs.com but full-screen is not really full-screen. You-tube
plays well and full-screen appears correctly.

Over-all, first appearances vivaldi is a winner.
