Opera Browser High CPU Usage - SOLVED!

Opera browser on Ubuntu Server 13.04 was using anywhere from 81% to 97% of my CPU. This problem was corrected as follows:

1 - Go to Menu > Settings > Preferences > Advanced (Tab) > History.
2 - Next, look for the "Memory cache" section. Change your settings from "Automatic" to "400 MB".

Verification:
No need to restart Opera. Just run the following commands in a terminal:
$ top

Look for an entry resembling "opera" or "/usr/lib/opera". Opera will now appear to utilize less than 1% of your CPU.
