I hadn't thought to try Firefox. I wonder if it would make any difference?
I've seen a slowdown now and again, but it seems to be network related
somehow. My ISP's network was on the fritz yesterday, and it took an
inordinate amount of time for pages from any of my local web interfaces (on
this box, or any on my LAN) to come up.
It feels kind of like the bad old days when there was some screwy problem with
localhost not getting set up correctly, or something like that.
If that ever happens again, I'll go try Firefox, and see if it makes a
difference. This screwy localhost or whatever thing I'm thinking of, but
can't quite remember, used to affect File->Open dialogs and such too, and was
KDE wide, anytime KDE used KURL for something, which is frequently.
I'm running 3.5.3 myself, and freebsd.org just came up in no time flat. I
hadn't been there before, so it wasn't cached.
