Re: Mozilla is so slow! Problem with my upgrade to 2.2r3?


I didn't see anyone else weigh in with quite my opinion so I 
thought I'd throw it in.

I would say that it went OK. maybe do some research, ask 
questions about those messages.

Definately memory. Buy some more, it is relatively cheap 
right now. I've got a P200 with 96MB and it runs KDE and 
has all sorts of processes loaded (Zope, PosgreSQL, 
Apache, etc). Sure, it is a little slow and swaps lots 
whenever I start something big but it is perfectly useable. 
Galeon and Skipstone work great, Mozilla is slow but also 
works. With a simpler window manager, you're going to be 
much better off than I am with KDE.

Opera of course is highly reccomended but I see you've 
had bad luck with it.
