Been trying a few and SlimJet is by far the best. Has a good UI, and small foot print.
Running it on an XP pentium 4 with half a gig of ram. It feels as good as IE on an i7 with Windows 7 with 3 gig. Progress eh?
In fact it feels better than any windows 7 machine I have used. None of that waiting for explorer to decide to display a folders contents, none of windows 7s endless farting around with network groups and settings to get folders shared, and all this on limited hardware!
Remember how it used to be, when a pentium 4 with half a gig was a good machine, and you could browse, play music, edit docs, print stuff, all at the same time without it locking up on you?
So its a clean install of XP, updates turned off, and all extraneous crap (services basically) turned off, and its running a treat with SlimJet. Way way way better than the work machine i have, the i7 with windows 7, IE and mcafee. Try to open two tabs and play music and it gunges up!
If only there was a way you could look at all the sites on t'Interweb and see if they contained any information about questions that you'd like answered. You could call it, oh, I don't know, a 'find motor' perhaps?
I'll save you the bother though. No. Windows or Linux. It is after all based on Chrome (which makes me wonder what they've had to gouge out to stop it being a memory hog but that's just cynical, old me!)
Long ago (several years back), there came loads of feature updates for this site. When I came back after a break, I saw so many things changed/updated. It felt like, Damn! the last cool place on web is now screwed!.
I'm not sure if that's the time it was moving from Asp to Asp.net. Don't recollect, but I think I even wrote to Chris saying saying The new pile of feature dumps suck totally. It's completely un-intuitive. And all those 'recommendations'.
I don't know where went that guy who wrote all these. Now I don't even remember how the older site looked like. The current one feels so much at home. I think I had just walked through the same usual User-behavior, resisting change!
But oops! I remember Chris saying it out loud here in Lounge that Asp.net sucked and Asp was better, when this transition was being done! Do I smell some change resistance here
