browsers: how responsive is yours

Post#1 by francois » 24 Feb 2016, 21:06

What browser(s) do you have? Do you find it responsive? How do you adjust it so to make it more responsive?

Firefox. About as responsive as heroine addict after a hit when watching youtube videos. Sometimes takes about 10 seconds to close a tab.

A former firefox user, I am presently a google-chrome user. However, I have the impression that Google is getting more and more slower. Especially on my slower box.

So I am back to firefox on the slower box. In the past opera was giving a pretty good performance.

I have the impression that getting rid of the history is giving me better performance.

Following my understanding of fiscal paradise issues for the bad corporate tax payers like Google, windows, Apple, pharmaceutical companies, banks ... ... I am beginning to have societal and philosophical issues with Google.

I have the impression to be stuck with Gmail, but might move to opera and ducktogo.

Watching a video of a dorama, and thought it must be a special style, as motion would be fluid for a second or two, then freeze for a fraction of a second, and then continue. Then gmplayer also behaved same way playing the downloaded video. Later looking at temp sensor showing 40 deg C, so checked CPU, and amazed to see very high count, looked at top, found Xorg using up 94% cpu, when cpu should be under 10% :evil:

Started closing down tabs, found one iinocuous one where Xorg at 94%, closed it and Xorg back to normal, went hrough rest of tabs, found one makig PM work at 50%, also had bit of animation,so hit extension to close down javascript, and PM back to normal, anoimation frozen. Haven't yet found out what caused Xorg to hit the roof. :unknown:

Long time now not used nvidia driver. Ever since 3.18, if I remember correctly. However it could be 4.4.3 perhaps responsible in some way?

CPU, and amazed to see very high count, looked at top, found Xorg using up 94% cpu, when cpu should be under 10%
I also found the same when watching movie in gnome-mplayer using xv as video output. Changing to vdpau stopped xorg maxing out cpu.

^ Definitely Xorg maxing in certain browser tabs. Soon as javascripting halted, Xorg returns to normal within given tab.

I switched to Fifth browser. Highly responsive... out the box.
http://fifth-browser.sourceforge.net/

The only drawback is the author has not posted the
correctly formatted (FHS?) Slackware package...

Opera 39.0.2256.48 i586 since it uses less memory than Firefox.
Casual sites like this forum are no problem. :angel:
However, script hungry sites such as Imgur and YouTube love to make me lag in response. Sometimes I got to close the browser quick before it lags the OS to non-responsive :evil:
New to Linux but learning. Hoping to help out Porteus community. :)
