Recommendation for a light browser?

10 posts in this topic

Hi friends,

I hope everyone is doing well. I am using an older model Lenovo T61 thinkpad (2008). It is operating MS Windows Home 7 premium 32-bit. It has an Intel Core2 Duo CPU T8100 and 2GB Ram.

I tend to have 4-5 browser windows open, each with 4-5 tabs. I am not doing any streaming, audio, video, just day to day browsing, mostly academic related.

I notice that my browser tends to slow down when I have a couple of browser windows open.

I am looking for a lightweight browser to use....any suggestions please?

Thanks!

Although of course popular, Google Chrome is very quick and dosent contain all the bulk that other browsers do, im unsure as to what browser your currently using - but i suggest Chrome :)

 

If your really suffering, maybe consider Midori - I have used this multiple times and have never had a problem.

 

I hope this helps

Google Chrome runs loads faster on Linux than Firefox does, so I'd go with Chrome.

If using Firefox, enable 'Ask to Activate' for Flash. Makes a huge difference.

 

Forgot to add: I have about 30 tabs open at present (across three windows) in Firefox. Not noticing any slow down at all on a Core 2 with 2GB RAM also.

Upgrade your browser to Internet Explorer 11, then compare with Chrome. Either one would work.
