Ever since I found foobar2000, my problems with music playback on my computer were gone, same happened to my video playback problems when I found Media Player Classic Home Cinema.

The only thing left was the problem with the browser. Every browser is slow and it eats so much memory, it makes it freeze or crash. Firefox was descent in v 2.x, then it started to get really slow and ****ty. When Chrome launched it was really fast and amazing, but after v 10.x it started becoming really slow too. Same goes for Opera - it used to be fast, but now it's really bad.

This little browser here is almost amazing, it has some rendering issues and lacks proper extension support, but that's probably good, so it wont get slow with too many extensions installed. What I found bad was that bookmarks can't be exported, but this doesn't really matter.

I've uninstalled all my browsers and left only this one, I hope that in the future, it will be improved and that it stays small and obscure, because fame ruins everything - Firefox, Opera, Chrome... I won't mention other browsers, because they are to ****ty to even be mentioned.

Try it and decide for yourselves - it's not perfect, lacks some features, but it's fast and doesn't use much memory. Perfect for browsing without headaches.
