    Chromium is a kick-butt browser with many of the same privacy addons. Except Torbutton. All your old favorites like WOT, adblock, flashblock...

    Dillo I don't know about.

    What about adblock plus ? Is ABP available for chromium ?
    Sorry about that. What really wanted to ask was about the availability of noscript for chromium.

    Even today when it is seriously outdated, no distribution beats DSL on the features/minimum requirements ratio. TinyCore is much better but if you have under 100mb RAM you have to be careful how much you install.

    try using lubuntu...it is very good for crappy pc. furthermore, your battery (if laptop) can stand longer than your actual battery life.

    You could also build up a lightweight desktop configuration from a base command-line Ubuntu install.

    The PC that I was talking about is now dead. I used this PC primarily to download files via torrents.

    I am planning to buy an Intel Atom Dual Core.

    Thread necro.

    Beginning to feel like the linux kernel is just getting so big. I'm about to try out a few distros like slitaz, alpine, vector, manjaro-net, dragonfly bsd because my old laptop just feels so slow (using manjaro openbox edition currently). I have 3 spare hard drives so this could be interesting.
