    Re: bookmarks and browser performance?

    Fairly sure Firefox does those optimisations itself these days, based on appropriate criteria.

  10. Re: Firefox 4 -- Faster but no HW Accel. for Linux

    Works beautifully here at the moment, except Flash flickers badly. Better than the massive memory leak (growing 100mb/second) Flash caused with H/W accelerated layers on until recently :)

    Re: Nautilus Properties thought

    I agree that would be a nice addition. Could be worth filing a bug for that small change, or perhaps Nautilus Elementary does it (or will be receptive to the idea).

    [SOLVED] Re: Joomla on 10.04

    I think on a 64-bit platform with 64-bit Virtualbox, you can run 32-bit VMs. Not vice-versa though. At least, that's what I'm doing with VBox from the Ubuntu repositories on 10.04.
