I assembled my PC in 2010. Since then I have tried most of the DEs. All used to run quite fast but now the latest version of KDE runs too slow so use MATE and sometimes XFCE. Both performs well.
The issue is Firefox takes a long time to launch and if I multi task with FF and Chromium the system becomes very slow.
If FF and Chromium keeps getting resource hungry like this I will have to look for alternatives soon.
I know there are other open source browsers and I have tried them but none of are as nice as FF.
I am not a fan of Chromium. I use it coz I have 2 facebook accounts.
Its tough to beat FF's superiority for 2 reasons, a) security (which is further enhanced with addons like noscript, adblockplus, etc) and b)tons of highly useful addons.
I wanna ask ask guys who have similar specs like mine. What's your plan ? Is upgrading the only solution ?
