Re: Firefox and Chromium ..... both are getting bloated
I have a pretty old notebook that I have done my share of DE hoping once Unity became a bloated and sluggish. But recently I have installed Ubuntu 14.04 daily builds, and Unity is snappy and very fast. Everything just pops and it a joy to use. My notebook's spec is 1.6 GHz AMD64 single-core processor with 3GB of RAM. One trick I do is install z-ram on it. You can do this by running the command
Reboot you machine and you wll be a space that is managed by the OS for disk RAM.
sudo apt-get install zram-config
You can check to see if it running and being used with this command Hope this helps you.
Yeah I know pirated copy of XP is free, but so is Ubuntu and it's LEGAL!
