@dysfun ill tell ya what it *doesnt* have though is like, any SSE recent enough to run a modern browser lol
@artemis i have a ryzen 9 3900X here with 12 cores and 24 threads and it is just about enough to run a browser. wouldn't like to downgrade.
@artemis i currently have 519 tabs open in this window. not sure i'd want to try browsing on your machine lol
@artemis sometimes with difficulty, i admit. but usually the firefox bar is't so bad when you remember the title of the tab you want
@artemis this is i should say after i made a conscious effort to try and keep below 1000 tabs. i used to have well over 3k but firefox is just unusable at that point.
@artemis even with most of the tabs paged out, at 3000, just launching a new tab can be a laggy process, because adding and then rendering a tab is clearly a linear process requiring it to scan all of them.
How do you LIVE like that?
Digital detox, post haste.
Albeit, I'm the sort of individual who sets background images to a single color because I remember when 7MHz CPUs were FAST and a background image load added appreciable delay to boot times and performance.
It still does! I never disclosed it widely but Windows XP can be crippled by using an animated GIF as a background image (pegs the CPU at 99%).
I have a bunch of tabs and use this to not get OOM killed.
You can have your cake and eat it too.
@artemis oh it is. I got a Raspberry Pi Zero 2 W for early testing, and while the 64-bit desktop would nominally run, it swapped if you tried basically anything. And since a Raspberry Pi swaps to SD card it's so very slow indeed
