16GB of RAM
Skylake i7
modern browsers still running like complete FUCKING DOGSHIT

Just why? I am seriously thinking about just using w3m since at least it doesn't freeze or crash browsing a goddamn news article.

Embedded Javascript Bitcoin mining now a thing

I also have 16GBs of RAM and a Skylake i7 and tbh everything I do feels too fast

You could try a non-shit browser like Chromium or get an SSD

this goy bought 16GB RAM and i7
the only thing he gets is newest botnet and backdoors

he doesn't know browsers are broken at the basics and no cpu and ram will help this

I am using 10 times slower cpu than you yet I can do everything you can do on a PC, except web browsing of course.

<Embedded Javascript Bitcoin mining now a thing
now imagine when every site will start using that and you open a lot of tabs
also, the faster CPU you have, the more bitcoin miners will generate for them, and the more you will pay for electricity

so use it user. it's good. it's not a meme.

and it's probably quite bad at this 'news article' thing you're talking about.

The new Firefox will be much snappier, if you try the beta you can see that.

I'm using Chromium 58 with nothing but uBlock Origin, and not only am I using a dual-core i5 (with hyperthreading), but I ALSO have my CPU underclocked to about 1.2GHz on battery (it's a new option in power settings with the creators update, it's pretty nifty).
Shit doesn't lag or stutter once. Granted, because of the underclocking on battery, it sometimes takes about 2 seconds in that scenario to render heavy wepages, but that's it. Graphics rendering is the only thing that takes time. I have a YouTube video going a lot of the time, and there's plenty of juice left over for whatever the fuck.

The main problem I have with Firefox isn't its speed (in a session I've just started, even with a lot of tabs open), but its horrifying memory leaks. It seems like every 3 hours or so, as my entire computer gradually slows to a crawl, I have to "sudo kill firefox" before it causes the WM to become completely unresponsive and start Firefox up again.

IME, a lot of news articles work ok in Lynx. It's mostly the user comments that are broken, but I don't care about that. The formatting and such can be strange, but that's because Lynx doesn't care about CSS or anything besides plain HTML. But the content is there, and that's what matters.
Something like Elinks (which allows easy scripting) could be used to fix formatting problems, but I don't care that much.

Of course if they do tons of video embedding, it becomes harder, but I'm pretty much just interested in text most of the time. And even Lynx will load images into external viewer if you ask it to.

It is the Javascript programs that are normally embedded within each web page that slows everything down. If you disable Javascript (install Noscript), you'll find that things render a lot faster. I use LibreJS to disable non-free Javascript which is pretty much everything.

Tbh just wait until all browsers are rewritten in Rust.
Firefox is already 200x faster than before and it isn't even fully rusted yet.
Rust will legit save browsers.

How many undiscovered CVEs do these niche browsers have?

Brandon Price
Brandon Price

I guess it's kinda hard to tell. On one hand, there could be more vulnerabilities due to being so niche. On the other hand, these browsers are made to minimize bloat, so there's less code there to be potentially vulnerable.

installing nouveau from a ricer's ppa fixed it, unexpectedly. now the performance is on par with the proprietary drivers, no manual reclocking needed.

I can run anything at basically immediate computation, do everything instantly, even encode two videos at the same time while I listen to some music or watch some porn.

The music will only stutter a little bit, the computer won't respond to any input and rendering a ten minute video will take 2 hours.

I don't get this "need" to encode videos, much less two at a time (and while listenting to music, no less). Is this chan invaded by a bunch of youtube e-celebs or something?
Stuff I need to do: edit text files, compile small/medium programs, occasionally compile kernel & OS stuff (not including bloated junk like Firefox), use text-based network clients, use PDF/PS viewer, use simple image viewer, sometimes play non-HD videos or MP3 and such. All that works fine on any old Pentium-M laptop, and maybe even a Pentium II would work good enough.

I use cmus, and music has literally never stuttered on my computer. If I try the same thing I was describing there with GUI programs, then yeah I may have some of them breaking. The only scenario I've had here is overheating the CPU so much the computer turned off, a couple of times through the years not as a frequent thing.
It just werks, and it's free and it's fast, niggers. Cry all you want.

This. Firefox and javascript are indeed a bitch, but the scenario most of these faggots are describing in this thread is clearly on Windows, or at most bloated shit like Ubuntu.
Anyway, problem between the computer and the chair, not Holla Forums

software is so bloated these days that people have to reside with command line programs in framebuffer that still consume up more RAM than most advanced GUIs 10 years ago.

Some people feel the need to have "the best" and will shit on anything that isn't. They have no sense of nuance, they only work on superlatives.

I like to see tools for what they are and find applications for them. I use a laptop as my daily driver and Internet terminal machine. Whenever I need to do batch processing work, I keep a server computer that is also used for my permanent services (calendar, audio/visual services, file/data services). I use a dedicated gaming console for video games.

It works okay. Selecting the text field opens up my preferred text editor, which I like. You still have to open up a Javascript-friendly browser to complete the captcha, but Midori can do the job. I

faster, but still very slow

Firefox on an old 2008 Thinkpad just works on my end. You're probably running Windows.
You're probably a normie who opens 5 facebook tabs and 5 cat pictures tabs, then closes web browser and goes to party.

But he can encode 2 videos at once while listening to music.
The music will only stutter a little bit, the computer won't respond to any input
what is thread priority and process priority. Go to wikipedia learn some shit
music won't stutter even when encoding 10 videos at once, as encodings will be on lower priority that music playing.

and rendering a ten minute video will take 2 hours.
what are presets. https://trac.ffmpeg.org/wiki/Encode/H.264
a preset that is two times faster will result in only 10-15% higher file size.
also, why would he need to encode videos in realtime? just put encoding job and use computer normally

I don't get this "need" to encode videos, much less two at a time (and while listenting to music, no less). Is this chan invaded by a bunch of youtube e-celebs or something?
Yes, most people don't even need to encode videos. But some have to encode their personal videos made with smartphone or camera. However, for personal videos you don't need 4K resolution, you don't record 10 hours a day, and you don't need realtime encoding. You can encode them on old computer without problems, it will just take more time, or have bigger filesize, but who cares?

Stuff I need to do: edit text files, compile small/medium programs, occasionally compile kernel & OS stuff (not including bloated junk like Firefox), use text-based network clients, use PDF/PS viewer, use simple image viewer, sometimes play non-HD videos or MP3 and such. All that works fine on any old Pentium-M laptop, and maybe even a Pentium II would work good enough.
Exactly. All the common tasks will work on 15 year old CPU. Except web browsing, but that's because of niggers in web development and browser development.

I use cmus, and music has literally never stuttered on my computer. If I try the same thing I was describing there with GUI programs, then yeah I may have some of them breaking.
it doesn't matter if software is GUI or CLI. Music players use high priority thread for playing music so it won't stutter even if 100% cpu usage.

Some people feel the need to have "the best" and will shit on anything that isn't. They have no sense of nuance, they only work on superlatives.
fucking goys, let's burn them in ovens
something like "the best" doesn't even exist. there is not any CPU that is the best for everything

Whenever I need to do batch processing work, I keep a server computer that is also used for my permanent services (calendar, audio/visual services, file/data services).
Fine, but if police or jews get to your server they can steal data and see what you have on it. Or they could modify files and plant malware.

You still have to open up a Javascript-friendly browser to complete the captcha
You don't need javascript for 8ch captcha. Any browser with text + image + POST should work. Could even try to open image in offline viewer.

Juan Anderson
Juan Anderson

Right, Lynx doesn't display images at all. It can't. But you can tell it to show all image links on a page (with the * toggle key) and then you can follow one of those links. If you didn't configure anything it'll probably just try to download the image to your disk. But you can also set an image viewer program in /etc/lynx.cfg or just edit your ~/.mailcap file with entries like these:
image/png; feh -FZ %s
image/gif; feh -FZ %s
image/jpeg; feh -FZ %s
application/pdf; xpdf -q %s

In theory, even Lynx should work, but it brings up a "(D)ownload or (C)ancel" dialog when the captcha page is invoked. So I use "Links -g" just for that purpose.

They most hilarious irony I've encountered was when I finally upgraded from 2GB to 8GB RAM several months ago. GNU/Linux Firefox never gave me trouble before even with ~400 tabs, but now I run into its memory leak sucking up all my RAM all the fucking time. What in the actual fuck? Do I have to run this in a virtual machine to protect my memory from being gobbled up entirely?
