Crap Crap Crap and more Crap
« on: April 22, 2015, 02:30:50 PM »
Is there any browser that does not eat mem and CPU that is worth sitting in front of?

I just casted a local radio station from Chrome...

Come down to find 72% of my CPU is being used and my computer is lifting off the table and sounding like a jet airliner...

DAFUQ!

I'm not aware of one.

People seem to like qupzilla but I have never tried it. I think it's Qt so there may be a lot of dependencies.

Confirmed -

It was a rhetorical question and an opportunity to vent. Yeah I know there's nothing out there at all to replace the pile of crap that we know now as browsers or the shape of the standards that they adhere to

+100 ;)

It's all crapware!!!

I'm currently on win 7 at work, and have IE 10, chrome and FF.

FF tops the mem usage by far, with 1 tab showing google search page and doing nothing!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I've never tried it, but if you just want to listen to music, can you cast the radio station in a text-based browser like lynx or elinks?

I may investigate that tomorrow.

And I just noticed I have crossed the 900 post threshold.

I'll have to come up with 96 random comments next week to break 1000.

Chrome has a cast add-on that will cast anything. .

Likewise any app will have to have casting capabilities

I just go to my radio station site and click play!

Total crap. No doubt. But still tied to the Mozilla thing.

I'm currently running Roaster with a youtube streaming @ 720p and three more tabs. Only a tad more RAM than the weasel with just four forums tabs (no streams). Roaster is not a full flegged all purpose browser. Not for everything, but less cumbersome than lynx and similar text based browsers. And plays html5 by default. No flash at all. Give it a try folks. It's just a python thingy.
