Re: Iceweasel 's apparent sluggishness

Is Epiphany too gnomish for Statler? Have had some sluggishness problems with Iceweasel, has been ok lately in fact, but I use Epiphany on my plain Debian Squeeze install. Just wondered if it is worth a try.


Time to move on!#

Re: Iceweasel 's apparent sluggishness

FWIW, I found my sweet spot lately has been with Midori. It still has some bugs (like Disqus comments and I need to file a bug report on that), but it flies speed-wise and is a kickass combo with Statler and really worth checking out if you don't need all the Firefox/Mozilla family bells and whistles. I'm using the version in Sid right now. Arora is a pretty good alternative too.

Re: Iceweasel 's apparent sluggishness

I'll second chillicampari on Midori.
I'm still using 0.2.4 that's found in the Squeeze/Statler repos (haven't added Sid sorces just yet), but it's been a pretty pleasant experience so far. Only had one crash (with multiple youtube tabs open), which is more than acceptable.

Speed wise, it's about on par with Chromium, I'd say. A bit faster in some areas and a bit slower in some others (I'm talking tenths of a second here... nothing anyone outside a Formula1 team would be concerned about), but definitely much nippier than Iceweasel/Firefox.

Midori also seems to work better with my custom GTK theme and style script, for some reason. Everything just  looks more integrated.

I'm still learning my way around it, though... with regards to looks and font rendering and all.

Not tried Arora yet.
I still have Iceweasel installed, but only plan on using it if I happen to be getting slow ddl speeds from a certain site and need to abuse the Downthemall! plug-in.

@chillicampari
How does the version from the Sid repos run, and what additions/benefits have you noticed?

Re: Iceweasel 's apparent sluggishness

Scratch that (on the versions).

I just checked and Sid and Squeeze are almost matching on Midori (Sid is stating 02-4.3 and others+, Squeeze straight up 02-4.3)  and we're matched so I'm remembering it wrong as I thought we were starting with an much earlier version in Squeeze. So, the version in Squeeze is the freshest in Debian right now.

Midori itself is at 02.6 currently with a bunch of updates *but* it seems to bring in a new library set (at least for Ubuntu). I should probably get off my butt and compile the latest to see what that's about.

Edit- version numbering dyslexia.

Another edit- I wonder if anyone has dropped it in experimental yet...

Re: Iceweasel 's apparent sluggishness

I just tried Midori from the recommendations i got here,Im quite impressed with its speed,Faster than the Swiftfox i have,I dont like that it doesnt have a stop button,Havent figured out if i can put one on there yet.
I like that it has a similar look to firefox.

Re: Iceweasel 's apparent sluggishness

Iceweasel is now flying along.

I now suspect that, like windows xp, the .mozzilla file  accumulates crud which slows it down to a crawl : 20 - 30 seconds to load a page with a 7mb download speed. I also discovered that I had two versions of flashplayer installed!

I now have a uber fast Iceweasel. A miraculous transformation!
I exported my old bookmarks to html format followed by a clean Iceweasel install. I can now access them when and if necessary without installing them.
I  installed flashplugin-non free, gecko-mediaplayer for mp3 playback, no adblocker and a new theme (Rein). I haven't needed to disable pango and ipv6 etc (whatever it is called!)
Simple and minimalistic and is now turbocharged.

Re: Iceweasel 's apparent sluggishness

one word "chromium",  I don't care what mozillla does in improving the UI.  As long as they use the ole gecko rendering engine and Xulrunner, it's not gonna be as fast as chromium.  It seems like statler's iceweasel is a little more optimized like swiftfox.

Re: Iceweasel 's apparent sluggishness

Well what works for me every time is "about:config" in address bar--> "network.http.pipelining" change to true
"network.http.pipelining.maxrequests" set to 18 and network.http.proxy.pipelining set to true.
