Web Browser woes

27 Nov


After tests Opera 12 uses around 50mbs!!! Way too much.  So I tried Midori 0.17 – no Flash! So I tried Midori 0.16 – again no Flash!  So I tried Epiphany-webkit – Flash causes Seg Fault.  So I tried Kazehakase-gtk gecko – just crashes almost immediately.  Swiftweasel is not longer supported – Arora is not in the Hardy repos (i’m not gonna compile something that may not work – I saw a number of “Flash does not work” forum entries”) – so I tried the base version of Epiphany-gecko … well blow me!  It works and works well – no problems – just haven’t tested it on TLC CE Linux yet to find out the RAM usage – if it’s under 20mbs or there-abouts it’ll do – it is dog ugly but at least it works!

I’ve only tested most of these on my full Ubuntu installation on my primary lappie but it’s got Hardy running…

    Opera 12 looks beautiful smooth and graphically stunning – that’s why it uses so much RAM – there have been memory leaks with Opera 11.5 – also epiphany is well noted as being hyper-stable – will need to look into making it look a little nicer cos it’s dog ugly!!!
