While I wait for my old machine to reload Lubuntu. I tried on a 2.4Mhz P4
with 1GB 133Mhz RAM and got the following for Midori
71MB used after boot with Xfce Taskmanager running
84MB used with Midori launched in 7 seconds
106MB with the three web pages loaded.
Amazing. Once again, what's the sequence? Install Lubuntu alpha2
preview2, sudo apt-get update; sudo apt-get upgrade; sudo apt-get
install midori, then reboot, start & measure - is this correct?
Yup, although I do an apt-get dist-upgrade rather than apt-get upgrade.
Am I correct in thinking, you get the memory figure from the tool-tip by
hovering over the Memory usage bar.
I did some more tests on the 128MB machine, a painful experience.
I couldn’t get Arora to start for some reason so it wasn’t tested.
Both chromium and FF 3.6 took over 20 mins. to do the 'expand all', with
FF popping up an awful lot of 'Unresponsive Scripts' messages. All these
tests were carried out three times.
Memory used after boot with Xfce Task Manager running 67MB of 118MB
Usage after launching the browser
Midori 84MB 23 sec. start time
Chromium 77MB 16 sec. start time
FF 3.6 74MB 46 sec. start time
This time is correct, forty six seconds.
Usage after launching the three web sites
FF 3.6 96MB
My initial conclusion are very simple Chromium and FF are unusable in
128MB of RAM with more than a couple of tabs open.
I shall do a few more tests later on different machines and also try gmail
in basic HTML. I’ll also note the VM size for the apps as well.
