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

Midori     90MB 
Chromium   89MB
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.
