I need a lightweight, fast and stable web browser.
I’d try hugov suggestions (provided they don’t use IE controls).
My suggestion: Firefox + NoScript addon, or even consider not installing that Adobe Systems’ crap called Flash Player, which is likely to be the reason your computer suffers when it browses the Internet.
If you stay with Firefox, please modify Keyword.URL
and the default Search Engines
in order to avoid using Google (and other american pay-per-click search engines) as much as possible. Please never use them for commercial purposes. Try to support your own country's search service providers instead.
By all means, don’t use IE or Google Chrome.
I'm using a very low-end PC
Then I believe you will be better off using DEBIAN (or another Linux distribution). If you are planning to get a more powerful computer, I strongly recommend you to get one that comes with Linux out of the box. (Asus… maybe also Acer, Nokia, LG, Samsung). In Linux, via Wine or VirtualBox, you will still be able to use those crappy not-multiplatform Windows Apps that one is enforced
I don't know why people hate Microsoft so much...
If there's no Microsoft, probably the computing era won't be like nowadays. People will use pencil and papers instead of laptop.
To hear this makes me sad. The summation of everyone’s ignorance is what led us to a dictatorship with Microsoft at the top in terms of software, and with Google trying to impose: “I paid Google, ergo sum”
These companies are in very little way innovative. Microsoft, Google, Apple… are just aggressive BUYERS (innovations that are known to work are afterwards whether wolfed or copied by them) with a very imperialistic business model.
and worse, no ahk...
Because of Microsoft’s successful imperialism, in the Linux world there is no newbie-oriented scripting language supported by such a big community as this one.
