Very slow to browse

Unread post by Tarq1 » 2021-11-30, 06:18

I don't know the diagnosis of the problem is whether it is from the speed of the Internet or from the system and performance or from the browser

It is because of scripts from YouTube.
I still use a 64 bit capable Pentium 4 670 processor with Pale Moon.

Since you are measuring responsiveness by YouTube, then that will certainly affect your experience. YouTube's main page is loading very slowly due to the scripting on it (their fallback for browsers without WebComponents is slow as tar)
Also, you seem to be on, by the looks of it, very underpowered mobile hardware if you're running Fossapup on a 1366x768 screen, and the screen recording software is saturating one whole core at 25% (assuming the CPU is a quad core). Note, Pale Moon is actually using less CPU while playing a YT video ;-)

So, none of this seems to be an inherent issue with the browser itself.

YouTube's mobile version is a bit snappier. You can force its use using the MTube extension.

Forked extensions :

i find using the duckduckgo search engine for videos is far more responsive than going to youtube itself.I have no problems viewing youtube videos in pale moon whilst using DDG,Obviously you cannot read or post comments but for pure video viewing it is flawless.

Site loads and browses pretty snappy with Mint 20.1 on a thumb drive with persistence, 16GB ram, SSD and 118Mbps download using RealityRipple’s add on, uTube 1.7.
Stay away from crowds.

I tried uTube and other than the non-working autoplay and not being able to use my scripts for locking the quality, it's cool. I hope he adds that in the future.

Check the only preference checkbox in the extension's options.
