As big, bad and bloated as the browsers are becoming, the site you visit affects things greatly.

Sites with a reputation for gathering your data, eg google sites & facebook struggle to load on my weakest PC, but more basic sites even netflix have virtually no problems.

This murga forum, with no tracking or ads, loads on pretty much any PC, in any browser.


Yes, I agree with this. Certainly it would be nice to have a browser that uses less memory, but the main overloading issue seems to be a webpage complexity issue. Well written webpages remain fast and lean, but the most popular sites are data gathering and advertising monsters, whose processing really take a hit on system resources.

an another one with vivaldi than I used on pi3 for 2 months in order to get rid of slowing pages
You’ll find easily their home site in Scandinavia
