And actually, since you use Firefox, if you want to control Javascript you may want to check out the NoScript extension...that way you could turn off javascript for sites that don't really *need* it if you want.

Try getting the 3.1 beta. I believe the JS engine on that one is a lot faster.

I do use it, but some of the sites that are slowest with Javascript on are...almost nonfunctional with it turned off. Like sites that have submit-less drop-down boxes as a primary means of navigation. *shudder*

On a related note, being both an Opera and Facebook user, I had hoped Opera 10 alpha would be less sluggish in running Facebook's new scripts (the Opera people said on a support forum that they were looking into that), but Opera 10a and Facebook still don't seem to get along well. (Something is likely screwy with how Facebook's scripts are written. I almost never have trouble in Opera with any other JS-heavy sites.)

Btw, it's interesting how much attention is given to Acid3 compared to other tests: It's surely not accidental that Opera 10a doesn't do enormously better than Opera 9 on a test like the Canvas test suite (I just compared Opera 9.63 win32 build 10476 to Opera 10.00a win32 build 1139 and saw an improvement from 72.8% to 74.1%), but low and behold 10a manages to pass with 100/100 on Acid3.

Aha, well I agree with you there...I hate when sites do things like that when they could do something less intensive that would work just as well.

I took my EeePC 701 from 630MHz to 1.2GHz. Then scaled it back down to 1GHz. It runs comfortably there with no added voltage and minimal heat.
