View Full Version : IE - Child Instances

15-07-2005, 02:00 PM

I have a Extremly fast Celeron 333MhZ :eek:
I am just trying to tweak my browsing speed and system response
during net surfing.

I have multiple window of IE opened while surfing as many ppl do :-)
Does having a child instance of IE speed up system response?....e.g memory usage, CPU usage etc....i know if the parent goes down then they all go zip! :waughh: . Or it doesnt matter whether you open individually or open child instances

Any other little tips will be very much appreciated...even if it makes a tiny weeny bit. Ohh..havent tried Firefox...is it faster than IE?

Anything is better/faster than IE!

Try Firefox, Opera, Thunderbird etc..

The other browsers use tabbed browsing as well.. And you just have to click on a tab to change to whatever, instead of going thru multiple windows, to find the site in IE.

If u open multiple windows in IE or in other browsers, and close the main window, the rest stay open, until u close them.

I dont think many ppl use IE these days. Its so bloated and full of flaws.

They use alternate / free / tabbed browsers.

Opera runs noticeably faster on my old P2 266MHz with 160MB RAM with Win 98 than it does with Firefox or IE.

There is a good site full of tips to squeeze even more speed out of it here (http://nontroppo.org/wiki/OperaPerformance) that I have been told makes a bit of difference, particularly for someone who is on dialup.
