Subject: [gentoo-user] a multi-process browser?
Date: Sun, 15 Feb 2009 03:57:18
1 I always wonder if I can run firefox multi-process instead of
2 multi-threads. I hate to see the browser hang trying to open a huge
3 webpage (>10MB) and that's frequent case in China.
4 Usually at such case I have to lanuch a different browser (e.g.
5 epiphany) in order to keep browsing during loading the big page in Fx.
6 And I think, if fx is itself multi-processed, then each tab or window I
7 open is a process, then it is pretty much alike that I open eiphany when
8 firefox is busy. It should work better.
10 If this is not possible just with a USE flag, is there a browser that
11 works in Gentoo and is designed to be mult-process?
13 I only know safari is multi-process (per window) but it doesn't work on
14 Gentoo.
