Internet & Networking According to StatCounter's figures (whatever they're worth) Chrome is now the most popular browser in the world, overtaking Internet Explorer for the first time. How times change. Let's hope Google, Firefox, and Opera have some good Metro stuff coming up, because IE on Windows 8 has a terrible UI.

my current computer. (With 64MB of RAM

Why are you doing this to yourself?* And how did you even end up with such machine now? (my Pentium II 266, that I keep around, has 4 times that much RAM - in all offering fairly comfortable overall experience, browsing close to "modern" with Opera 9.27 ...admittedly, partly because it's a dual CPU machine)

It's fairly easy to find something much better at ~dumpsters. Or (checking my local auction site, post-leasing machines) nice and slick IBM P4 HT 3 GHz, 1 GB of RAM, 80 GB HDD, for an equivalent of ~60 USD.

* Now, sometimes I used that PII 266 as the main machine, for a short time, just to get used to it - and afterwards really experience the speed of modern PC, just for kicks. But other than that...
