Mozilla & Gecko clones "In August, Mozilla's Director of Research Andreas Gal, and one of the lead engineers for Firefox OS, Philipp von Weitershausen, gave a couple of presentations in Brazil about Firefox OS. We're now happy to share both the videos and the slides, in various formats for you to see or use, giving your own presentations!" Lots of background on Firefox OS.

The reason eluded me until Giveawayoftheday had Anvir Task Manager on offer as it leaves a taskbar icon that gives you readings of all the major info, CPU, RAM, and HDD activity

As does always-gratis Process Explorer BTW, the one from Mark Russinovich (well, in half-second intervals at minimum, which does the job for me)

WRT old machines - around here I have an AthlonXP 1700+ (~= 1.47 GHz ...but I actually run it at 1.1 GHz & undervolted to minimum supported by mobo, to conserve the decade+ old hardware on the relatively rare occasion it's booting). It's still fairly usable with Chrome or Opera. FF... less so, unfortunately.

(hell, an old version of Opera, 9.27, makes a dual PentiumII 266 kinda usable ;p - with js mostly turned off of course; but I think the web in general started working better in that old Opera, during the last two years or so - might be because the web is becoming more standards-compliant)
