Flock slow

I have just downloaded and installed Flock I expected that it should be a lighter version of Firefox.

It does start faster (at least that's how I feel), but then when I open many sites (blogs) in several tabs, I can feel it's crawling. I don't know what's happening. It doesn't do that with Firefox. So, I am a little dissapointed with Flock.

How's your experience?

AFAIK, flock is wy much heavier indeed. And the strength isn't the performance, rather its capability to deal with social activities on the web.

There has been patches which tries to reduce memory usage by reworking the image storage mechanism as mentioned here:

It just too bad that we have to use git to try it. Not that git is bad but bandwidth is. I don't know how much MiB history we have to pull out with it.

I myself have tried via CVS way, apply the patch with a little fix afterward. It compiles, however, I don't know wether it does really help or not. The numbers on Federico's page spoke it's true but I have no other tool at the moment other than my "reliable" feeling ;)

I think you should take a shot. Just assign it to one of your student if you can't found the time needed to do it yourself ;)

Gitu aja kok repot :D

It does crawl after a while. I read somewhere about memory leak problem, but I'm not sure how it can happen. Perhaps your concerns should be voiced to them as well.

I use it for "social activities" purposes, e.g. blog directly to my wordpress, interact directly with flickr, mash google map, etc.

Himbauan Kepada Hacker & Cracker Indonesia & Malaysia

Kepada Hacker & Cracker Indonesia & Malaysia,

Saya mengharapkan anda tidak melakukan penyerangan atau/dan pengrusakan situs-situs Indonesia dan Malaysia.

Saya mengerti bahwa akhir-akhir ini beberapa masalah di dunia nyata membuat kita kesal dan marah. Namun kekesalan tersebut sebaiknya tidak dilimpahkan ke dunia maya (cyberspace). Semestinya sebelum melakukan aksi yang berdampak negatif, kita bisa melakukan langkah-langkah positif seperti melakukan dialog (melalui email, mailing list, bulletin board, blog, dan media elektronik lainnya).

Kita harus ingat bahwa kita hidup bertetangga dan bersaudara. Yang namanya hidup bertetangga pasti mengalami perbedaan pendapat. Mari kita belajar bertetangga dengan baik.

Saya berharap agar kita yang hidup di dunia maya mencontohkan bagaimana kita menyelesaikan permasalahan dengan kepala dingin dan hati yang lapang, sehingga para pemimpin kita di dunia nyata dapat mencontoh penyelesaian damai. Mudah-mudahan mereka dapat lebih arif dan bijaksana da…

Yummy ...

Books, books, books

A snapshot of stacks and shelves of books that I have to read. The stack on the right side is actually on a chair. You can't see the bottom of it. It's a mess. Actually, it shows that I read them.
