posting first, before the firefox users can load the page. they'll be here in a half hour or so, depending on if it crashes or if they're also trying to load amazon in another tab.
seriously, the only reason i'm using chrom(e|ium) is because firefox is so fucking slow. i have dozens of windows with dozens of tabs in each... in firefox, this cripples every page. fine in chrom(e|ium).
i'd sooner be rid of the creepy google bullshit though. if only firefox ran better.
on my desktop and laptop, both very capable machines, it's slow as fucking molasses. i'm not questioning that you have it running fine, but i just don't understand why it can't perform like that for everyone. i did nothing else but install stock firefox, add adblock, and browse... but if i opened more than a dozen tabs, the browser would freeze up every time it started loading shit, and crash at least once a day.
why is it that sensitive? i don't do anything unusual with my machines other than maybe development shit, and they're in excellent health.

You can, install µMatrix (better be using µBlock already, faggot), go to options, then click on the matrix to have access to Chrom*'s behind-the-scenes requests.
just saw µMatrix and µBlock now, thanks. was using Adblock before, but didn't like how you had to opt-out of their ad bullshit itself... so i guess, faggot confirmed here. I'll take a look at those.
I already unset everything in the settings that can leak that info, thankfully.
"hey i know what would be trendy, let's make the address bar (which commonly holds long strings of relevant data) short as fuck, and stick it in the middle of our top bar!"
"oh also, let's add some shitty generic filters and blending layers to everything in the title, remember, everything looks like glass now"
"oh also let's have everything monochrome except for the window control buttons which are so much more important than the content"
"oh also let's use nonstandard icons for everything so users have to figure out how smart i am at design in order to work this browser"
Yes, get MacType and then disable directwrite. That's it. If you have a 1080p LCD monitor between 96-105ppi, I can give you my config, for optimal font.
Please do. So does MacType only affect Chromium or does it also influence other programs as well? Sorry if that's a tard question, I've legitimately never heard of this software before
It's not a program, it can either alter your registry or run as a service, I use the former.
Create *.ini file in C:\Program Files (x86)\MacType\ini and run mactray again to load that preset.[General]
Oops, forgot to respond to all of your post. It influences every single program unless you add it to the blacklist. Personally, I've added explorer to the blacklist because it was causing me trouble, if you don't want to, it's at the end of the file.
