We did some tests when we first tried this software. I’ve just resurrected my old netbook to try again. This is an original eeePC701 with a 667MHz Celeron ULV processor running Linux Mint 10 and Firefox 25. I used to use this PC when away but I now use my Nexus 7 if I don’t have a real laptop with me. So this has not been used since Christmas last. The only hot-rodding this PC has had is it has 2GB of Ram fitted. We checked that the software was usable when using something that was a little pedestrian in performance. It’s slower than my Nexus 7 but not much.
I’ve tried and when I logged in and clicked Tom’s thread it took to the last but one post. It’s obviously less quick than my desktop but it’s not terrible. There was about a 15sec pause from logging in to the 1st page and about 15sec to get to the end of the thread. However, hitting page up or down is almost instaneous. Click the navigate green button and entering a number and there’s a 15 second delay. So there is a delay to get to somewhere but moving small distances is not an issue.
For info, what is the PC you are using (CPU, speed, memory) and which OS browser?
