    Hi all,

    Although with my PowerMac I don't have to worry about multi-tasking and having normal stuff + Creative Suite and Dreamweaver open, on my iBook I do!

    I use my iBook for surfing, researching, presenting and writing, and although its ram is maxed its still no multi-tasking brute!

    Therefore I wondered if anyone knows what the 'lightest' weight softwares are for it, I use adium - that seems fine, safari - would firefox be better? or something else?, abiword - which is so much nicer and less clunky than ms word. Any other suggestions for things I can do to optimise it?

    Use Camino + CamiTools instead of Safari or Firefox. It won't be faster at everything but it will feel quite a bit faster.

    Make sure that you're cleaning out the logs. It's easy enough by leaving it doing something from Saturday night through Sunday morning but you can also get certain applications to allow you to run the housekeeping routines on demand.
