    Hey guys. I read hear often but rarely post. I had to sell my beloved macbook for rent money and have found myself using a 500Mhz ibook with 320MB of RAM with the latest version of tiger.

    With my system specs I need to see that I use as little system resources as possible to keep from being bogged down and loosing productivity. What advice or suggestions do you guys have? I'm looking for browsers, video player, music player, mail client, and any other regularly used apps that wouldn't be taxing on my system.

    Any OSX tweaks would be helpful as well. Thanks for both future and past help.

    Howdy. For browsers, check out iCab.
